To identify football talent from across South India
Thamizhan FC has, in a glittering function in Hotel Savera, unveiled its ambitious programme to scout young football talent from across South India and also formally launched their logo. Sharing the details, Mr. Imran Khan, Founder of the Club said that they are now looking for young boys in the 10 – 18 age group, passionate about developing into full-fledged professional footballers for the Club as well as women players in the 16 to 23 age group for the Senior Women’s team.
The selected players will be availing a residential academy in Neyveli and Chennai where they can pursue their studies as well as realize their professional footballing ambitions, with the best talent from the Club getting a chance to play for the state, country, and international clubs. The Scouting for players is scheduled to begin on 10th May 2019 and conclude on 6th June 2019. The Indian Professional Football players Dharmaraj Ravanan, Pradeep Mohanraj and Nandha Kumar graced the occasion.
They were of the unanimous opinion that efforts like this, which were missing in their early days of building their career, will go a long way in developing the talent, along the lines of talent scouting and building in the EPL and other such premier Football Leagues. Actor Kasthuri and Shariq Hassan, guests of honor from the film industry, also lauded this excellent initiative which will help to instill professional football in South India and in Tamil Nadu in particular.
