These days, youngsters prefer social networking, binge-watching television series and playing video games over sweating it out in the field. The adrenaline rush, strength competitiveness and the winning spirit that comes along with sports such as cricket, basketball, tennis and football, have clearly taken a back seat. And, that is where SARE Homes Hindustan Times Great Indian Football Action comes in. The tournament offers a perfect platform for young football enthusiasts to showcase their footballing prowess — some of the best teams from Delhi-NCR will compete for the Cup of Dreams.

This year, SARE Homes HT GIFA has collaborated with the Primera División aka La Liga (Spanish football league), so expect the intensity of the action to go up by a notch or two. As the global football partner for SARE Homes HT GIFA this year, La Liga will be giving young football talent from across the city an opportunity to showcase their skills, learn from the best and nurture the love for the game.

“I got to hear about HT GIFA last year through a friend last year but unfortunately couldn’t register. I went to watch some matches and cheer for my friend. I have been waiting for the opportunity to participate since and am definitely going to register this year.” — Kritika Bhatt, student

Kritika Bhatt, a student says, “I got to hear about HT GIFA through a friend last year but unfortunately couldn’t register. I went to watch some of the matches and cheer for my friend too. I have been waiting for the opportunity to participate, since then, and am definitely going to register this year.”

Last year’s participant, Naresh Rawat, who is looking forward to the tournament again, says, “HT GIFA was an amazing experience last year. It provided me with an opportunity to be part of a platform where I got to play with some of the best players in the city. It brought together the community with parents and kids alike. Though we failed to win last year yet I got to learn a lot and improve my game. I will definitely register this year too!”
