ANI  |  Pune [India] 

Indian Super League franchise FC City has announced a strategic alliance with Mizoram's Chanmari Football Club, which is based in Aizawl and takes part in the League.

The partnership will entail close co-operation between the first teams, academies, youth development, training support and scouting projects. However, the most significant aspect of the arrangement would be the opportunity for Chanmari FC players to represent FC City at some stage in their careers.

As a part of the association, FC City will help the Aizawl-based club build a youth structure providing them with coaches and training equipments. This partnership will enable Chanmari FC to set up youth teams and thereby benefit local players to train from a young age in a professional environment.

"I truly see this as a historic step in our short journey of three years. We are committed towards development of youth football at all levels." said Gaurav Modwel, CEO of FC Pune City.

"We put great value in partnerships like this and we look forward to committing our resources to develop and foster an environment where we and Chanmari FC can work together for the greater good of football," he further added.

"We have been committed to growing the game and developing young players in Mizoram for the last six years and we see this as the next step in continuing that growth both for the youth players of Chanmari as well as that of the state of Mizoram. We thank FC Pune City for showing faith in our football club and look forward to a long a successful partnership together", said Andrew
