In their bid to promote the sport of football and provide the best platform for the kids in the city, Jamshedpur FC launched their second Football School in the region in conjunction with Kerala Samajam Model School (KSMS), Golmuri. This is the club’s second football school in the city with the first one being opened at Mt. Litera Zee School, back in August.

The school was inaugurated by KSMS Vice Principal, Rajan Kaur and by Jamshedpur FC’s Assistant Manager – Marketing and Operations, Jal Sonpal. The inauguration was also graced by the presence of Jamshedpur FC’s Head of Grassroots and Youth Development, Kundan Chandra.

The Football School at KSMS drew a tremendous response from the school kids as the registration day on October 27 saw over 100 participants registering for admission in the School. The kids had a ball on the field as the coaches and volunteers gave footballing lessons to the ever-attentive children.

Talking about the club’s initiative which saw an immense response from the parents and their children, Kundan Chandra said, “It was great to see the enthusiasm of the parents and the kids. I really like how Jamshedpur shows enthusiasm for football! And we hope to spread the joy in other schools as well.”

After a successful start with KSMS and Mt. Litera Zee School, Jamshedpur FC now plans to kick-start various Grassroots Football Schools across the city in the 2018/19 season.
