A uniquely structured league format tournament, the Sunfeast Dream Cream Roots Football League will be played out in a league format for all categories.

The league follows the small sided games philosophy to give more touches to players and develop more skillful players. The matches vary from 3v3, 5v5 and 6-a-side depending on the age category. The duration of the matches also vary according to the age groups - with the U15s playing a 50 minutes match divided into four quarters of 12.5 minutes each, while the U7's play four quarters of 5 minutes each. Another unique feature of the league is that, all the players in a team have to play a minimum of 2 quarters in each match, to ensure everyone gets equal playing time. The last round of matches are scheduled on the 28th of February. All matches are officiated by referees from the Karnataka State Football Association.
The participants who register individually are divided into teams based on their level of play and are coached by parent volunteers, with as many as 26 parent coaches taking charge of various teams.
An opportunity for junior football players to participate in an organized playing environment, the RFL is an initiative towards inspiring more children in these age groups to make football their preferred sport and consequently building the base of football in the community.
