NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) kicked-off preparations for implementing its long-term Grassroots vision in Guwahati on the 30th of January. In a meeting chaired by Club Owner, John Abraham, NEUFC invited the Heads and Principals of prominent schools in Guwahati to engage in an open discussion regarding the implementation of a robust Grassroots program.
Amongst the attendees were:
- Sanskriti the Gurukul
- NPS International
- Royal Global School, Guwahati
- South Point School
- DPS Guwahati
NEUFC shared its vision of developing the North-East's Grassroots community and also sought the support of the schools in attendance. The presentation was met with strong approval from the stake-holders who pledged their support to the cause.
John Abraham stressed on the point of giving the country's football hotbed a concrete pathway to the top, "We are the gold-mine of footballing talent. Each state is brimming with unfound and undiscovered potential and it is our duty to give such prodigies an opportunity to showcase themselves."
NEUFC also introduced the concept of "Power Centres" which is an attempt to create talent pools across the eight states of the North-East. For those interested to know more please follow the link: http://www.neutdfc.com/neufc-power-centre
