Goan Community of Oman

Sports PDF Print

Today sports brings communities, states, countries together. Every emerging country believes that sports can contribute a lot in building friendship, harmony, peace and understanding among nations. This is truer of Goa, for sports runs in every Goan’s blood. People around the globe acknowledge Goans as fun loving and peaceful people and that comes from their natural love for sports.

Even though Goa is a small state, it is held in high esteem with regard to football, hockey, swimming, athletics, and windsurfing. Especially football. Any discussion on Indian football cannot leave out the Goan equation. With four Goan clubs – Dempo SC, Churchill Bros SC, Clube De Sporting and Vasco SC featuring in the 12 team Indian league, the success of Goan clubs on the national scene bears testimony to the love and passion Goans have for this game in particular. Mr Brahmanand SK Shankhwalker is Goa’s first recipient of the Arjuna Award, which is India’s most prestigious sports award. Mr Brahmanand rose to be one of finest goalkeepers in Indian football.

We the Sports Sub-committee have committed ourselves to giving the Goan sports talent in Oman a platform to perform, exhibit and share sporting events amongst fellow Goans and others.
