Odisha Sports kicks-off vaccination drive for India U-17 boys!

Providing paramount importance to safety and health of its players, Odisha Sports have led from the front to lent their hands for yet another time to support Indian football by kick-starting a vaccination drive for the India U-17 boys who are based in Bhubaneswar.

The Government of India had announced on December 25, 2021, that children in the age group of 15-18 years will be eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccination amidst rising concerns over the Omicron variant. That prompted Odisha Sports to waste no time and join the fight against the pandemic, arranging for the vaccinations.

AIFF Deputy General Secretary Abhishek Yadav appreciated the Odisha Government’s long standing partnership with Indian football, mentioning, “Odisha Sports has always given paramount importance to the well-being of players and officials. Apart from the fantastic infrastructure, the recent vaccination of the U-17 team reflects the empathy of Odisha Sports towards sports and sportspersons.”

“Odisha has been a second home to Indian football and the team feels safe and secure here,” Abhishek added.

Odisha Sports has been an ardent supporter to take Indian Football forward together over the years with Bhubaneswar being the home of Indian Arrows, besides hosting the Indian Senior Women’s Team, the Hero Gold Cup, the Super Cup, Indian Super League matches, and much more.
