Meet the Founder

Hello, I am Rajendra Kamath. I grew up in Anushaktinagar (the very same place Suryakumar Yadav hails from!), Mumbai, a place known for its fantastic sports facilities. It's where my passion for sports began.

I moved to the USA and then to Bengaluru, where I instilled a love for football in my children. In 2023, both my sons earned football scholarships at US universities. This journey taught me valuable lessons on the process.

Now, I want to share these insights with parents who aim to send their talented kids to the USA on sports scholarships. That is why I founded FINAL THIRD.

Vision & Mission



Our vision is to create a transformative journey for promising Indian athletes, empowering them to follow their athletic passion while receiving a world class education, thereby setting them up for extraordinary journey of growth and success.



To provide comprehensive guidance, information, suggest viable options of pursuing sports along with getting world class education in the USA.

We offer a unique and valuable perspective that sets us apart

Why Engage with Us



I have guided my own sons through their football journey, from clubs and academies in India to exposure trips in Europe and the US. I have experienced the ups and downs, making me well-equipped to assist your family.



I have been in your shoes, pondering over the future of my kids in sports. I have explored various avenues for their development, giving me a deep understanding of the choices you're considering.



Having lived in the US for over a decade, I have blended my American experience with an Indian parent’s expectations where making it big in sports goes hand in hand with a world-class education.



I am aware of the financial concerns associated with committing to the entire process upfront, only to have your child change direction towards an academic-oriented path. I can help you make informed decisions to minimize such risks. Moreover,the flexibility in my offerings will take care of any such scenario.
