    Typical chut**a making Times of India article,where did they mention about academy. ??

    Article only states about change in La Liga Kick-off time to increase their popularity.

    F**k these Europeans.Always looking to make some quick $
  • It's better not to expect top European clubs to develop Academies in India. They will always focus on the marketing side. Bayern Munich did try to set up an Academy in Kolkata but the WB goverment failed to provide them the land they asked for.

    Pune Football Club Are Set To Launch The Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA) On July 18

    Pune Football Club (PFC) are set to launch the Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA) on 18 July, 2011 with an objective to incorporate and sync the dire need of aspiring footballers go through a systemised youth development program, which eventually will lead to produce talent for both - the Indian market and Pune FC themselves.

    PPFCA will be headed by PFC Head of Youth Development, Ranjan Choudhary, who formerly worked as Director at the Tata Football Academy (TFA), and shall comprise of 30 footballers who will form make the first batch of the academy.

    Of the 30, twenty-five aspirants made it through the grind of open trials involving 280 players conducted across the length and breadth of the country over the past six months and meticulously shortlisted by Choudhary. The other five are players retained from the existing under-19 team.

    Intentions are to have a two-year residential program shall for the trainees based at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Hostel, Balewadi, and travel to the Pune FC training ground based at Mamurdi to train.

    Speaking about PPFCA, Pune FC Head of Operations Chirag Tanna said, “This program was identified to fill the gap of scouting for talent at professional level and then grooming them, which was found to be time consuming.”

    Tanna added: “PFC is confident of a full placement of the young footballers in the Division I and Division II of the I–League, given the 80 percent placement they have had for the previous batch of the U–19 talents in 2010-2011.”

    While the PPFCA is a major step towards youth development by Pune FC, the club as earlier will continue its commitment to hone talent through the existing Under-17 and Under-15 programmes.

    “In due course we will make the existing Under-17 and Under-15 set ups into two-year non-residential training programme, but before that we have an eye on getting an Under-13 group together which will take care and complete the development cycle from grass-root stage,” Tanna informed.

    With emphasis on high performance, all PPFCA trainees would go through a strict evaluation system every six months.

    “Modern football demands 10,000 hours of training by a player to materalise into the ultimate aim of playing as a professional. Now, that's the modern trend of professional football, which I must say is very critical in player development,” explained Choudhary.

    In addition to football training, PPFCA have tied up with Vidya Valley School for the overall and continued development of the young footballers, which will enable the footballers to pursue their education though the distance learning programmes.

    As a sustained effort, Pune FC’s Youth Development has already begun working closely with Pune-based BK Birla School and the Vidya Valley School by creating various football modules with an aim to churn out local talent.

    “The ultimate aim is to groom talent and ensure they are picked up by other clubs, and create a feeder system, which in turn will help gain some returns for the efforts put in," said Tanna.

    Haryana Football Association to build soccer academies

    New Delhi, Jul 1 :The Haryana Football Association (HFA) today unveiled plans of building several academies and nurseries with a view to emerge as the dominant state in the country over the next five years.

    According to HFA chief Deepinder Singh Hooda, two soccer academies will be set up in Gurgaon and Rohtak. In addition, four football nurseries will also be established in Hisar, Ambala, Gurgaon and Rohtak.

    "The academy in Gurgaon will be the first one to open. It be inaugurated later this year," Hooda told the media in the national capital.

    "A total of 31 boys have already been selected and trials will continue over the next few months," he added.

    Haryana Olympic Association (HOA) president P V Rathee, who was also present on the occasion, asserted that after dominating the national scene in wrestling and boxing and winning bagfuls of medal at the international level, Haryana will pull of a simlilar feat in football in the future.

    "We aim to dominate Indian football within the next four to five years. Then we will aim to attain international standards," he stated.

    Emphasising the need for ensuring proper training and guidance for the players, Hooda informed that the HFA is trying to bringing in foreign coaches.

    "We are looking at bringing in best possible coaches. Earlier, we were hampered by financial constraints, but now, with sponsors are coming in, we will be able to hire foreign coaches," he stated.

    Adding spice from the sidelines

    The investment climate in Indian football is about as favourable as in Somalia or Myanmar, but Haryana seems to have managed a tie-up that would delight most housewives around the country. Masala giants Mahashian Di Hatti (MDH) entered into an agreement with the Haryana Football Assoication (HFA)


    on Friday to provide financial assistance to two football academies, in Gurgaon and Rohtak, effectively taking the kitchen to the field.
    "MDH will be providing R82 lakhs over three years - 25 for the first, 27 and 30 for the next two," said HFA President, Deepinder Hooda.

    While the sum may not be overwhelming, given that the cost of running a world-class academy runs into crores, it is a small step taken by a company that understands the taste-buds better than the scientific physical conditioning of children to compete in a physical sport — unless of course, they're taught about the potency of chilli powder early on, which would leave the lawmakers scratching their heads.

    Besides, the presence of Mahashya Dharampal — turban, necklaces, hand-folds, et al - might open up a whole new viewers market consisting chiefly of home-makers which would give a uniquely Indian spin to the 'soccer mom'. Garam masala, not necessity, seems to be the mother of invention.
