"The idea is always to try to extend Mission XI Million to as many relevant stakeholders as possible. Delhi Dynamos is an ideal partner in New Delhi, they are very focused on grassroots and the development of talent in the region," said Javier Ceppi, Tournament Director for FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017.

The partnership will present an opportunity for various physical education teachers to work closely with the experienced coaches of Delhi Dynamos. The coaches will mentor and train the PE teachers, so that they can instill the right coaching methods.
