India 17th August 2023 – India Khelo Football (IKF), a non-profit organization aimed at connecting Indian
grassroots talent to the global football ecosystem, is thrilled to announce the upcoming ProSoccer Global
Workshop across four major cities in India. Building on the remarkable success of the previous year's workshop
that witnessed an exceptional turnaround of 300+ kids, the winner got a 100% scholarship to train at Steven
Gerrard Academy in Liverpool.
Last year, Mongtsu Tungoe from Wokha, Nagaland, shone brilliantly, capturing the attention of scouts and
winning the scholarship training at Steven Gerrard, free of cost. Having previously showcased his skills with clubs
like Sudeva FC and Guwahati City FC, Mongtsu's journey exemplifies the potential of Indian football talents to
thrive on the global stage.
In continuation of this success story, IKF is proud to present the ProSoccer Global Workshop 2023 in partnership
with Premier League Academy scouts and agent, set to take place in Mumbai (15 & 16 Sep), Pune (17 Sep),
Bangalore (19 Sep), and New Delhi (23 & 24 Sep). The workshop is open to boys and girls aged 2004-2012,
offering them a chance to learn, grow, and develop their game under the guidance of experienced coaches. This
year, the workshop is back with even bigger rewards and opportunities for young football talents. Selected
participants will have the chance to earn 100% scholarships at prestigious international academies like IFAP &
AAC, Betim, FC/Soccer Express, Sportsmate 360, Winning Soccer Skills/Academy Naranja, and Buckswood
One can register for the workshop here with a fee of INR 5000.
Hitesh Joshi and Phani Bhushan, Founding Members of IKF, said "We are immensely proud to see such talent
hidden in the corners of our country. We believe that identification with the right set of opportunities will create a
talent pipeline propelling Indian Football on the global stage. The ProSoccer Global Workshop is a great
opportunity for young talents to receive expert feedback and assessment that will pave their way to success."
Jimmy Hayes and Chris McGrath, Co-Directors of ProSoccer Global and seasoned Premier League scouts,
emphasized, "We firmly believe in the immense potential of Indian football, and we are excited to witness and
nurture this talent pool once again. The workshop is a part of our vision with IKF to assist the grassroots talent in
India with a structured career path.”
Mogtsu’s potential was recognised beyond the boundaries as Vector X (a sportswear brand in India) also signed
him up for “Vector X Athlete program” before he flew to the UK. Vector X believes in his potential and Mongtsu is
the first athlete to be signed by them for this newly formed Athlete Program aimed at budding football players.
The ProSoccer Global Workshop will equip participants with comprehensive technical assessment reports,
certifying their abilities as players. The workshop's structured approach includes age and position-specific training,
fitness drills, tactical assessments, and matches, ensuring a holistic development experience.
