Ten-Second Takeaway

With an academy, tournaments for all ages and match screeenings, Footieculture goes all out to promote football in the city.

Kicking Off

While the city has its share of football fans, groups and arenas for the game, Footieculture hopes to kick it up a notch and develop the culture of football here {before expanding to other cities}. A city-based startup by five school-days friends and engineers, the group is headed by Preetham Chandra. Driven by their passion for the game {they are amateur football players as well}, they decided to build a community of footballers in the city.

Starting off with match screenings {which wasn’t too common three years ago, particularly for football} and later moving on to organise tournaments, the group promises something for every football fan between the ages five to 60. They also own the football club, Rebels FC.

Best Foot Forward

Want to team up with your friends or colleagues and have a fun game? Contact Footieculture and they’ll happily organise a match for your group. Their initiatives also include open, corporate {called Foot & Tie} and inter-school tournaments. We particularly love that they encourage women players to participate, with even all-women teams as part of their matches! Look out for Footie Nights, their regular match screening events.

With four centres in the city, their academy — RFC Football Academy — is exclusively for children aged 6 to 16. Footieculture also ties up with universities to provide guidance for students who are keen on pursuing the game. Plus, basic and advanced level sports camps, called Footiecamps, conducted every now and then.
