The Football Academy at Anantapur Sports Village (ASV) was started in 2010. It is a residential academy that supports a total of 69 boys playing at U-11, U-13, U-15 & U-18 age groups. The athletes are selected from the Mandal Football Clubs and Development Centres, through a structured Talent ID program developed by RDT.
The entire program is supported by RDT, where all athletes are provided with the necessary support for their development. The athletes are provided with a full nutrition program, incorporating all three daily meals as well as additional diet aligned to their training needs, as well as educational support with free of cost access to partner schools and colleges.
Spanish clubs FC Sant Vicenti and FC Sant Cugat hold annual coaching camps for all athletes’ part of the ASV Academy, as well as children from the grassroot and development centres.
