In a meeting, chaired by club Owner John Abraham a couple of days back, NEUFC invited the Heads and Principals of prominent schools in Guwahati to engage in an open discussion regarding the implementation of a robust Grassroots program. Representatives from five city based school-- Sanskriti the Gurukul, NPS International,- Royal Global School, South Point School and DPS (Guwahati) attended the meeting.

John Abraham stressed on the point of giving the country's football hotbed a concrete pathway to the top, "We are the gold-mine of football talent. Each state is brimming with unfound and undiscovered potential and it is our duty to give such prodigies an opportunity to showcase themselves."
