Ever since the then Chief Minister of Goa, Shri. Manohar Parrikar inaugurated the 1st GFDC Football Centre at Valpoi on 10th December 2012, GFDC has been continuously spreading it’s wings across the length and breadth of the State.

Many of GFDC centres are located in the interior and far flung areas of the state primarily providing football training to tribal and economically disadvantaged children. Over 4000 Boys and girls in the age group of 6 to 12 years are imparted grassroots football training by dedicated GFDC coaches at the grass-root centres.

The trainees are also provided with kits every year, and daily nutrition all free of cost.
