Gameday Academy is proud to announce that we will be the first-ever Indian football Academy to be closely associated with one of Brazil’s top football clubs – Cruzeiro from Belo Horizonte, which will give our children the chance to train and play the beautiful game, the beautiful way.
4-time winners of the Copa Libertadores and the only Brazilian team to win the domestic treble, Cruzeiro has held a longstanding tradition of breeding some of Brazil’s finest talents like Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Maicon and several other World Cup winners for the most successful football nation. With our partnership with Cruzeiro,a Gameday Academy player will get the chance to train and experience what it’s like to be an Academy player at one of Brazil’s most famous footballing institutions.
Cruzeiro’s training facility for academy students - Toca Da Raposa 1 is considered to be a benchmark of footballing infrastructure in Brazil, so much so that these facilities have often been used for training camps of the Brazilian national team. Gameday Academy students will get the opportunity to train and attend sessions at Toca da Raposa for a 10-day period, as well as learn from some of the most experienced junior coaches in Brazil. Our partnership also allows for these coaches to come to Bangalore and undertake training camps to develop talented and expressive footballers right here, in our city.
