Project Description

Sport, at an individual level, helps build character, benefits health and for talented individuals becomes a source of livelihood. However, it is at a community level where sports can have a valuealtering effect which can lead to a more tolerant and inclusive society. Vedanta identifies this dual impact that can be achieved through sports and thus its sports initiatives are focused on two main objectives: Sports for all and Sports for excellence. Vedanta, through its football initiatives in Rajasthan by HZL (Zinc Football Initiative (ZF)), and in Goa by the Iron Ore Business (Sesa Football Academy (SFA)), established on a reclaimed mine, has taken great strides in getting closer to reaching these objectives. Zinc Football trains around 2,000 young people, both girls and boys in its 64 Zinc Football Schools. Sesa Goa also has four similar centres training 500 children on a weekly basis. These centres enable the game to reach the masses and help create a culture of sports in the country. Both academies have their centres of excellence with state-of-the-art infrastructure that have not just developed players for their respective state teams but also contributed to the national setup with seven alumni of SFA playing for the Indian national team and eight playing in the elite Indian Super League. The second edition of ‘Vedanta Women’s Football League’ saw the involvement of 160 female football professionals and provided a platform for them to showcase their talents.
