An invitation to join us, why?

LIFE, IN ALL ITS VARYING ASPECTS, has never been kind to our players or their families; so we’ve never been able to charge the boys or their parents for us to provide any kit, balls, training equipment, travel expenses or pay our coaches. The founders & a few good friends, like Dr. Shashi Tharoor M.P. have found the money, somehow, to enable us to survive for 10 years. Now, it seems better things will be coming our way. So, I know you’ll understand why we are seeking donations and sponsorship commitments to allow us to provide all the necessary things to keep our teams growing and get our 1st X1 an entry, if the AIFF willing, into the brand new LEAGUE 2 that has been created this year.

THE CONCEPT

A noble desire to keep the boys from impoverished families off the beaches and allied antisocial activities, brought a novel idea to Ebin Rose and Sam Geevarghese, two state football players. They started kicking the ball with the boys on the beaches, teaching them the game techniques. There they met a British tourist, Tony Langham, an expert in the British Football Clubs administration.

And the Kovalam Football Club was born.

The ‘beach boys’ started winning competitive tournaments all over India: Senior Division, U-18, U-16 and U-14.
