In its bid to promote football at the grassroots level in India, Delhi Dynamos FC’s
Football Development Wing has joined hands with India’s first privately owned
Sports Science and Medicine Centre, Sporting Ethos, welcoming them as the High-
Performance partner for football development initiative of the club. This partnership will
work in tandem with the recently signed Gatorade deal.
Sporting Ethos will work closely with the Elite Youth Teams and young athletes from Soccer Schools of Delhi Dynamos FC. Apart from Sport Psychology sessions, Sporting Ethos will offer services ranging from body composition analysis to injury prevention, further helping Delhi Dynamos’ cause of football development.
“Maintaining confidence both on and off the field is an important aspect for a young
footballer and it is important that such things are taught from an early age. The tie up with
Sporting Ethos will have a positive impact on our young footballers as Sports Psychology is
something that is still majorly ignored in the footballing sphere. Delhi Dynamos has been
working extensively to promote football in the grassroots level, and this is another step
taken in the right direction,” Ashish Shah, CEO of Delhi Dynamos FC said.
Building confidence, developing mental strength and having a strong approach to the game
are important aspects that need to be defined for a footballer from his initial days, and the
highly trained and professional team of Sporting Ethos will ensure that the young athletes of Delhi Dynamos FC get the best support.
“We are very pleased to partner Delhi Dynamos in incorporating a scientific approach in
their Football development initiative. In modern sport, Sport Science has been an integral
part of high performance and includes individualized attention to both the physical and
mental aspects of an athlete’s development. Since Football is a team game, it is important to understand both individual and team goals and to help align them for achieving constant
progress. Along with the above, Sporting Ethos will focus on inculcating the right habits
when it comes to recovery. nutrition, strength; conditioning and injury prevention to pave
the way for high performance and longevity in the sport,” Rishabh Jaiswal, Founder and MD
of Sporting Ethos said.
