Bruno, Vijayan and others to play in

MUMBAI: Former India internationals will participate in a ‘Legends’ Match’ at Tilak Maidan in Goa on Saturday to support elder sportspersons.

Vedanta in collaboration with Association for the Wellbeing of Elder Sportspersons (AWES) is organising the highly anticipated match before the AWES Cup final in Vasco, Goa.

“I thank Vedanta Sesa Goa for coming forward and supporting AWES in our efforts to bring respect and dignity to the elderly sportspersons,” said AWES President Avertano Furtado.

The company’s commitment to develop the sport is reflected in setting up of Sesa Football Academy, the women’s league and the grassroots programme.

50 ex-players would take the field along with Brahmanand Sankhwalkar, Bruno Coutinho, Francis D’Souza, Savio Medeira and Armando Colaco.

IM Vijayan and Renedy Singh would be showing their support to the cause by playing on either side.
