    India U-14 Team Academy in Bangalore


    “India is a strategic partner in FIFA's scheme of things,” said Thierry Regenass, FIFA's Development Director here at a press briefing here on Saturday.

    Regenass along with Jean Michel Benezet, Technical Director, FIFA, flew down this morning to inspect the facilities coming up as part of the Goal Project II at the Bangalore Football stadium.

    Benezet expressed satisfaction at the progress made over the last couple of years. “Things are moving on the right path… and we are satisfied. Lot more needs to be done”.

    The two were taken around the new turf and the building that will accommodate the various aspects of the academy for the under 14, by All India Football Federation (AIFF) General Secretary Kushal Das and Karnataka State Football Association (KSFA) president A.R. Khaleel. The academy building will include rooms to house 60 players, a gymnasium, conference rooms, dining area besides offices for the officials.

    Talking about the facilities, Regenass said: “Two things were lacking as far as India is concerned. Firstly, the lack of infrastructure which is sorely felt throughout the country and secondly: a system for youth development programme”.

    With the astro-turf and now the Academy block coming up the infrastructure at least for the youth from and around this place is addressed. And with such academies coming up in each zone and strategic footballing centres, a programme can be put in place.

    Also scouting, nurturing and developing the talent base is essential and India has a vast potential waiting to be tapped” said the FIFA delegate.

    The FIFA Regional Development Office will also be shifted from Colombo (Sri Lanka) to New Delhi, early 2012, which is expected to benefit Indian football in a large way.

    Bengaluru, Karnataka, October 19, 2011 /India PRwire/ -- Ozone Globosports, the sports arm of Ozonegroup, a leading Bangalore based real estate organization, and the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) have entered into a unique partnership to set up a Football School exclusively focused on training underprivileged children. This program is being undertaken by the KNVB not just to train underprivileged children but also to educate local coaches to become better football coaches in accordance with the principles of the WorldCoaches Programme. This program is an internationally renowned program conducted in many countries across the world. Since the start of the WorldCoaches program in October 2009, more than 2,200 WorldCoaches have been trained and the program has reached more than 66,000 children. Both Ozone Globosport and KNVB will closely work together to use Football as a path to a better future. This program is specially designed to uplift the section of underprivileged children who are between the ages of 7 to 13. The objective is not just to groom world class football players, but to also become good citizens of society.

    Mr. Vasudevan, CMD of Ozonegroup, said, "We are extremely excited about our partnership with the Dutch Football Association, KNVB. We hope to promote football among the children of our country, and give them the opportunity to excel through better coaching.

    Pune FC launched their full fledged academy Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA) on 18 July, 2011, with an all residential scheme for the U-19 level with a view to have similar facilities for their U-17 and U-15 category squads.

    Presently the club has a two year program for the trainees under the guidance of PFC Head of Youth Development Ranjan Chowdhury, who was formerly the Director of the Tata Football Academy.

    Vision

    The Academy Shall Help Widen The Talent Pool In India....

    The objective behind the setting up of the academy was to provide a viable feeder system for the senior team and with the lack of academies in India, also to set-up an institution that would help widen the talent pool in the country.

    At the time of the academy’s launch, Pune FC Head of Operations Chirag Tanna stated about the setup’s objective as, “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.”

    BACKGROUND


    The club owners, the Piramal Group have been very pro-active about the club’s activities and recently revealed in an interview how they want to make Pune FC an “institution”.

    Chirag Tanna revealed to Goal.com “It was a decision by the management. Infact we had decided on it from the day the club was formed that we would look to have an all residential academy later.”

    The club hopes that in time, with this youth system providing them with players for the senior team and also with the option of selling some of these players to other clubs, the setup would become economically self-sufficient.

    The academy is not based on any European system, but is built on a system to benefit PFC.

    I know and what I am saying is that I agree that they are the best but I am also saying that Pune FC are really the only professional club in India. The only thing they don't do right is give out the attendance. Other than that they are the best.
