Tata Steel successfully bid for the Jamshedpur franchise in the upcoming season of the coveted Indian Super League (ISL). The steel giant, which has been a pioneer in the development of sports in India, won the bid with Jamshedpur as the host city and will be part of ISL from the next season by the name Jamshedpur Football Club.

The club will be playing their home matches at the iconic JRD Tata Sports Complex. The team will be under the guidance of head coach Steve Coppell in the 2017-18 Indian Super League season.
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.

Under JRD Tata’s stewardship Tata Steel introduced world class football to India through the famous Super Soccer series. Some of the top clubs of Europe and South America played against India’s best.

The academy has many accolades to its credit and has produced 137 players who have gone on to represent the Indian national team.
Keeping to its commitment to develop sports from the ground-up, Tata also hosts the annual community football cup where over 25,000 locals participate.
