The squad’s average age is 24. Most players are from or originally from West Bengal, Kerala or Goa; the “soccer states” of India. Nine players from the 2008 tournament remain in the squad. Making his debut for his country is Srinath Lakshmaiya, who played football in the Welsh Australian Rules Football League. Another possible debut is GWS Academy-listed player Dhruv Kaushik, although he is currently sidelined with an injury.

The squad will be lead by Sudip Chakraborty (Captain) and Vishnu Rishie (Vice Captain).
