Hi, what are you looking for?


Tata delivers a world class CoE for football in Aizawl!

Tata has been at the forefront in the development of football in the country for decades. They have now delivered in the football crazy state of Mizoram where world class sports facilities are hard to find.



Tata Trusts has established a state-of-the-art Centre of Excellence (CoE) for football in Aizawl, Mizoram, to provide world class training and development opportunities to young footballers from the North East. Tata Trusts has handpicked the first batch of 25 student athletes, aged 12-14 years, through meticulous scouting across Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya and Assam, a media release said today. India international Jeje Lalpekhlua, Lalruatthara, Jerry Lalrinzuala, the legendary Shylo Malsawmtluanga and NorthEast United defender Robert Lalthlamuana, were also present at the launching ceremony.



The CoE is equipped with a modern training pitch for on-ground practice, and also houses top notch recovery equipment and a fully equipped physiotherapy room for the student athletes. Tata Trusts has set up 60 grass root academies across six districts of Mizoram to train children in the age group of 6-14 years. The young players will be coached under the expert guidance of Senior Assistant Coach Bitan Singh who led the Minerva Punjab U-16 team to U-16 I-League glory in 2017. Colm Joseph Toal will be the Head Coach of the CoE who was also the former Technical Director of the AIFF will join from May 2018.



A praiseworthy step by the Tata Trusts who have given a lot to indian Football as lack of world class facilities in the North East has been a long standing issue. Let’s hope this academy helps that cause!
