Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA)

The Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA) will conduct open trials for their U-17 and U-19 teams.

The trials will be held at the Pune FC training pitch in Mamurdi from April 20 to 25, 2013 and the selected trialists would be part of a two-season residential programme (2013 to 2015) at PPFCA.

Interested youngsters born after 01.01.1997 (U-17 Category) and 01.01.1995 (U-19 Category) are eligible to take part in the trials.

“The idea to have an Under-17 residential programme is to allow players make a stage wise progress a concept followed world over. We believe and hope that someday, with the right exposure, players from these ranks will graduate to higher levels and make all proud,” Pune FC’s Head Of Youth Development Ranjan Choudhary told the official club website

Youngsters interested to take part in the PPFCA trials need to registrate for the same. The filled out registration form – [+ DOWNLAOD U-17 FORM] or [+ DOWNLAOD U-19 FORM] – need to be emailed with a subject line bearing “Under -19 Trials” or “Under-17 Trials” respectively to on or before April 22, 2013.

Every applicant will thereafter be emailed a Confirmed Registration Number (CRN), which will make them eligible to give a trial. The CNR reply mail will also include all other details.
