History

The thought for the need of a state of the art football training center, that can fulfill the dreams and goals of upcoming, ambitious football players, came into the minds of two very close friends Niyaz rahman and Prasad V haridasan, who were students from Zamorin’s Guruvayoorappan College, Calicut. Both of them obtained training from former national football coach, Prof. V.A. Narayana Menon. They had faced a lot of difficulties in football training during their childhood, due to the absence of apparent training center for football and realized that such a center is essential for the impending young football players.When discussed the matter, Prof. Narayana Menon, gave valuable advises and helped them to set a training center for football in Calicut. He also promised to be a Technical advisor of the center and still enjoys his role. Thus, in 2012, remarked the birth of KFTC , at Malaparamba, Calicut, with an emphasis to provide state of the art training for football players of any age, and to augment community development through football. ‘Love Football for better health’ is the moto of KFTC.
