What is PCL ?
Despite having an excellent football team , Parikrma was often left out of inter – school football leagues hosted by various elite and international schools in Bangalore . In an effort to create a level playing field and oppose this fragmented and unequal system , We launched our own football tournament – the Parikrma Champions League ( PCL ) . The event has truly raised the bar for school level events and , since its inception in 2011 , has become one of the most coveted inter – school football tournaments in Bangalore.
Parikrma shared a Memorandum of Recommendation with the Government stressing the critical importance of Sports in schools in the year 2015 ,
