Leicester City Football Club LogoSteve’s scouting insight & guidance was the key to my opportunity in working as a 1st team scout in producing next opposition & player reports for Leicester City in my 20’s having never previously worked in the game with no contacts nor professional playing experience! I would recommend this course to any aspiring scout!
Cambridge United Football Club LogoWe were delighted to utilise the services of Football Scouting Worldwide last season. FSW provided us with numerous team assessments from a pool of scouts with a geographical spread, ensuring that we were able to get live viewings of games across the country. They were also happy to help in providing player assessments whenever required & added a greater depth to our scouting capabilities. We look forward to our continued relationship with Steve & the team!
Millwall Football Club LogoWe have taken on guys directly upon completion of Football Scouting Worldwide's scouting course who have proven to be valuable members of our scouting team. They have demonstrated a range of knowledge, have applied themselves admirably & continue to develop under the management at Millwall FC.
Birmingham City Football Club & Ireland Logo In 2021 I completed the Football Scouting Worldwide course. I really enjoyed the scouting course and found the online learning aspect easy to follow and fit around my playing commitments. Upon completion of the course, I began scouting for FC Twente. Steve was a massive help throughout the course and very supportive. He was always available if I needed help with anything and continues to provide support. I would highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in football scouting!
