World class football training in NE
 IMPHAL, Dec 20 - In a bid to facilitate the youngsters of the region, Tata Trusts is planning to open a world class training facility which will be one of the biggest in the country in terms of its outreach programme, for young (both boys and girls) footballers in Northeast India.

Under this initiative, Tata Trusts in collaboration with state governments of Mizoram and Manipur is planning to provide training and development opportunities to 4500 children between 6-14 years across 90 grassroots football centres (GFC) as part of its primary level intervention, according to Biswanath Sinha, head of sports, Tata Trusts.

In the second level intervention, talented children stationed at the newly developed Centre of Excellence (CoE) will be given world-class training so that some of them can be sent to the main Atletico de Madrid Football Academy in Madrid for further training, Sinha added.
