Aditya Datta is promoted to chief operating officer, FC Goa. He previously held the position of commercial director at the club. As the commercial director, Datta played a pivotal role in spearheading the efforts on the commercial front for the Gaurs last season. With him in charge the club saw its revenues rise 30 per cent within the space of a year.
Speaking on his new role, Datta said, “I am thankful to Akshay (Tandon) and the board for entrusting me with such a huge responsibility. I have been associated with the club in one form or the other since its inception and to be given such a massive opportunity is certainly an honour. This is a new challenge for me and I hope I can deliver my best in the new role. My first year with the club as commercial director, I believe, was a fruitful one. But this is just the beginning and we want to make FC Goa the benchmark in Indian football.”
