On Sunil chhetri’s birthday a Webinar was organized by Football Delhi,. The AIFF General Secretary Mr. Kushal Das acknowledged Football Delhi on the initiative.
Mr Kushal Das said, “I wish Sunil a very happy 26th birthday. Even though he says he is 36. Looking at his fitness, commitment and agility on the field, I am sure he is only 26.”
Mr. Das urged Football Delhi to come up with a strategy including vision and specific goals for short and long term. He said “such a document will help Football Delhi to raise resources from Government and prospective sponsors.”
“It is impossible to develop football without proper resources. The strategic plan needs to be developed after engaging with all stakeholders, and AIFF is ready to provide guidance on this,” said Mr Kushal Das.
“Football Delhi is at a very advantageous location position. The AIFF Headquarters is barely an hour’s drive away. AIFF organizes nearly 1500 matches across the country through its League and Competions department every season, and over 30000 Golden Baby Leagues through the league operators. The Technical Director who overseas grassroots, youth development and coach education is also based at the Football House. It would be immensely beneficial for Football Delhi to take advantage of this knowledge bank,” added Mr Das
The General Secretary also admired Mr. Shaji Prabhakaran, (President of Football Delhi)and his efforts of his team for trying to bring in change.
