Generally a "About Me" would feature the name of one man but not here at ABCDFOOTBALL. Here, we have a small team or should we say a family, who are a part of ABCDFOOTBALL and try to give their best efforts for the development of the site one way or the other and in-turn providing helping hands for spreading the word "Indian Football". We work as a family and try to contribute whatever way we can. To be honest, neither of us are professionals at what we are doing and could not give our full dedication for the site but we try to make sure that we provide you with the information on Indian Football which will keep you updated.



Lets have a look who are the ones behind the words www.abcdfootball.com.

Few words from myself:

Football being a global sport and dubbed as 'The most popular sports' in the World by many, its really hard to believe how India with such large population and talent pool lags enormously behind in the world stage. One can blame Cricket for that, but to be very frank, "Football" the name itself a marketing product and it starts from us. If we provide it able support then the day is not far when India goes up the ladder of world football, and you never know, we could see India could be rubbing shoulders with world renowned names. But it all depends on how the steps are taken at the administrative end, because I am a firm believer that "Start from the Root, the Tree will bear fruit". So from our end we are trying to do our bit, by starting and managing the site! Are you playing your part?
