Mumbai City FC are elated to announce that the ‘Healthy Goals’ program, in partnership with OSCAR Foundation, is back again for the second consecutive year. Through this initiative, the goal is to use football as a medium to empower healthier lives for the youth of Mumbai.

The aim of this initiative is for Mumbai City FC and OSCAR Foundation to join forces and raise funds to support the development and refurbishment of community football pitches, as well as conducting youth-led football and leadership programmes to uplift the health of local young people.

This unique initiative combines grant funding with community football training for young leaders in Mumbai, who will use football to improve the health of young local Mumbaikars by providing access to quality sports infrastructure. The pitch developed will be used to deliver regular football and life skills sessions and leadership training the youth from underserved communities.

Combining OSCAR Foundation’s experience in fundraising with Mumbai City FC’s presence in the communities of Mumbai, the ‘Healthy Goals’ initiative will raise funds and awareness to amplify the impact.

All funds raised for ‘Healthy Goals’ from now through September 2024 will be allocated to OSCAR Foundation and be matched rupee for rupee*.

The ‘Healthy Goals’ initiative aims to create a lasting impact legacy and will measure its outcomes through participant surveys, coach reports and feedback from communities in Mumbai.


Kandarp Chandra, CEO – Mumbai City FC said:

“At Mumbai City FC, community development is critical to further strengthen our bond with the city of Mumbai. In a city as diverse as ours our community efforts are focused on making a difference, and that is why partnering with a community leader in OSCAR Foundation was important. Through the ‘Healthy Goals’ program, which is in its second year, we aim to continue to deliver programs that lead to healthy communities, grassroots development and sustainable social growth.”


Ashok Rathod, Founder and CEO - OSCAR Foundation said:

“City Football Group and Mumbai City FC are offering our community a life-changing opportunity. OSCAR children in Mumbai live in densely populated communities, in tiny houses with no room to run around and play. The Healthy Goals campaign aims to provide a space for them to flourish. Children deserve the freedom to explore, the opportunity to develop their football and life skills. OSCAR needs a ground where we can come together to teach and learn from each other. This is a campaign which will reshape lives. Let’s seize it!”
