Hyderabad FC kick-off pre-season in Goa

Asst. Coach Thangboi Singto leads opening session as HFC becomes first team to begin field training in a bio-bubble

Panjim, Goa: Hyderabad FC became the first Indian Super League club to start their pre-season in a bio-bubble ahead of the upcoming 2020-21 campaign. Following the league’s safety protocols, HFC’s personnel spent the stipulated time in quarantine in Hyderabad before traveling to Goa last week. The players and staff at Hyderabad FC also spent a week in quarantine in Goa while conducting regular tests, and have finally begun Level-2 field training.

The Indian contingent has been divided into two groups and that will train on the ground at different times, and took the field at the Don Bosco Ground in Panjim under Assistant Coach Thangboi Singto.

“Safety is of paramount importance as of now, and we’re strictly adhering to the guidelines set out by the league and our management. After a long quarantine period, it feels nice to be back on the pitch finally, and we’re training in separate batches as of now. It’s very important for all players to be monitored constantly, since they’re coming off a long off-season period, and together with the entire staff at Hyderabad FC we’re ensuring we take very good care of them,” said Singto on the sidelines of the first session.
