Don Bosco FA From India Gets 2nd Place

Don Bosco Football Academy Finishes 2nd in Kerala League


The women’s soccer team of Don Bosco Football Academy of India gets second place in the recently finished Kerala Women’s League. The Kerala Football Association organizes the 3-year old league. For this season, six semi-professional clubs participated in the tournament, and it’s the first time Don Bosco Football Academy joined in.

Don Bosco FA lost to the eventual champions Gokulam Kerala FC, but the 1st runner up award is the best finish for their women’s football team so far. The future is bright for Don Bosco FA, and they’ll look to come back stronger for the next season. Don Bosco FA’s goalie Keerthana won the tournament’s Best Goalkeeper award. The rest of the individual awards went to the championship team.

Unlike other semi-professional football clubs, Don Bosco FA is composed of scholars who will eventually graduate from the institution. Their lineup gets altered every year, and it isn’t easy to maintain team chemistry with an ever-changing roster.

The league was held in Thrissur, a city in Kerala State, and matches were all played in a single stadium. The tournament also featured a celebrity exhibition game to add more festivity. Bollywood actresses Malavika Jayaram and Rima Kallingal participated in the celebrity exhibition game with other local celebrities.

The Don Bosco Football Academy is an institution that helps kids improve their football skills. The school hires ex-football pros, football coaches, trainers and the likes to mentor the kids, develop their game and, most importantly, fall in love with the sport. The facilitators also let kids engage in technical training as an advanced course when they move past the basic program. If your child is an aspiring professional football player, this institution is the perfect foundation.

Don Bosco FA regularly joins different football tournaments in and around Kerala. They have a 2-star accreditation from the All India Football Federation, which means Don Bosco teams qualify as semi-professional clubs whenever they join tournaments. Salesian missionaries founded the institution to promote team sports to the youth by honing their skills at a young age. Don Bosco uses socio-sports education as their platform to maintain balance in teaching academics, social skills, and football.
