Africa has plenty of young football talent but the big question is how to unearth them.
The relatively new but already successful Ghanaian academy club Golden Kick SC believes that it is best that scouts visit Accra to scout during local tournaments in which an abundance of young talents participate. Nothing beats seeing players live.
The tournaments are organized 'on-demand' of scouts so that they fit in the busy schedule of scouts.
The participating clubs understand that it should be possible for an interesting club to loan a player (against zero or minimum fee) with an option to buy. This enables a club to see if a player really fits in and meets the expectations without that the clubs immediately have to pay TC or a transfer fee.
The 2 previous tournaments have resulted in the transfer of players to Lori FC, Armenia, LOSC (France, Maccabi Haifa (Israel) and Watford (England).
Tomorrow (16 September 2019) the 3rd on-demand scouting tournament will start with 13 participating clubs and 14 teams.
Interested scouts who wish to attend future scouting tournaments can use this form to get in contact. Please mention that it regards the scouting tournament.
