Special StoriesKings of Rajasthan

Our Zinc Football Academy footballers have earned the honour to represent Rajasthan at the Under-14 Subroto Cup to be held later in August. Conducted by the Indian Air Force, with support from India’s Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Subroto Cup Football Tournament is the most famous inter-school football tournament in India, started back in 1960.

In their quest to become Rajasthan’s best, our boys competed against 11 of the best school teams from the state in the Under-14 Subroto Cup Qualifiers held from 21-23rd July at Zawar Stadium.

Our boys scored a mammoth 45 goals in just 4 matches without conceding even a single goal. 13-years-old Janminthang Haokip was the player of the tournament scoring 12 goals including 4 in the final against Nirja Modi School, Jaipur.

With this coming in the wake of our Under-17 boys having already claimed the top spot in the U17 Subroto Cup Qualifiers back in May, makes this victory even sweeter.
