A Memorandum of Understanding, or MoU, was signed by the All India Football Federation, the Ministry of Education, and FIFA during the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2022 final in India to expand football in the nation’s schools through the Football for Schools programme.
In order to launch Football for Schools across India and reach 25 million schoolchildren nationwide, President Gianni Infantino of FIFA signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Education, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship of the Republic of India and the All India Football Federation (AIFF).
This project has now been warmly welcomed in India since it is in keeping with the 2020 National Education Policy, which aims to encourage sports-integrated learning. I firmly believe in India’s potential, Infantino declared prior to signing the Memorandum of Understanding. India is a fantastic country and a continent unto itself, with many talents, not just in football of course. The heart and enthusiasm of the nation are what matter most. That is important in football.
Accepting this project will be a step in the right direction toward fostering a culture of athletics among young people, assisting in the development of abilities among Indian students, and keeping them fit and healthy throughout their academic careers.
By establishing Football for Schools across India, the three parties committed to working together to maximise the value of education. They will use football’s strength and appeal to all people as a motivating force for children to engage in physical education, become active and healthy adults, and promote gender equality. They will also use football to foster peace, unity, and social integration.
An ambitious programme called Football for Schools seeks to educate, develop, and empower millions of young people around the world. By introducing football-related activities into the curriculum, in collaboration with the necessary authorities and stakeholders, it aims to increase access to football for both boys and girls around the world.
