Looking For Football Trials For African Players Abroad? You’re covered

Earth

Set Goals

Set your goals prior football trial attendance. Aim high. Football has no limits.

Talent?

Talent is not enough. Be the heart of the team. Be the fly in the milk.

Coaching

During trials you will receive UEFA professional coaching. Be a team player.

Pack your bags

Congrats!!! Through football trials you have just found your next club to start your career.

Is Your Football Trials The Right Path For Me?

Not everyone is suited to becoming a professional footballer. If you are meant to make a real difference rather than being stuck in a 9-5 job & play amateur football with your friends then this football trial is for you. And for that, you need to start somewhere.

This is what our European football trials in Greece are about. We are offering you a road map & a path.

Can You Guarantee That I Will Get A Professional Football Contract?

We cannot guarantee to players or to their agents that his/her players will get a professional contract. Why?
Because none in the world can guarantee that a footballer is capable to play as a pro. But, we can guarantee you an amateur contract for one season

Will Any Professional Football Club Be Interested In Me?

We are not sending players to clubs just for training. It is pointless. ALL the clubs you will be training or playing with or against are interested to get players. Their crazy dream is to get the next CR7 for free and sell him 220m like Neymar. The right question is: are you the next football star? Do you have what it takes to enter professional football?
All clubs are interested in getting cheap players in all positions. You are a cheap player for them now. Never forget that.

Who Will Represent Me at the Football Tryout?

Idsoccer is NOT going to represent you. For us it’s not so much about convincing you to join us. It’s about us convincing ourselves that you worth our time and effort.
We have to be selective and pick our players based on attitude, ambition and ability. Our philosophy has always been to keep our player’s list small but filled with quality. In that way we can manage everyone equally and give everyone the attention they need in a professional working class environment.
But if you succeed in our trials we will have an eye on you and scout you for one year. Then, if you impress us, we will offer you a professional representation contract.

Let’s Talk Money. Is There Enough Money For Everyone?

Once a player is chosen by a club he will get at least full accommodation and a monthly salary. Usually more than 750 euro from a professional club and more than 300 euro from a semi-pro club, depending on his age, talent, CV, position in the game.
Additionally, for international players, clubs may pay their insurance & resident permit if any or both needed.

When Are We Going To Get Our Money Back?

The big question is how all the evolving parties: agents / sponsors / investors / guardians / players will earn some money. Well… you should be patient. We should be also patient.
We give some time to the football player to be pro while, in the meantime, is developing. Then the money will follow. May be not in his first professional contract. Football & other sports are high risk investments. Therefore, an agent without connections, a fraud agent, greediness, injuries, nonprofessional players & other small or big unexpected factors can easily ruin a player’s career & send all business plans to the waste basket.
No big money now. No big money after six months. May be some money next year. Be patient. With yourself & your goals.
