The Tata Ideal-Sports a way of life
Sports have always been a priority within the corporate philosophy of Tata Steel. It is
part of this very same commitment that made Tata Steel set up the Tata Steel Sports
Foundation, to inculcate among the young men and women of India the sporting spirit, the
zeal to excel, to win, and above all the discipline and dedication that brings out the
winner in the individual. The Tata Football Academy, conceived in 1983 and inaugurated in
1987, is but one intrinsic component of the Tata Ideal manifested in reality.
The objective of Tata Football Academy is to nurture and train budding footballers in the most scientific way with the sole purpose of improving the standard of Indian Football and be a nursery for producing outstanding players for the Indian National Team.
