SFA was named Official Partner of the Indian Olympic Team.

Sports For All (SFA) was named Official Partner of the Indian Olympic contingent for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by the Indian Olympic Association on Thursday.

We are very excited to have SFA as our Official Sports EdTech Partner. SFA, with its technology driven platform and mega-scale, on-ground multi-sport competitions at school and college level, will empower and enable our children and youth to pursue their best sporting potential and thereby, fuel India’s Olympic dreams.

Shri Rajeev Mehta, Secretary General of the IOA, stated

Our association with IOA and Team India is strongly rooted in our belief that by providing the children of India with the finest sporting platform at the earliest stages of their sporting journey, we can fuel their progress towards representing and taking India to the top of the global sporting map in the years to come.

Rishikesh Joshi and Vishwas Choksi, founders of SFA in 2015 mentioned.

SFA has developed a fully integrated phygital (combo of online and on-ground) platform that allows for on-ground tournaments as well as technology-assisted sports teaching. This assists in identifying, nurturing, and empowering athletes across 30 sports disciplines with the appropriate set of experiences and resources.

Every child picks up a sport at a young age. Whether she does this to have fun, learn life skills, be fit or with aspirations to represent India, SFA will be there to facilitate and catalyse their journey. With technology as our backbone, we are making multi-sport training and on-ground competitions affordable and accessible to all.

Vishwas Choksi told IANS.

India has the potential to be a global sporting superpower. We need to build a strong ecosystem to enable sports to become a viable career option. Our platform will enable coaches and academies to connect with children who want to learn any sport. This will create the foundation for our future champions in a systematic and strategic manner.

Rishikesh Joshi, who himself is a former national level swimmer added. 

SFA's continued commitment to the 2022 Commonwealth Games and the 2022 Asian Games, in addition to the Tokyo Olympics, strengthens the cooperation.
