Mumbai, May 28 (IANS): LaLiga Football Schools will see direct involvement from three clubs — Sevilla FC, Real Betis and Celta de Vigo — as they will adopt projects in Pune (Turf Up), Bangalore (Tiento) and Noida (Pathways School), a statement said.

The association will include the involvement of the clubs in the organisation of training programmes for the coaches, training kits of the participating students and more engagement opportunities for the students like giveaways and merchandising.

The LaLiga Football Schools programme was launched in India in 2018 with the aim of grassroots development of the sport in the country. Top LaLiga clubs are now joining hands with LaLiga and investing into the future talent in this country by hosting select LaLiga Football Schools programmes in three cities in India.

The project, with 30+ centres across 14 cities in India, has seen participation from over 10,000 Indian students so far.

LaLiga recently announced the LaLiga Football Schools Scholarship, the winners of which would get an opportunity to train in Spain.

This year, four students will be training with LaLiga club, CD Leganes for two weeks as a part of this initiative.
