The documentary narrates the journey of former Rangers ace David Robertson as the coach of Real Kashmir FC, which in its first season finished third in the I-League, which is currently India’s second tier football league.

Real Kashmir FC’s BBC documentary has won the ‘Single Documentary’ category at the British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards Scotland.

Aired by BBC earlier this year, it documented the journey of former Rangers ace David Robertson as the head coach of Real Kashmir FC and its success story in the I-League 2nd division in 2017-18.

Real Kashmir FC co-founder Sandeep Chattoo said, “Our dream, which started as a small team of Kashmiri youth, playing football as a hobby, soon became one of the biggest and the most successful dream runs by any team.”
