Mumbai: Bangalore F.C. and the reserve teams of Kerala Blasters FC will face the English premier league sides in the Next Generation Cup.
The tournament is part of the long-standing partnership between the Premier League and Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) to support football development in India.
The youth teams of both Indian Super League clubs had qualified for the international tournament by finishing in the top two at a qualifying event held earlier this year.
The eight-team Next Generation Cup features five youth teams from Premier League clubs and an academy team from South Africa alongside Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters FC.
The teams will be split into two groups and will play their first match on July 27 in London and the Midlands.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “This event builds on our continued work with the Hero Indian Super League, to support the development and growth of football in India.
“It also provides a great opportunity for young players across the leagues to meet and compete, learn about each other’s cultures and develop both on and off the pitch.”
During the tournament, the Premier League and its clubs will also hold knowledge sharing workshops to support the ISL clubs involved.
