Sesa Goa Group, owned by Vedanta, will organise the second edition of the Under-20 Sesa Cup from March 24 to April 1. The tournament has not been held for nearly a decade, but the Sesa Group think that such a tournament could be a platform for talented youngsters to show their skills and capabilities as footballers to maybe become professionals.
The eight teams taking part are the hosts Sesa Football Academy, Dempo SC, Salgaocar SC, Churchill Brothers SC, Sporting Clube de Goa, Cavelossim SC, Curtorim Gymkhana and the Goa-based Brasil Futebol Academia.
