It is a delight to be introducing the Club publicly in its new avatar!
Dempo Sports Club continues to score high on whatever that it does, fully in spirit with what its birth over 50 years ago! My visionary grandfather, the late Vasantrao S Dempo, supported by his brother, the late Vaikunthrao S. Dempo, brought the Club into being and nurtured it, with his son, the late Vasudeva V. Dempo strengthening the Club in its runaway record of soccer success, a record peerless enough to win practically each significant football tournament across the country, even venturing beyond Indian shores!
My time as club patron has included DEMPO winning the Indian National League five times, a tribute to its fans, players, officials and managers! Last year was even more special for us – we kicked off a lavish golden jubilee celebration that honoured all its stars, both on and off the field.
Our senior team is a fighting-fit outfit, a force to reckon with in Goa and bracing itself for bigger things!
DEMPO have the ambitious passion, already on-stream, of grassroots development, by which we develop football from scratch, in the interior, picking up youthful talent straight off the field. We also have developed the beginning of a long-term, professional programme of player development through an academy, open at the moment to Goan boys, thirteen onwards, but soon to be thrown open to talented youths across India, who would train to excel in football while doing the same at their studies!
What with programmes of community service that is entirely in the DEMPO mould, Dempo Sports Club promises to be a significant stakeholder among the Indian footballing heavyweights!
