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

"Its 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 clubs history and Im 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.
