Kohli lauds Forca Goa Foundation’s “Field of Dreams” project

February 22, 2023

Virat Kohli, Team India cricketer and co-owner of the Indian Super League’s FC Goa, has voiced his support for the Forca Goa Foundation (FGF) and Delta Corp’s “Fields of Dreams” project. 

With the aim to kick-start India’s biggest grassroots-level football revolution, the FGF—FC Goa’s community wing—launched the “Field of Dreams” project in association with Delta Corp Limited earlier this month.

Speaking about the project, Kohli commented:

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 [New] 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. 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.

Under the “Fields of Dreams” project, the FGF is committed to enhancing the lives of children and communities in the country, starting with Goa with the financial support of Delta Corp.

The project also aims to bridge the gap in grassroots football development by making state-of-the-art football grounds accessible to all. This one-of-a-kind initiative looks to redefine what grassroots football can do for Goa and, eventually, India by creating spaces where the local community can truly be uplifted and have access to opportunities previously unavailable to them. The revamped football grounds are equipped with a state-of-the-art playing surface with sand bases, efficient drainage, sprinkling systems and other necessary infrastructure.

Delta Corp, one of India’s leading gaming and hospitality companies, is dedicated to uplifting the sports culture in India and Goa with the launch of the “Field of Dreams” project. Through this project, the sports infrastructure will be further strengthened to benefit local communities, providing them with improved sports facilities and opportunities.
