Pratik Shinde’s dream facing financial obstacle.


We had reported to you an almost-fairytale-like story of a Mumbai lad named Pratik Shinde who got a chance to play for the Pirate SC in US Soccer League.  But his dream is about to be shattered because of financial obstacle. We have learnt that he is unable to buy his ticket for Houston where he is supposed to join the team in April. The team manager Mr. Brendan Keyes has promised to fund his stay, food and education in Houston. But he is unable to finance Pratik’s travel. Pratik has asked our website to request all our readers and Indian football followers to help him out of this problem. If you wish to make any contributions towards the fulfillment of his dream, kindly contact us at the following email addresses-
