• What is Academy Accreditation?

    An integral part of AIFF’s Vision and Mission is to improve playing standards and increase the possibility of success at the top level. The development of aspiring young talents is at the core of these objectives, and Academy Accreditation process introduced by AIFF is a step taken to strengthen and improve the Youth Development System in the country.

    The AIFF, in close collaboration with its State Football Associations (hereafter SFAs), through this Academy Accreditation process grades clubs and academies’ Youth Development Structure and offers them national recognition for the standards attained.

    Together, AIFF and the FAs will set the benchmark for player development in training centres and support the clubs and their academies in nurturing the next generation of top-level professional players.
