The J&K Sports Council will host twin camps for India U-17 National Team which will participate in  the SAFF U-17 Championship followed by AFC U-17 Championship Qualifiers in September and October.

The team had trained under the tutelage of the renowned footballer of the J&K, Ishfaq Ahmad who was nominated as the head coach of the team for the SAFF U-16 Championship held at Thimphu, Bhutan in September 2023 wherein India U-16 team won the title, the news portal reported.

“With an eye on the growth of football and the involvement of the youth in the game in the region which enjoys the numero-uno status due to its wide popularity the focus on grassroots and its professional aspects shall add a new chapter in the football history of J&K,” Nuzhat Gull Secretary J&K Sports Council told the news portal.
