Our Mission

We are the winners of the 2016 Judges’ Choice Award as the Best International Blog at the Football Blogging Awards held at English football giants, Manchester United’s home stadium, Old Trafford: the first from India to ever achieve the feat.

Football Paradise’s efforts to cut the click-bait clutter have received a tip of the hat from the leading lights of The BBC (Phil McNulty), The Guardian (Barney Ronay), ESPN (Paolo Bandini), Sky Sports (Bianca Westwood), and ex-footballing stars among others. We pride ourselves in providing thought-provoking, passionate and insightful feature pieces on European football, book reviews, and interviews.

Started in the summer of 2008 as a small blog based out of Mumbai, India, Football Paradise is the brainchild of Gaurang Manjrekar, a senior consultant with Ernst & Young, New York. We believe in the lost tradition of storytelling. In an era of increasingly short attention spans, we’ve kept our focus on the art of creating quality football literature which is at par with anything rest of the world can offer, and more.
