The Forca Goa Foundation was created with the aim of building a robust football ecosystem for children. Conceived in 2017, the Foundation has its beginnings in ISL club, FC Goa's grassroots football programme - the experience of which shaped the understanding that there is a need for focusing on football at the grassroots level.
What is grassroots football?
Grassroots football to us means organised children’s football which is practised regularly at a non-professional level for health, educational, social purposes as well as the love of the game. We have experienced how playing football benefits individuals and how the game can mobilise communities to work together. It is also evident that Indian footballers will be competitive at an international stage only if the country is able to provide high quality footballing opportunities to its children.
