All India Football Federation, on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, named 31 probables for the U17 national camp to be held in Srinagar from July 8 in preparations for the SAFF U17 Men’s Championship 2024.

The seven-nation tournament will be played in Bhutan from September 18 to 28. India are clubbed with Maldives and Bangladesh in Group A, while Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan and Si Lanka are in Group B.

Once the SAFF campaign is over, the squad will continue to train in Srinagar for the 2025 AFC U17 Asian Cup qualifiers to be played in October 2024.

Several players among the probables were part of the Indian squad that won the SAFF Men’s U16 championship in Bhutan last September.
