Just as Moore’s law impacts technology and everyday lives, the game of football evolves and changes with time. Every aspect of Football needs to be assessed and developed. The player improvement and local area involvement has been very positive with the Traveller Football Academy and its role at grass roots level football development.
The reason for these tournaments and generous prize money is to encourage the primary instincts to compete and win. Furthermore, the junior players look forward to these social events and become productive individuals. Such high aspirations can only be achieved with team work. The standard of football needs to be elevated in Sri Lanka to become more competitive and compete at the international stage.
