Mizoram Football Association partners with Reliance to promote the game locally | Techno Glob

In an effort to promote football locally, the Mizoram Football Foundation (MFA) has partnered with Reliance Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of Reliance Industries Limited.

The Naupang (Children) League will be introduced in the state, the Reliance Foundation said in a statement on Monday.

“The Reliance Foundation and the MFA have partnered to expand, transform and create a comprehensive hyper-local pathway and decentralized approach to grassroots football in Mizoram through the Reliance Foundation Young Champs (RFYC) Naupang League,” the statement read.

RFYC is an academy to train young footballers.

The Naupang League aims to develop local ecosystems and provide aspiring and talented footballers from the age of 5, both boys and girls, with competitive and practical exposure, he said.

The league will be hosted in four locations in Mizoram.

The MFA and District Football Associations will host the leagues in Lunglei and Kolasib while the RFYC will operate two leagues in Aizawl and Champhai, according to the statement.

”I am excited about the huge possibilities this will open up for the children of Mizoram, a state heavily invested in football. We remain committed to unlocking the potential of grassroots football across India and helping aspiring footballers realize their full potential,” RF President Nita M Ambani said.

MFA Honorary Secretary Lalnghinglova Hmar said the project could be a game-changer for Mizoram and Indian football.
