    What are the job opportunities given for a National Sportsman in India? Will a good Sportsman get the Government job?

    I really want to be a great football player in my life but the problem is my Family doesn’t support they are saying you won’t get job if you go for sports and so on but I have heard from my friend that if we shine as good Sportsman Indian Government will give a Government job. Is that true? What are the job opportunities given for a National Sportsman in India? What is the assurance of getting the job?

    Hi,

    Same is the case with most of the families in India. Sporting as a career was not well accepted before some time.

    Presently the trend seems to be changing and we can see many youngsters taking sporting as a serious career option.

    Now coming to your question about government support/job for people considering football as a career path.

    This sounds a bit risky at present, looking at the present football scenario in India.

    Though we can see a glimmer of hope, with sporting enthusiasts like Sharukh Khan and others investing into football academies.

    There is very limited chances of securing a govt. job, since you to be absolutely brilliant in this field and need to represent the country in some forums.

    You can see the awards announced for various sportsmen who represented the country in olympics (most of them secured govt. jobs).

    Railways, police jobs and some similar opportunities can be secured by being a top notch footballer.

    Cheers

    There are lots of benefits you can avail if you are a sportsman. You need to be good at what you do. First try to have a degree to get a government job and also practise for your sport. If you play for the state matches then you will get job in the state government quota or if you play for the central government like national matches then you will get a job in central sector like railways or in central banks. So if you want to be a sports person dont be discouraged by others, do your workouts and you will get job and also popular if you succeed in your sport.
