"We are delighted at this win, and this shows what good team work can do. This sets us up perfectly for the Hero I-League and I am really happy with the way the boys responded to the challenge.

We have a lot of areas to work on and the I-League will be competitive to say the least" said, Ashley Westwood, Bengaluru FC coach.

Ashley Westwood's counterpart, Arthur Papas congratulated Bengaluru FC for winning the Federation Cup 2015 title, while also praising his players' team spirit,"I am proud of the way my boys played till the end with one man down.
