IKF Trials

IKF Trials

IKF conducts Trials in multiple cities across India with a view to scout exceptional talent. Kids scouted from these city trials are thoroughly assessed and qualified for Pre-Finals and then for National Finals. In National Finals we invite scouts from across the globe (specially from ISL & I League clubs) to select kids from the talent scouted by us via Pan India Trials.

Pan India

We go across India (24+ cities this season) to hunt talent. We are the first ones to hold mega trials in Ladakh & Andamans. Our aim is to cover 100 cities & villages within 5 years.

Thorough Scouting process

We have developed our own scouting process which is followed in all city trails. Process extends from training Indian scouts in Talent Identification to on ground SOPs and later Quality checking the work done by on-ground scout by experts.

Multiple opportunities

We bring in opportunities (Clubs & Academies) from within India and from outside India on a single platform for talented players. All these opportunities are brought for players scouted by us from across all city trials.

Phygital Platform

IKF apart from its Pan India physical network relies heavily on technology to attain transparency and accuracy in complete scouting process. Everything is being built inhouse to cater to our unique proposition.

India Khelo Football kickstarted Season 1 on 16th January, 2021 from Chandigarh and covered 17 cities within 12 months. This was our first season and we went all out to create structured career path for kids via our Trials.

20 kids got selected by ISL & I League clubs

IKF has kickstarted Season 2 in July 2024 – its 24-city talent hunt. All the learnings from Season 1 have been utilized here to make our Trials better.

We will be covering all 24 cities by December 2022. Pre Finals and National Finals will be scheduled in Feb 2023 where scouts from multiple clubs will be present to make selections.
