Marking 10 years of change!

December: 11,12 ad 13

At:The Bangalore Football Stadium

It is that time of the year! We have been organising The Parikrma Champions League for years, breaking stereotypes and creating a level playing field for children from various backgrounds to celebrate football together. What started as a school football tournament is now recognised by the Karnataka State Football Association and All India Football Federation as one of the best Under-16 football tournaments in the country. Sixteen teams from all over India will battle it for the Equality Cup™.

Every year, PCL is conducted at one of the best stadiums, with the best facilities, such as artificial turf, a players’ tunnel and an electronic scoreboard. The tournament always attracts star players and corporate leaders as guests. The players are provided with proper nutrition and healthcare facilities (including an ambulance at venues on all three days).

Many years have passed, and we are proud to share with you positivetransformation stories (from the recent past) that reaffirm our belief and efforts in this movement: 

  • The Parikrma Girls Football club has grown tremendously. This year, we have had girls from the remotest parts of India join the Club. 
  • Many of our alums have registered and obtained admissions to colleges offering sports management, and a few are training to be a coach.
  • A few alumni have started a sports management company called Rapt Sports, and another, having received their B and C certification, has started the Sports Academy in Bengaluru.  
  • Our alum, Mairaba ( taekwondo champion and footballer), has started a fitness studio in the city.
