The Pune franchise was taken over by Varun Tripuraneni, the former CEO of Kerala Blasters, and by Vijay Madduri, a Hyderabad based entrepreneur. 

When they took over the franchise the owners decided to move the Pune franchise to their home city Hyderabad, and thus on 27th August 2019, a club from Hyderabad named Hyderabad FC was officially announced. Later on, it was announced that actor and film producer Rana Daggubati became the joint co-owner for the Hyderabad franchise.
