Mahinda Galagedara one of Sri Lanka’s prominent football coaches, conducted a Football Online Workshop via zoom technology. There were over 100 local participants along with participants from more than 13 countries, which was dedicated to work outs in the gym. Several players, coaches, referees and children from local academies benefitted from that work shop.

Meanwhile,he took a unique initiative to help former National footballers who are now over 75 years old. He is offering a comprehensive health support package, which includes doctors’ consultancy and medicine free of charge for a period of two years.

Piyadasa Perera (81) who represented the National side for 14 years was the first person to receive this package. On a request made by Galagedera, L.C.Y. Store (Company) quite magnanimously agreed to his request and granted this package to Perera. He intends to add more former players to this novel project with the support of the sponsors.
