“This is for the first time we are opening a clinic at Vadodara and in the whole Gujarat. We focus on Tier 2 and 3 cities to identity the talent and give them world class coaching to compete at the top level. We partnered with VCA for the clinic session and try to identity them in the camp.

We are also in process to prepare a 11 players team consists of world class players who will be with us and share their expertise with the players of the academy,” said Rao.
