“The way we reacted after Tiri’s injury & won is something to be proud of” - Coach Antonio post #JFCKBFC
Coach Antonio expressed his joy over tonight’s result and what lies ahead.
Tata’s commitment to sports in India Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata envisaged not only Asia's first fully integrated Steel Plant but also the model township of Jamshedpur. He advised his son, Sir Dorab Tata, to earmark "areas for Football, Hockey and Parks…."
Tata Steel's commitment to sports, in fact, preceded the building of the township. The aforesaid letter was written in 1902 and the site for Jamshedpur selected in 1907. J. R. D. Tata gave fruition to J. N. Tata's vision, inculcating sports as an integral part of Tata Steel's corporate philosophy.
Jamshedpur FC were on a winless run since six league matches. Kerala Blasters on the other hand had dismantled Hyderabad and scored an away victory against the league leaders ATK FC. Both teams had to win to keep up any hopes of qualifying for the play-offs.
