The project is designed to be a complete live-in ecosystem where budding footballers would get round-the-clock care, education and training right where they are growing up.

1 football field uses over 1 lac lts. of water / day. we must be conscious of that and ensure that the whole site acts as a rainwater harvesting engine to charge the ground water during the monsoons. Also to ensure that no water is wasted and used across the site. pic.twitter.com/vxkUcNZPvy

I am deeply passionate about this and would love to speak to brands and investors that believe in Indian Football. With a facility like this we can light a fire that can galvanise a billion Indians to dream the same dream by 2034. If you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
FC Goa, as a club, are about to face a historic milestone when they take part in the AFC Champions League this year.
