Elite Tech Football Academy Ltd and Eurotech Football Centre during the past 5 years built up an extensive scouting network which covers a huge spectrum of Professional & Semi Professional Scouts and contacts from clubs in the UK as well as Spain and throughout Europe. 


It is the amount of scouts from League Clubs from Italy Serie A & B and the English Conference National Leagues to the Premier League together with La Liga, Segunda and Segunda B in Spain, over to the Bundesliga in Germany and then further into Europe, from semi pro to professional, our Open trials days and football trial events will provide genuine opportunities for players to gain exposure and to be scouted.


Scouts who attend our open days vary in numbers and can come from all over Eurpope from clubs at various levels to give you the maximum showcase opportunity!


Players in their early to mid 20s having not previously been in a Professional Club environment may find it difficult (but not impossible) to secure a Premier league or Championship or even league 1 club opportunity in the UK but, in European clubs opportunities maybe more flexible to achieve your goal at a lower level.


Our Scouting network in the lower Leagues in the UK and throughout Europe ensure players are often given more exposure & playing time at a level more adapt to their ability, the saying 'a diamond in the rough' rings perfectly true.

Join our Open Football Trials now and begin your Football Journey....
