Peninsula Pune Football Club Academy (PPFCA) have postponed their ‘Open’ trials for the Under-19 and Under-17 teams to May 16 at the Pune FC Training Pitch in Mamurdi. The decision to postpone the trials was solely taken by the Pune FC management due to unnamed reasons. Selected players will be eligible for a two-season residential programme (2013 to 2015). Both batches will begin regular training in July 2013.

The Under-17 programme will make up the first batch of the PPFCA residential scheme breaking away from the non-residential tag held earlier. The Under-19s trials are for the second batch.

Age eligibility is as follows:

Under-17 – Players born after January 1, 1997
Under-19 – Players born after January 1, 1995

Registration forms can be downloaded from, which is listed under the link ‘Academy’.

Forms will need to be emailed with a subject line bearing – ‘Under -19 Trials’ or ‘Under-17 Trials’ respectively to on or before May 10, 2013.

Note: All trialists who have applied earlier are requested NOT to resend applications.

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.

All players attending any age-group ‘Pune FC Open Trials’ should carry along a proof of age document/certificate (a xerox of either birth certificate/ SSLC Certificate issued by board of education or passport).
