Salvador do Mundo Village Panchayat Ground

A restraining order has been placed on the Salvador do Mundo Panchayat by the Principal District Judge, Panaji after news came out that members of the local panchayat invaded the ground and vandalised.

As per the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the club and the village panchayat, the Goan club was given access to use the facilities of the Salvador do Mundo Village Panchayat Ground. In return, FC Goa developed the infrastructure and built two football grounds at their own cost. According to the agreement, FC Goa has access to one of the grounds for the first team practise sessions, while the other was used by the Panchayat and the local residents.

However, on November 22nd, the members of the local panchayat indulged in an act of premeditated vandalism at the ground when the football pitch was desecrated as the turf was dug up and later filled with concrete by the newly elected members of the Salvador do Mundo Panchayat.

In an order passed by the Principal District Judge, North Goa, dated 22-12-2021, the Panchayat has been “restrained for causing any further damage to ground 1 together with infrastructure’. The Panchayat has been given time till January 15, 2022 to reply to the matter.

Following the act of vandalism, FC Goa had temporarily moved its first team activities away from the ground fearing a possible breach in bio-bubble protocols. The Gaurs’ First Team returned to the Salvador Do Mundo Panchayat Ground in the first week of December after assurances of police protection were put in place should the need arise to protect against a bio bubble breach.
