Kozhikode Football League – Who is your favorite?

Posted in Arsenal, English Premier League, Football, India, Kerala, soccer, sports by clash on July 9, 2008

If you did not know, Kozhikode has its own football league – KDFA – “Videocon” Kozhikode District Football League. Hardly will anyone be knowing the teams which play in this league. Each game attracts 100’s of spectators, some players have been picked by professional teams. As such after Olympian Rahman, there has not emerged any spectacluar players form this town. Still there is a lot of enthusisatic football fans here. If any of them, drop by, do cast your vote for your favorite team and do drop in bits and pieces of information about the league and football in general in Kozhikode. The last biggest thing happened in this town for football was that Arsenal were down to conduct some trials for kids and i am hearing that Nokia is going to sponsor a tournament here… I am eager to gather know something about this.

Lets not forget Sevens football here, I know some Tournaments that happen in Nellur (near Feroke), Zamorins High School, Cheruvannur (Panchayat ground!) and so on. If you people are willing do enlighten me about the sevens scene also… you can vey well go ahead.

it will be apprecieated, if people could leave a comment, so as to know who supports whom.

    They are the worst in their group last season but on pure marketing sense, i suppose they have a good “name” that could be capitalised, if somone plans to invest there a bit of money. (these are all rosy dreams!)

    2 mystery votes till now.. other than Mr.Bob, who was quite confirmed about nellikode! 3 cheers to the “medical college route”!!

  6. […] There is already a good football league happening in Kozhikode, Videocon were the sponsors last time…. They have A, B, C, D division leagues with around 10 teams in each division and that is a hell lot of football when we compare the infleunce of football as a game in India.  I hope this touted international tournament helps kozhikode raise its profile once again in the footballing map of india and attract tournaments like AFC challenge Cup to this city. I am very sure there would have been good crowd response in this town, if AFC challenge cup had happened here. […]

    AS A SPECTATOR OF KDFA LEAGUE MORE THAN 25 YEARS, I WILL DEFINITLY SAY THE UNIVERSITY STAR STUDDED FAROOQ COLLEGE WHO ENJOYING MASS SUPPORT(90%) FROM THE FOOTBALL LOVERS OF CITY.

    FAROOQ COLLEGE PLAYING IN “A” DIVISION COUNTINUOUSLY MORE THAN 25 YEARS AND THEIR SPLENDID DISPLAY ATTRACT THE FANS. AND ALWAYS THEY ENTER IN LAST FOUR.

    I CHALLENGE EVERYBODY COME AND SEE THEIR PLAY AND WHY THEY ENJOY THE SUPPORT FROM THE GALLERY.

    Well, these are interesting thoughts. I think they are true. However, everything is
    relative and ambiguous to my mind.

    ok people. Chandini FC is now in Bangalore playing 2nd div i-league qualifiers.

    met some players and a manager.

    have to say that it is difficult for clubs like chandini.
