    Testimonials

    FC Madras vision is unique and probably the only academy in the country focussed on grassroots training programs for student-athletes. I had the chance to watch a couple of youth games in the U-15 and U-13 categories, and as a national coach, I can vouch for their training and coaching techniques. The coaching staff has designed a well-structured training program inclusive of game time, strength & conditioning, and entertainment for the players. I have immense faith in the management of FC Madras, and their commitment to football in India.

    Former India Player and Head Coach, Indian Arrows
    The cleanliness and tidiness inside the ground and premises definitely prove to be a good resource for the talented and young players who want to train in a High-Performance Football Academy. I as a parent feel FC MADRAS is the greatest hope for developing football players who want to take football for their professional development. Playing and training for 11 a side matches will definitely help these youth I-league players improve their endurance and vision for a 90-minute match.

    Kalyananthy Satchithanantham

    Parent of a U-13 Student at FC Madras
    Having witnessed the myriad bumpy footballing surfaces around the city with serious space limitations, FC Madras arena is a dream come true for footballers. Coaching (and managing) is incredibly important for kids in their early-mid teens and it is here that I’ve seen the biggest change in the last few months. I love when my son is eager to talk about how his training session went and that is pretty much every day now. The academy coaches for sportsmanship, beyond the game and this has a positive impact on children outside the football ground and I can already see signs of it with my son.
