The U16 boys from the Mumbai Strikers Performance Academy were on a roll at the Rotary Cup 2017 that was held on the 21st and 22nd of January. They had an amazing run and took down some of the finest teams to reach the finals. The tournament was held at the newly built Athlon Turf in Kalidas Complex at Mulund (West). The atmosphere was wonderful as people came in numbers to watch the tourney and both days were filled with some brilliant football.

The MSPA boys started off with a tough draw against Oscar Foundation which went into the tie-breakers after a 2-2 scoreline. Oscar Foundation failed to convert one spot kick that cost them the game and MSPA progressed to the second round. MSPA now faced Sunday Boys and it was a comprehensive 4-0 victory over them as they progressed to the semi-final where they were drawn against Mulund Phoenix. It was an entertaining semi final with MSPA thrashing Mulund Phoenix by a scoreline of 5-0. It looked like a cakewalk to the finals but with NGFC also having a marvellous run, the crowd was in for a tough final in the U16 category. NGFC did not leave an inch for the MSPA lads to perform and made it difficult for them in the last match of the tournament. NGFC kept a clean sheet and flogged MSPA with 5 goals to win the championship in the U16 category.
