GOA SUPER CUP IS NEAR
We are pleased to present you information about the Goa Super Cup – Season 6 (9 – 13 May 2019).
The GOA SUPER CUP (GSC) is India’s premier youth football tournament held annually in the state of Goa. The May 2019 edition will be the SIXTH edition of the GSC.
ABOUT GOA SUPER CUP: The GSC is organised by Football School of India (FSI). FSI is headquartered in Navi Mumbai & has over 22 training centres across India. The GSC’s organising committee includes the founders of FSI who are former India international players & are currently involved with India’s national teams in various capacities. The organising committee also includes heads & managers with more than 6 years of experience in organising & managing Indian teams on tours to more than one dozen annual youth tournaments in several European countries, which is the football hub of the world. With the combined experience of these committee members, the GSC has been designed to provide a safe, healthy, India-centric environment for budding Indian players to play in a high-quality youth tournament.
Importance: The GSC provides your child & his team the opportunity to compete in an inspiring atmosphere. The GSC brings together academy & school teams from different parts of the country as well as the Gulf countries. GSC attempt to ensure that teams from different regions will face each other at the group stages. At a young age, this can help your child to feel any difference in playing styles or natural attributes like physical structure, strength, agility, etc. of their opponents from other regions.
Thanks to the strong network of the GSC organising committee, scouts of various Indian teams are present at the tournament. This means that your child has the best chance of being noticed for his talent or potential & if lucky, a call-up to a bigger team or even the national team camp is possible!
As the GSC is set to expand in the coming years, we believe the participation & winning certificates from the GSC will gather more value. Apart from the football, your child will be having a lot of fun along with the learning with his team mates – it is Goa after all! Important lessons in team-work, social behaviour, self-discipline, hygiene will occur to the child & the 4 days away from parents will allow the players to know a little more about themselves; to grow as individuals. In effect, we will be contributing a little towards creating mentally & physically healthy youth for our nation.
