How much does a football scout earn?
The good scout's characteristics
The Football scout's handbook
" Training is always the first step in approaching a new world or applying yourself in the field when carrying out an activity, train with us!"
"At the end of the journey, you will understand that this is learning. Knowing that something you had understood all along simply had to be seen in a different way."
"Teaching is not just a cold passing of information, but a relationship between two human beings, in which one is thirsty for knowledge and the other is devoted to passing on all his knowledge."
Our courses for football scouts
How do our football scouting courses differ?
We combine theoretical training with practice. Whether it is practice on the field with one of our FIFA Agents and Observer partners, or a cluster of matches to be analysed independently, with Scoutit you have the opportunity to experience football observation from the stands of sports facilities right away.
In fact, our training experience does not only provide notions but aims to introduce you to the world of observation immediately after completing our course.
