In the most recent and positive development, Mumbai Strikers SC Co-founder, Mr. Rohit D’Souza earned his place in the Mumbai Football Association Committee. After spending nearly 20 patient years in the football system, this progressive move signals an upward trend in Rohit’s career as an administrator.

Rohit D’Souza has been actively playing football as a defender for Mumbai Strikers SC which is now competing in the Elite Division.

Apart from his playing career, Rohit has also made his mark as a Coach and won championships with the Mumbai Sub-Junior Girls team in 2017 and Mumbai Senior Women’s team in 2020. He is also on board with ISL club Mumbai City FC and works with the Grassroots & Youth Teams since its inception. Rohit has immense experience in working with the little ones in sport.
