Bengaluru FC today announced former India captain Rahul Dravid as their ambassador for the upcoming Indian Super League (ISL) season.

“It’s great to be an ambassador for Bengaluru FC, a team who I have been tracking across the last four seasons. Also, the connect is instant given I am a Bangalore boy,” said Dravid.

“The way the city has responded to BFC has been tremendous and the club has some of the most passionate fans. The ISL will be a new chapter in the club’s history and I’m looking forward to being part of it in my capacity with BFC.”
