Press Release


I-League champions Bengaluru FC will be up against Tampines Rovers FC in the quarterfinals of the 2016 AFC Cup. The first of the two-legged tie will take place at the Kanteerava Stadium on September 14, before the Blues travel to the Singapore National Stadium for the return leg on September 21.

Bengaluru put a slow start behind them to finish Group H in second place behind defending champions Johor Darul Ta’zim. The Blues went one better on their Round-of-16 show in the previous edition, becoming the only Indian side left in the tournament with a 3-2 win over Kitchee SC at the Mong Kok Stadium, in Hong Kong, to enter the quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s short history.

“We've done well to reach this stage of the AFC Cup and are looking to go one better when we face Tampines Rovers in the quarterfinals. Every team has reached the last eight by playing well and we're looking to put on a good performance in front of our fans, who I'm sure will be vocal as always,” said captain Sunil Chhetri.

South China AA will take on holders Johor Darul Ta’zim in the other East Zone quarterfinal, while Air Force Club face Al Jaish and Al Ahed FC go up against Al Muharraq in the West Zone quarterfinals.
