May be we all like to talk about role model in a club in our country...here is another role model up for other federations
WIFA , the state federation of Maharashtra has been doing a fabulous job in recent times to improve the state of game in maharashtra by various ways.
1.wifa is the 1st federation to understand the need of local and eligible coach, and the result is we are witnessing a aiff license scheme in all over Maharashtra to have as many as 5000 eligible coaches for youth teams only from Maharashtra...and making it mandatory for all school and local teams to have coaches for them as soon as the target is reached in time of 4-5 years.
2.The working of cooperage is being run at such a pace that they may reach the target of having a fully renowned ground even before the 3 years as promised....
3.everybody here talk about the interaction of fans, does this really matters for the fans from Maharashtra,,..wifa has a Facebook page in which they regularly update the various schemes of wifa,videos and photos of working of cooperage and the live score updates of some local matches too......
if this way of work continues there may be long time left for us to see some great quality teams and players coming from the state of Maharashtra....and make it to top of Indian football.....

    5000 is too less a capacity. it will mean high price of tickets..although for i-league matches at the moment its fine

    ya..hopefully they try to increase the capacity to at least 10-15k if possible. ..hope we see the full packed stadium at least with this less capacity

    my guess from what i heard that because there is not enough space for more stands as already the stadum has shrunked from before

    The space has not shrunk. It was small to start with. i dont think the capacity can be increased any further unless some major technology is used/invented
