Enjogo aims to reach out to football aspirants across the length and breadth of the country through its latest initiative - 100 Trials. 100 Cities. Unlimited Dreams.
The Enjogo Technical Team has shortlisted 100+ Indian cities to conduct trials based on football popularity and select the best young players for BBFS Residential Academy.
BBFS or Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools is India's largest football academy and already provides over INR 2 Crores worth of scholarships for talented footballers under its residential program. There are opportunities to gain up to 100% scholarships covering academics, training, food, lodging, and competitive exposure.
“This is just the beginning. As our operations grow, we will keep on adding more venues to the list. Eventually, the plan is to cover every district in India,” said Kishore Taid, Co-founder and CEO of Enjogo and Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools.
BBFS Residential Academies are operational across five cities - Delhi, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Karnataka, and Kerala. The trials will happen in two phases - regional and national. After selection in the first phase, the selected footballers will travel to one of the BBFS Residential Academies for the final round.
“We want to reach out to every youngster and allow them to represent us. Through the trials, we aim to find the best talent and provide them an ideal pathway to reach the pinnacle,” said Bhaichung Bhutia, India’s longest-serving football team captain and the Co-founder of BBFS.
BBFS has developed a robust scouting network where many academy players have played for the India age-group teams, Indian Super League, I-League, and Santosh Trophy teams. Gaurav Bora (Northeast United), Rohit Kumar (Bengaluru FC), Aashique Kuruniyan (Indian national team), and many other international stars started at BBFS and have risen through the ranks.
Players born between 1st January 2006 to 31st December 2013 are eligible to participate in the trials. The reporting time is 8:30 IST. Footballers must carry their kits and a valid Government ID. A registration fee of INR 100/- is applicable for all attendees.
