After successful completion of Season 1 & 2, IKF has launched Season 3 which will be bigger and wider. With 50+ cities to cover for Season 3, IKF would create history in India by being the only grassroot organisation to do so at such a large scale. IKF is neither a club nor an academy; we are a platform that is bridging the gap between grassroot football and professional football by eliminating opportunity divide. The talent that we scout is not for our consumption but for the professional clubs.
IKF over a period has developed their own scouting process which is certified by the European standards. All the IKF scouts are PFSA certified and assess the players on the basis of a 4 corner assessment sheet which has various attributes on the basis of which a rating chart (MI-TAS) is generated. Apart from on ground scouting with the help of video analytics the central team of scouts again reassess the scouted players post which the result for city trial winners is announced.

- The selection of player is done with the help of the most talented scouts in India and post a predefined transparent medium. Any queries related to judgement of the scout will only be answered if they are justified queries.
- The players who get scouted for International Programs are solely decided by the International scouts and the number of the players that get scouted is totally at the discretion of International scouts.
- India Khelo Football never charges anything else apart from the one time registration fee which is paid by the player online at the time of city trial registration.

- Players who attend city trials/zonals/finals have to look after their own travel, food and stay.
- Any false information provided during registration can result in the disqualification of the player from the trials
- The schedule for city trials is announced by keeping all the local factors in mind; however because of some operational constraints there is always a possibility of trials getting cancelled or delayed.
