After the success of Sesa Football Academy at Goa since its inception in 1999, Vedanta aims to expand the reach of grassroots football development to Odisha and other parts of the country. Vedanta recently launched Zinc Football Academy at Zawar, Rajasthan reaching out to aspiring footballers across the state.
Annanya Agarwal, President, Vedanta Sports announced the Group’s vision of positive transformation in sports through quality grassroots training programmes across the country, at FICCI FRAMES-LEAP 2020. Addressing the forum at FICCI’s virtual event on ‘Transformation through Sports Education’, Agarwal said, “Our robust community engagement plan through sports initiatives reaches out to all sections of society. Vedanta Women’s League is a platform launched at Goa, and we also have plans to expand it further at a national level.”
He added: “Sports can indeed be transformative – the values that it helps inculcate and the teachings it can imbibe are unparalleled and are extremely beneficial for the holistic development of an individual.”
Vedanta has made considerable investments focusing firmly on grassroots football development through the academies in Goa and Rajasthan. Vedanta Sesa Goa Iron Ore’s Sesa Football Academy in Goa and Hindustan Zinc-run Zinc Football in Udaipur are operating successfully and churning out quality footballers.
