The Golden Eagles aim to complete a full circle to compete for major trophies with their academy graduates in the coming years
Dempo Sports Club was one among the best Indian clubs until their infamous pull out from the I-League. They have represented the country in Asia, five-time national champions, second division champions, Federation Cup, Durand Cup and two-time Super Cup champions with their last major title in 2015-16 season before pulling out of the I-League in 2017.
Three years since, Dempo Academy has won quite a few laurels themselves. They won three back-to-back GFA (Goa Football Association) U-14 League titles. After finishing runners-up in two consecutive seasons, the U-16 side clinched the GFA U-16 title in 2019-20 without a single defeat while the Under-18 side claimed the GFA U-18 title once in 2017-18.
Although part of the 2019-20 season had to be deferred due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Dempo’s youth sides have qualified for the AIFF (All India Football Federation) Sub Juniors (U-14) and Junior (U-16) and the Elite League (U-18).
