Tata Trusts have partnered with U Dream Football for offering international football training to young talent from North East India, paving the path for them to pursue the sport as a profession.
It is a one-of-a-kind learning and development programme that lays equal emphasis on the academic development of young athletes and an opportunity to pursue higher studies at a German university or institution, helping them find the right balance between sports and education. The North East region of India has the maximum number of football players in the country. However, with the lack of quality grassroots programmes, growth of talent suffers owing to lack of opportunities for playing against quality teams. The absence of professionally trained football coaches in India also acts to stunt progress. Just as there is a need for talent development programmes, there is an equal need for a programme that aids the development of coaches, giving them opportunities to enhance their skills and exposure.
Tata Trusts U Dream Football recognises this gap and the need for programmes that will nurture talent to help youngsters grow into professional football players.
The main objectives of the programme are:
Homi Mody Street,
