“FC Goa would like to communicate that the club continues to keep its community initiatives active at the Salvador do Mundo Panchayat Ground with coaching for the U14 and U18 teams of Sporting Club of Porvorim and Grassroots festivals being conducted at the premises at no cost to the participants. The club continues to also look after the ground maintenance as per the terms of our MoU with the Panchayat.

“The Club had temporarily moved its first team activities away from the ground for the past week fearing a possible breach in bio-bubble protocols. At the current time, FC Goa would like to further convey that the First Team will be returning to Salvador Do Mundo Panchayat Ground with assurances of police protection now in place should the need arise to protect against a bio bubble breach,” FC Goa statement read.

The ground has been used by FC Goa as their base of operations and apart from first team training, academy teams like their U-14 and U-18 teams also train at the same venue. With so much talk around the country regarding grassroots initiatives, this news comes as a breath of fresh air.

The team had to shift their base to a different ground which had forced the team to travel for a longer duration in order to reach the new ground.
