Parikrma Football Club
The birth of Parikrma FC
A football club for the alumni and owned by Parikrma, the Parikrma FC is a testimony of our children’s passion and respect for the sport. This club was born in 2013, when Parikrma Foundation provided a platform for talented footballers both students, alumni and staff to take their passion a step further. Parikrma FC started as a Bangalore Division C team, and is an A Division team today!
