It was truly a blockbuster day for Zinc Football when Indian football’s biggest superstar, Sunil Chhetri, made a very special visit to our academy in Zawar on July 27 2019. And what a huge hit it turned out to be!
Our Zinc Football coaches and young footballers had a chance to interact with their hero, before the legend himself stepped onto the turf to teach our boys a trick or two. What better than learning from the very best in the country! He even spent some time at our F-Cube centre and was visibly impressed at the way in which ZInc Football is integrating technology into football coaching.
It got better when Sunil had this to say about our programme: “I have seen a football academy for the first time in Rajasthan and initiatives like Zinc Football, with the kind of world-class infrastructure, will help uplift the cause of Indian Football in the coming years. I wish I had infrastructure and facilities like this during my growing days. Great work, Hindustan Zinc.”
His visit garnered huge interest from all quarters and though since its inception Zinc Football has seen many beautiful moments but this one definitely tops that list.
