Kolkata Goalz is a Premier Skills project that helps build positive relationships between young people in high deprivation areas and the local authorities through sport. Over the last two years it has been operational in 12 venues across Kolkata, covering 24 police station jurisdictions and reaching out to 1000+ young people between 12-18 years of age, involved in weekly football training sessions, and other activities, including English teaching delivered by the British Council and participation in tournaments and athletics events.

The project is led by the Premier League and the British Council in partnership with the Kolkata Police, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation, All India Football Federation and Indian Football Association (West Bengal) and in association with nine Kolkata Premier League Football Clubs — Mohun Bagan Athletic Club, East Bengal Club, George Telegraph Sports Club, Mohammedan Sporting Club, Police Athletic Club, United Sports Club, Aryan Club, Dalhousie Athletic Club and Kalighat Milan Sangha Football Club, who are directly involved in the delivery of the project.
