All-India Inter-Academy Tournament in Durgapur

The Mohun Bagan-SAIL Football Academy will organise the first-ever All-India Inter-Academy Football Tournament later this month. Durgapur in West Bengal will host the tournament, which will be played from November 19 to 27 with eight renowned football academies from across India taking part.

The Academies which are set to take part are hosts Mohun Bagan SAIL Football Academy (Durgapur), Tata Football Academy (Jamshedpur), Sesa Football Academy (Goa), Sambalpur Football Academy (Orissa), JCT Football Academy (Phagwara, Punjab), Dehradun Football School (Uttarakhand), Kenkre Football Academy (Mumbai), Bangalore Football School (Karnataka).

The eight participating football academies will be split into two groups of four teams each with the top two moving into the semifinals to be played on November 25, while the final will be played on November 27. The semifinals and final of the tournament will be telecast live by Bengali channel 'R Plus'.

The tournament will be good exposure for young aspiring footballers from across India at the youth level. There is sadly a lack of competitions at this level.
