Former NFL - MVP Kurt Warner visited India on 6-Nov-2013 to witness the match between Hyderabad Skykings & Banglore Warhawks at Begumpet Hockey Stadium, Hyderabad

Is considered one of the best undrafted players of all time following a 12-year career, regarded as one of the greatest stories in NFL history.

Warner first attained stardom while playing for the St. Louis Rams from 1998-2003, where he won two NFL MVP awards in 1999 and 2001 as well as the Super Bowl MVP award in Super Bowl XXXIV. He led the 2008 Arizona Cardinals to Super Bowl XLIII (the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl berth), and owns the three highest single-game passing yardage totals in Super Bowl history. Warner currently holds the seventh-highest career passer rating of all-time (93.7), and the third-highest career completion percentage in NFL history with 65.5%. In August 2013 20th Century Fox signed a deal to produce a Feature Film on Kurt life.

In addition to his contribution to the game of football, Kurt Warner and his wife, Brenda, have established the public charity, First Things First, in 2001. The charity serves as a vehicle for the couple to reach out to the community to share their blessings with those in need.

"I am extremely excited about the possibilities of the EFLI," says Warner. "I became a partner for two primary reasons. First, to expand the reach of what I believe is the greatest team sport in the world. The game of football has a chance to impact the lives of many people and families in India, like it did for mine. Second, I believe the success of EFLI will present us with some amazing opportunities to impact their communities from a charitable perspective. I believe we will be able to use the great game of football to truly impact the people of India, both on and off the field, and help many to improve on their quality of life."
