"Our motive of forming Denzong Boyz was to give a platform to the players who are struggling outside Sikkim, as well as some place at international level also. But what we have seen is that they are not getting a chance to play, though good clubs of India recruits them," Tsewang Jigmee Lachungpa, Manager, Denzong Boyz Football Club.


The club depends on self-contributions and sponsorships from small companies. It has some foreign players who play during local tournaments.
