Kohima, Oct. 5 (EMN): In an effort to broaden its scale and scope in the field of football, Dimapur Football Club recently signed a MoU with Kasetsart Football Club at Bangkok in Thailand.

Stephen Moalung Sanglir represented Dimapur FC in signing the MoU alongside Suthep Wongruen, president of Kasetsart FC at Bangkok.

With the MoU, Dimapur FC aims to collaborate and receive consultation from the Thai based football club and its partners.

According to information provided to Eastern Mirror by Dimapur FC on October 5, the agreement will also provide for an exchange programme for promising Naga footballers in the future.

“We plan to work alongside our state and national football associations, as well as our domestic and overseas partners to run youth tournaments and training clinics for the youth in order to finally provide a foundation for Naga footballers to reach their potential,” it informed.

The club stated that Kasetsart FC is a forward-thinking football club in Bangkok, which takes keen interest in development of youth football and considered as one of the most well-established clubs in Thailand.

Kastersart FC currently competes in Thai League 2 and among others have a partnership agreement with Real Betis in Spain’s La Liga.

Dimapur FC, a registered club under the Nagaland Football Association, has its objective shifted towards the development of youth football, and creating a solid foundation for upcoming talents and aspiring players.

In looking at the current state of football in Nagaland, the committee realised that this objective would not be possible by just competing in a string of local and village tournaments, no matter how attractive the cash prize.

This approach was found to be very short-sighted and actually hindering the development of youth players rather than promoting it, as the winner of these tournaments were often determined by which club could procure the services of older, established players.

During the lockdown, the club utilised their time in quarantine to plan and lay the foundations for the football development project it envisioned.

As such, the club met with Kasetsart FC in Bangkok recently to fulfil its project and further its aims and objectives.
