The Dempo Sports Club - Senior Team with Club President, Mr. Shrinivas Dempo

Dempo Sports Club (DSC) is India’s leading football club with more than five decades of sporting excellence at the highest levels of the game.

DSC’s ideology is evidenced in the regular actions of its members; demonstrated in their behaviour, playing style and tactical approach to the game, based on the values of passion, hard work, professionalism, and teamwork; exemplified by each individual, past, present and future. DSC endeavours to uphold these values and strengthen them with modern training methods in line with the latest trends in football.

The Club has a bottom-up approach to talent development, focusing on community development, education, grassroots, youth and senior level football; creating a sustainable player development pathway and with home-grown players in the system.

The Club ensures the best environment for nurturing talent and does not promote one specific playing style or impose a single coaching strategy. DSC provides its trainees at the Academy the best opportunity to develop their football, academic, personal and social skills to realise their full potential as they emerge as the country’s finest talent.

The technical team plays a significant leadership role in communicating, shaping and delivering this philosophy in all the Club’s programmes.
