The international football excellence program

The International Football Excellence Program (IFEP) is a residential football training program based in Bengaluru, designed to take young and driven football players to the height of their athletic potential.

Student-athletes will live the lives of professional footballers, training under the guidance of our hand-picked coaches, competing in elite competitions, and facing fresh new challenges on and off the pitch every day, at the Padukone-Dravid Centre for Excellence.

Selected athletes will live on campus and have the chance to comprehensively develop themselves at school, on the pitch and through our planned extra-curriculars, at the IFEP.

The program represents the collective efforts of three premier institutions that are driven by the same desire – to create comprehensive opportunities for the sporting future of this country. Boca Juniors India (Technical Partner) the Padukone-Dravid Centre for Sports Excellence (Infrastructure Partner) and DPS North Bengaluru (Education Partner), have come together to give those talented few the chance to make it as professional footballers. In doing so, the IFEP looks to shape the future of elite athletes in India.
