FC Barcelona plans to start a soccer school in India. With this initiative the country is surely going to experience a new chapter of sports education in India.
FC Barcelona is one of the most prolific clubs in European football. Spanish giant FC Barcelona has announced the launch of its official football school FCBEscola in India, with the first centre slated to come up in Delhi NCR. It’s being set up in association with Conscient Football, FC Barcelona’s partner in India.
While there is no confirmation of the proposed timeline of operations, the school will certainly be in operation within this calendar year, according to a Conscient Football spokesperson.
The school will have a capacity of 300-360 players in the age group of 6-14 and will have permanent FC Barcelona staff stationed in the Capital to run the operations. While the details are being worked out, the program is expected to be based on the globally-run programs by FCBEscola, which are intensive and regular after-school programs.
