We are extremely happy with the way things have shaped up in the last year and a half: Ghouse on Bengaluru FC- Rangers FC partnership
While Bengaluru FC have dominated Indian football for the last six-seven years, the Rangers have won 54 Scottish League titles. Shedding some light on their partnership with the Scottish club, the JSW Sports CEO said:
"Almost from day one of starting BFC, there have been a lot of European teams that have approached us, wanting to collaborate or wanting to have an association with us. We never felt the right match, or we never felt that the objectives out of it were right. All through the Rangers conversation, it felt like they were the right people, the right team that we wanted to be associated with, and it was a mutually beneficial relationship."
"We are extremely happy with the way things have shaped up in the last year and a half. There was a lot more that we had planned, but unfortunately, we could not execute it because of the pandemic. We might have to push it for hopefully not too much longer."
Mustafa Ghouse signed off by saying that even the Rangers FC were so far happy with their partnership.
