What happens at a football showcase match?

We have held football trials in the UK since 2001 with great success. Many of our trial footballers have gone on to sign for football clubs across Europe as a result of our UK trials. Our UK football trials are regularly attended by scouts from the Premier League and English Football League, as well as non-league and international coaches and football managers. Many players have a club trial following one of our events.

On the day you will play in game in your age group. There are often age groups for 14 to 15 year olds and for those 16 years old and over. We do occasionally run football events for younger age groups.

You can book your age group and preferred playing position online and you'll receive full details of what to bring on the day along with time, locations and trials advice.
