New Delhi: Elite Football League of India (EFLI) is proud to announce the launch of its orientation program for athletes in Jaipur, Jalandhar, Chennai and Bangalore. Based on the number of pre-signed candidates, the EFLI is expecting a record-breaking turnout once again.These orientation programs conducted by EFLI will play a dual role. They aim at training athletes on the game itself and simultaneously open the doors of employment thereby motivating them to take up American football as a full time career option.Speaking about this development, Mr. Richard Whelan, CEO, EFLI said, “I’m overwhelmed and excited by the expected turnout of more than 5000 candidates. I am so pleased to sign on so many of India’s elite athletes. It is heart-warming to see so many gifted athletes, many of who travel from far reaching rural areas to be a part of this new initiative. I have such respect for these young men. The response to the EFLI has simply been extremely positive and encouraging thanks largely to these outstanding athletes. The whole process has been a lot of fun.”

Jaipur: Venue: Sawai Mansing Stadium, September 5 to 10.
