The Voyage to Subroto Cup
Football has genuinely moved to the forefront of fitness activities undertaken by the youth of our country and Subroto Cup provides a platform, well, a playing field, to the budding footballers of our nation to exhibit their talent at the hugely admired game. Ever since its inception in 1960, the cup has witnessed an upsurge in the number of participating schools (adding ours to the list this year!!).
