Odisha FC was delighted to announce that it had partnered with NGO Youth for Sustainability (YfS) to develop football at the grassroots level by touring different parts of Odisha. YfS is a vertical under the Human Circle Foundation and has been active in a lot of youth-centric social activities.
OFC and YfS will together visit different hotspots in various parts of Odisha and conduct grassroots football programs including an 11-a-side game at the end of the day. They will provide footballing equipment to the local football clubs there and trained coaches will show them how to use that equipment. Promising footballers will be scouted from those hotspots and will also be called up for Odisha FC’s youth team camps.
