FC Madras is a premier youth football club focussing on football development from the grassroots. We have a world class football academy with Elite Category accreditation from AIFF. Nestled in the picturesque coastal town of Mahabalipuram, Chennai (South India), we provide education, high-performance training, and recreational activities at our world-class residential facility. Our elite athlete program is a scholarship initiative, aimed at discovering the ‘Messi from Madras’.


Established in 2018, FC Madras is dedicated to nurturing young talent at the grassroots level. In the 2018-2019 season, our U-13 and U-15 teams clinched the championship titles in the Chennai zone of the I-League junior divisions. This success was followed by the inauguration of ‘The FC Madras Arena,’ our state-of-the-art home pitch, which was the sole FIFA-standard artificial turf in Tamil Nadu at the time.

Over the past five years, we have achieved notable victories against prominent clubs both locally and nationally. Graduates from our high-performance program have transitioned to represent various professional clubs, a testament to the quality of training and development offered at FC Madras.
