On Friday, Virat Kohli is an Indian international cricketer. He is the former national team captain. He is also the co-owner of FC Goa. It is the famed Indian Super League football club. He expressed his support for Forca Goa Foundation (FGF) and Delta Corp’s ‘Fields of Dreams’ initiative.

With the goal of igniting India’s largest grassroots-level football revolution, the Forca Goa Foundation, the community wing of FC Goa, launched the ‘Field of Dreams’ project earlier this month in collaboration with Delta Corp Limited.

Virat Kohli’s thoughts

Virat Kohli stated of the project’s inception,

“Six years ago, the Forca Goa Foundation started working in grassroots football in India. The Foundation started a revolution by investing in pitches across the state of Goa, to keep the dreams of young kids alive. Infrastructure and access is one of the key pillars for any sport to develop and for a nation to be world-class in that sport.”

“As I grew up in Delhi, I had to deal with challenges such as the lack of access to the best facilities. I was at least privileged enough to play at my coaching centre, but I also saw that many kids around me didn’t have the same opportunity. However, the lack of access and opportunities is what kills a young sportsperson’s dreams. They say, ‘In dreams, we plant the seeds of our future.’ I’m very proud of our club, FC Goa and the Forca Goa Foundation for launching the ‘Fields of Dreams’ project. We thank everyone for supporting this great initiative”,

he continued.

Moreover, this one-of-a-kind program aims to reimagine what grassroots football can achieve for Goa and India. Thus, establish venues to increase the local population’s access to opportunities.

The renovated football fields have cutting-edge sand-base playing surfaces, effective drainage and sprinkling systems, and other required infrastructure. However, Delta Corp is one of India’s major gaming and hospitality corporations.

Moreover, they have launched the ‘Field of Dreams’ project to promote sports culture in India and Goa. This project will develop the sports infrastructure to assist local people by offering better sports facilities and opportunities.
