About Indore City Football Academy (ICFA)

ICFA aims to develop the footballers of tomorrow. At ICFA, it is our mission to revolutionize how football is taught at grassroots levels. Our objective is to develop confident, creative and intelligent footballers through a player centered approach to coaching football, and to bring the youth development model of clubs from top countries like Spain, Italy, Germany and England, to our city.

ICFA Founder’s note

When I was 7, 8, 10 years old, I never dreamt of being a coach. All I wanted to be was a top level professional footballer, playing in the top leagues in the world. All kids that age, who watch and live football on a daily basis, want to do that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen for everyone, like it was the case with me. But my life is not a drama, I searched for new motivations and then I found one.

I became an AIFF licensed football coach, which I never expected. Whether you grow up to be a footballer or not, the right kind of opportunity matters the most. I always knew, with the right kind of training at the right age, our country has the potential to produce players who can go ahead and do that. Especially this city, where I have been playing football since I was a kid.

Through I.C.F.A, it is our mission to make sure that we as coaches, can do our job, and make sure India produces a generation that finally makes an appearance in the World Cup 2030.
