Sports For All to invest Rs 12.5 crores to promote Khelo India mission

New Delhi, Jan 30 (UNI) Sports For All (SFA) will bolster Khelo India Youth Games (KIYG) mission by strengthening sports culture at the grass-root level as it joins the sporting revolution as a powered by sponsor for the next five years.

Having overseen immense success through our innovative technology-based approach over the years across numerous multi-sport grassroots championships, SFA is delighted to come on board as the Powered by Sponsor for Khelo India and reinforce country's sporting canvas as a pipeline and nurturer of the KIYG mission – reviving the sports culture in India at the grass-root level.

“SAI is happy to have Sports for All (SFA) as a Powered by sponsor of KIYG2022. SFA's work in sports, aligns with the larger vision of the government to identify and nurture grassroot level sporting talent. Khelo India Youth Games being the largest platform for multisport competition for young athletes in the country is the right platform for this association.” said a Sports Authority of India (SAI) spokesperson.

SFA also aims to reach 20 states and 15 lakh children in the next three years through the SFA Championships.
In the past, SFA has powered the digital and tech experience at the National Games 2022 and Khelo India Youth Games 2021, managing it completely end-to-end, and they themselves have organised 12 SFA Grassroots Championships as a testament to their commitment to empower sports at the grassroot level and creating a culture that promotes as well as encourages participation and revamps infrastructure and nurtures talent to turn them into future sporting stars.
