The I-League U20 is the top level of youth football in India. It is contested between the under-20 sides of The I-League. The most successful team currently is Pune who won the league in 2012 and 2013.
The league was founded as the I-League U19 in 2011 which was to give youth teams of the I-League a national league to play in as at that time the I-League youth teams only played in state youth leagues. Clubs fielded Under-19 teams. 16 teams were split into four groups of four with only one group containing only three teams. At the end of the season the top team from the group stage would move onto the final group stage with the other group winners and play each other once. The inaugural winners were JCT.
The competition name was changed in 2012 to the I-League U20  because many u20 players in the I-League were not getting any time in the senior teams. Teams will play those within their own group twice and again the top teams will move on to the final group at the end.
