The EduKick Pro Football Trial Showcase in Manchester is an intensive 6-week football training soccer camp that includes a one-day professional football trial event, where you will have the chance to play in front of UK & European pro club officials, scouts, and representatives in attendance.
Our next trial showcase is set for 29 March 2020 – 9 May 2020.
TUITION INCLUDES entry into our EduKick Manchester Football Showcase Event:
In addition to intense pro training sessions on a daily basis and academic study, participating players will be able to showcase their talent in front of invited scouts from clubs at all levels of the football structure in the UK and playing alongside some top quality players in the trials. This is a real target for all players to get noticed by the professional UK or European based club. At our EduKick Manchester football trials on average, we have 15+ different club scouts in attendance, all looking for players.
We submit player’s football resume (information) with notes on their progress throughout their time with us and previous achievements sometimes with links to their own player profile on our website. This information is provided to all scouts in attendance. In recent history, we have had EduKick players selected at the events for further club trials with Crewe Alexandra FC, Bury FC, Accrington Stanley FC, Everton FC, and Witton Albion and more!
In our previous football pro trial the following clubs were presented:
Manchester United; Manchester City; Blackburn Rovers; Cheadle Town; FK Göterborg, Örebro sporting Club; Eskilstuna FC; Degerförs; PSV Eindhoven; Herrevein FC; Grönongen FC; Monaco; OGC Nice; Norwich City; Curzon Ashton; Fleetwood Town; Oldham Athletic
Macclesfield Town; Manchester Central FC
Showcase your Football Skills to Pro-Club Scouts & Representatives
Train and play to demonstrate your football ability in front of official scouts and club representatives from a range of football clubs from the northwest of England. All levels of the club will be represented; from Premier League down to semi-professional and non-league clubs. In addition, representatives from established scouting organizations, working for clubs across the UK and overseas, will also be in attendance and looking for talented players.
How is a Showcase different than a TRIAL?
A showcase is either a full or half-day event where you can play and train in front of invited scouts and club representatives from clubs of all levels. Should you perform at a high enough level you may be invited to the club training ground for a trial.
Any player whose details are requested by a pro or semi-professional club will and invited to trial, will be contacted as soon as possible by a member of our team. We will not share your personal details with anyone without first gaining express permission from the player (if over 18) or a parent for those under 18.
Should you be selected for a club trial then the club will contact you once your details have been shared, to arrange the details of your visit. In some cases clubs may ask us to liaise with you in order to arrange such a visit.
A club football trial can take many different formats and will vary from club to club. Some clubs will invite players to train with their youth academy. This allows them to observe how a player measures up against those players who have already been signed. Some clubs have “shadow squads” or “development squads” which run alongside their academy cohort. These squads may act as feeders into the main academy squad.
Some clubs track players during the season that they have spotted at a Showcase event. Should such a trial be requested, we would inform the player and/or his parents or guardians.
