Premier AIFF-FIFA Indian football academy to get Chelsea expertise


The IMG-Reliance is in talks with Chelsea honchos to get them as partners for the upcoming premier AIFF-FIFA academy in Vadodara (Baroda). Reliance boss Mr. Mukesh Ambani recently visited London to meet Chelsea FC CEO Mr. Roy Gourlay as per an ET report.

Chelsea FC are the current UEFA Champions League champions and are one of the top English Premier League teams. Chelsea had, apparently, wanted to partner Reliance to sponsor their team which was rejected by the Reliance group. The partnership on the AIFF-FIFA academy, however, may turn into reality.

Mr. Roy Gourlay will be visiting India in December 2012 for the second round of talks regarding the matter.
