BENGALURU: Bengaluru FC today announced former India captain Rahul Dravid as their ambassador for the upcoming ISL season.

"It’s great to be an ambassador for Bengaluru FC, a team who I have been tracking across the last four seasons. Also, the connect is instant given I am a Bangalore boy," said Dravid.

"The way the city has responded to BFC has been tremendous and the club has some of the most passionate fans.

The ISL will be a new chapter in the club’s history and I’m looking forward to being part of it in my capacity with BFC."

Bengaluru FC CEO, Parth Jindal felt the club has found a perfect fit in Dravid.

"Getting Rahul Dravid involved with Bengaluru FC is a huge honour for all of us. Being a true Bengalurian and a believer in youth, we can think of no one who imbibes the values and ethics of this club more than him."

The Blues kick-off their debut season in the ISL with a home fixture against Mumbai City FC on November 19 at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium.
