Madhu GR, Abdul Naser
The present study try to focus on the development of football in Lakshadweep. Lakshadweep, formerly known as the Laccadive, Minicoy and Aminidivi Islands is a group of islands in the Laccadive Sea, 200 to 440 km (120 to 270 mi) off the southwestern coast of India. The Lakshadweep football team is an Indian football team which represents the union territory of Lakshadweep, India. Football is very common in Lakshadweep, the key restriction for promoting local talented football players is the lack of adequate international standard sports infrastructure facilities such as land, stadium, and coach availability. Besides that all the outdoor sports activities especially football will be stopped during the monsoon season. The Lakshadweep Administration, in partnership with the Lakshadweep Football Association (LFA) and the State Sports Council, is developing steps to resolve the huddles to promote football by setting up a SAI Center in Lakshadweep with recruitment of Coaches to promote football exclusively and bring it to the national and international level.
