Nilgiri Bisons FC is a new club for people in Nilgiri. Nilgiri Challengers FC was playing in A Division from a long time. Now it’s Nilgiri Biscons FC. It’s one of the oldest club in Nilgiris. This is the first month of their operations after major changes in the management.

After being asked about local players, Club secretary and owner Mr. Rajeev said that they are now planning to give local players better facilities and trying to bring coaches from outside. Club wants to give their players more exposure by participating in various tournaments all over India. Currently they are focusing only on local players because season is about to end. Eventually they are going to make a full fledged academy.
