Odisha FC will begin its selection process for the OFC Men’s Reserve team starting at Jharsuguda on 30th April and 1st May 2022. OFC Coaches will conduct the two-day trials for players born on and after 1st January 2000 and before 31st December 2005.
The venue of the trials will be the Mini Stadium, O.S.A.P 2nd Battalion at Jharsuguda, with the support of the Jharsuguda District Athletics Association and the Football Association of Odisha (FAO). Other than players in Jharsuguda, the club expects to scout talent from neighboring districts of Sundergarh, Bargarh, Deogarh and Sambalpur, Balangir, and Subarnapur. Players traveling from Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, and other eastern districts will not be eligible for trials at Jharsuguda, as the club will hold trials at Bhubaneswar / Cuttack in another selection camp at a slightly later date.
The trials are a precursor to the formation of the OFC Men’s Reserve team. Select players will be longlisted from trials across the venues and invited for a final selection process in Bhubaneswar. A shortlisted group of players will train with OFC coaches in a camp, before being inducted into the OFC Men’s Reserve team through a final round of selections.
OFC Youth Coaches will lead the longlisting process. The final selections for the OFC Reserve team will be conducted under the supervision of OFC Senior team Coaches.
