Player drafts

Before the season began, the rosters were formed through two player drafts, based on the college draft system used in the United States. The first draft would be to sign the initial 14 Indian players and then the second one would be to sign seven foreign players.[5]

Domestic players draft

The domestic players draft took place within two days on 22 July and 23 July 2014 in Mumbai.[6] There were 84 players up for grabs during the draft that could be selected between six of the eight Indian Super League teams (Goa and NorthEast United selected from their respective I-League teams).[6] Close to 50% of the 84 players had played for India internationally.[6] The opening pick in the draft was Lenny Rodrigues by FC Pune City. Subrata Pal, Syed Nabi, and Gouramangi Singh were the most expensive picks during the draft.[6]

International draft

After the completion of the domestic draft, the international draft took place on 21 August 2014, also in Mumbai.[7] There were 49 players available for selection during the draft.[7] The first pick in the draft was former Inter Milan defender, Bruno Cirillo, who was selected by FC Pune City.[8]
