The first camp will be held at the APB ground here from June 10 to 14. The year-long camp will be held in various venues across the City from July 1.

“Football is growing in popularity in India year by year and we strongly believe we can play a role in developing the sport,” Daniel Angelici, chairman of Boca Juniors.
