JFC Malappuram (Janakeeya Football Club, Malappuram), the first fans-owned football club of Malabar will be inaugurated on October 28, 2018 at Kondotty, Malappuram. The function will be inaugurated by Sri T V Ibrahim MLA. This club will be owned by its fans, just like world’s bigger football clubs like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, SL Benfica and Borussia Dortmund.
The club is promoted by Sports & Management Research Institute (SMRI), the first sports management and sports engineering research institute in India. SMRI is promoting the concept of fans-owned football clubs in Asia.
While the traditional football clubs consider their fans as 12th man, SMRI’s fans-owned clubs consider fans as the first striker and the ultimate defender. As per the fans-owned football club philosophy, Fan is the boss. Fans create big clubs and big players. So the first man is fan and the No 1 jersey will be permanently assigned for the fans.
The club will be incubated at the SPORTUP (Sports Startup) facility of Sports & Management Research Institute (SMRI) till it’s breakeven.
We cordially invite you to be part of JFC Malappuram.
