After a successful launch last year, the second edition of the AIFF International Virtual Coaching Conference will be conducted from December 3-5, 2021.

“Despite the pandemic situation last year, we had around 600 to 800 coaches who registered for the program. We are hoping for an even better turnout this time round,” said Savio Medeira, the AIFF’s Head of Coach Education and Interim Techincal Director.

The conference will feature eminent speakers like Andy Parslow (Set-piece Coach, AFC Wimbledon), Dawn Scott (Inter Miami), Manolo Marquez (Head Coach, Hyderabad FC), Owen Coyle (Head Coach, Jamshedpur FC), Andy Martino (Head of Academy Development, Southampton FC) and renowned throw-in coach Thomas Grønnemark amongst others.

“The variety in our speakers’ specialisation is something to look forward to considering the invaluable insights they could provide,” said Medeira, highlighting the inclusion of specialist coaches Parslow and Grønnemark.

Similar to the first edition, the prerequisite for attending the conference will be the AFC Pro, A, B and C diplomas. The coaches will be awarded 4 CPD points as a part of the ongoing coaching license revalidation process, which started with IVCC in 2020.Interested coaches can apply by logging onto the from November 27, 2021 onward.
