AFC Pro Diploma Module 1 to begin on May 10 in Chandigarh

The All India Football Federation is all set to host the AFC Pro Diploma Module 1 coaching course in Chandigarh this month, after a gap of six years.

The course that is set to take place from May 10 to 19, will see as many as 18 coaches take part in it. They will be instructed by coach educator Kim Poulsen, who is currently the head coach of the Tanzania National Team, with AIFF Interim Technical Director and Director of Coach Education Savio Madeira.

With 18 participants, who have already been largely involved in the Indian Football ecosystem over the years set to take part in the course this time, the number of Pro Licensed coaches in the country is also set to increase.
