Shared this for a friend. Celtic FC have partnership clubs all over the World and this is the first from India. Any decent players from there may get a chance of a lifetime at Celtic FC.
CELTIC are delighted to welcome our first ever club from India, Salgaocar FC, into the Celtic Club Partnership Programme. The partnership saw coaching staff travel to Goa last week to work with the I-League club’s first-team, Academy players and reach out into the local community. Celtic’s historical connection with India stretches back to 1936 with the signing of Mohammed Salim who was the first player from the Indian sub-continent to play for a European club.
More recently, the club has had huge success in India through a three-year partnership with The Mahindra Group with over 3,000 young footballers being trained by Celtic coaches across India. Following this success, Celtic has been looking at ways it can build on this success by collaborating with partners who share our philosophy and passion for footballing excellence and community engagement.
The Celtic Club Partnership programme has over 50 clubs in 15 countries all sharing in the Club’s expertise in developing top class footballers. Club partners enjoy exclusive monthly coaching content, coaching camps at their own club, training tours to Celtic, access to the International Coaches’ Convention and a host of other benefits aimed at sharing our expertise to help develop their club.
Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: “The Celtic International Club Partnership Programme is a very exciting programme for the Club and we are delighted to welcome Salgaocar FC to be part of it and to the Celtic family.
“Celtic’s connection with India has been longstanding, however this is the first time we have developed a relationship with another professional club in this region. We are excited to see what can be developed from this unique relationship.” Mr. Shivanand V. Salgaocar, President, Salgaocar Football Club added: “We at Salgaocar FC are delighted to be closely associated with Celtic FC. At the heart of this relationship is a shared philosophy that is devoted to the promotion and development of young, local talent. This is the beginning of what we hope to be a longstanding and highly fruitful association.”
