Finding the right kind of football talent is every coach’s dream; making it to the national level is every talented player’s aspiration. To bridge the opportunity gap between urban and rural football talent, the Pandey brothers — Kush, 17 (left), and Arjun, 15 — developed ScoutMe, an app that helps scout raw football talent across the country.

ScoutMe’s exhaustive system of player ratings can be accessed by the technical director or the head scout for decision-making in the team selection process. With 28,000 players and 3,000 registered scouts already on the platform, ScoutMe has been recognised as the official app of the All India Football Federation.

The platform aims to make the process of talent-scouting easier and more transparent. It also enables clubs to store the players’ data in their database for reference. With upgradation of multi-sport disciplines on the anvil, the app will help sports administrators find hitherto-overlooked rural talent.
