Shirish Sports has taken a fantastic initiate to have this one-of-a-kind football tournament in Bihar. Football is not a sport Bihar is known for. Bihar has given a number of football players that have played for the Indian team.

To name, an Indian national team player and current Kerala Blasters FC wing-back, Nishu Kumar, is one such player who hails from Muzzafarnagar.

The tournament has an objective to become far-reaching and better in the coming years. We hope that the Bihar Soccer League opens a new horizon to football and especially the Indian football setup.
