About the tie-up

Aspiring youth footballers in India will now have the opportunity to be trained by one of the world's best youth development programs created by the European and Spanish Champion football club, FCBarcelona.

FCBarcelona have tied up with Conscient Football and have launched their entry into India through their trademark FCBarcelona Soccer Camps. The first of the week long camps were held in early 2012 in the NCR, offering world-class training under the same successful methodology that has produced leading football stars like Gerard Pique and Victor Valdes.

Later on, these camps were conducted across various cities in India like Bangalore, Jaipur, Pune, Vadodara, and will be followed by several others in the coming year.

Last year, the FCBarcelona Soccer Camps were held in more than 22 cities across the world and were attended by 20,000 young footballers. The training offers the participants a chance to live and experience the FCBarcelona way for a week under the expert guidance of their coaches. Scientifically developed, the training program is divided into three segments - Introduction, Pre-Training, and Training for children in the age groups of 6 - 17 years. These camps serve as a major stepping-stone for the participants who wish to move to more serious training.

For the India Camps, the FCBEscola Technical Team had travelled from Spain to oversee preparation and execution for all Camps hosted in the country. It provided youth with access to the highest levels of football training and development and was be open to all interested on a first come first serve basis.


FCBarcelona was founded in 1899 and is now one of the most popular and supported football clubs in the world with 173,071 members spreading across the globe. The club prides itself on its ability to form players with dedication, patience and effort as opposed to buying them. This methodology has proven to be successful as FCBarcelona has achieved more titles than most clubs in the world, including a record 6 championships during the 2008-2009 season.





Conscient Football is a grassroots development initiative undertaken by the Conscient Group with The Heritage School network in Delhi NCR; the latter being a part of its venture in the educational sector, as an extension of its wider portfolio.

Conscient Football currently executes leagues, camps, coaching courses and exposure trips with the core objective of the development of the individual and the sport of football in India. Conscient Football recently entered into a 3 year MOU with the All India Football Federation (AIFF) establishing a clear pathway for youth aspiring to represent India nationally while also providing AIFF with access to Conscient's quality football infrastructure for training purposes.
