    * IF MY APPLICATION IS SUCCESSFUL, HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO ATTEND?

    The fee for attending the s only €99
    .
    For this you are guaranteed at least 3 days training and playing with coaches from Championship clubs in England. But the main issue is that you have the chance to progress to displaying your talents in front of numerous Scouts & Managers from Professional clubs in Ireland and the UK.


    * HOW DO I KNOW I WILL GET TO PLAY IN THE SHOWCASE GAME ?

    The simple answer is that there are no guarantees that you will. You have to pass through the selection stage to qualify for the Showcase game. You must back your own ability to make the cut.


    lol scam !!!!!

    What if your with a club?

    Its seriously a scam, they name players who played with actual clubs before they went to England. Glenn Hoddle, Paul Byrne involved????

    Seriously mate , look at the poor site quality , click on about us and it gives a vague outline without naming names. Its a money making scam , if your good enough to be scouted then it will happen without these things.

    Schoolboy clubs will become aware of you and the FAI run the emerging talent program too.

    Other Examples
    There are many more examples similar to this, Kevin Doyle, Shane Long, Stephen Ward, Seamus Coleman, Wes Hoolahan, Sean Dillon, John O'Flynn, Graham Gartland. All playing first team pro football in the UK and none of them over there since a young age. Late bloomers or undiscovered talent ?
    You decide !!!!!
    hahahahahaha

    They didnt say they got them clubs - read it again. its making the point that if u feel u got over looked as a young player, its never too late as the "named players" are used as examples of players who didnt go over at 16 but but when they were older...

    The majority of those players worked their way into senior football at LOI level before heading to England. They probably did go on trials to england as kids but for one reason or another didnt move then.

    "All playing first team pro football in the UK and none of them over there since a young age."

    i mentioned 16 myself as thats the magic age - the legal age of when players can sign for english teams.

    its not a scam. there are good experienced ppl behind it. if the web site looks dodgy fair enough but the idea isnt.
    i can understand ppl being negative towards it as its the first of its kind in Ireland and to many the idea has probably never been heard of before. there are lots of similar companys like this already operating in England. So the idea is actually years old.
    Many LOI managers have already expressed an interest in (im not going to name individual clubs) the older age group U17/18/19.
    its not a money scam as try work out how much you think it would cost to host something like this, then u will realise....

    maybe they werent good enough, their face didnt fit with the scout or club....they got a 2nd chance but there are plenty of players who werent as lucky. this is trying t ogive some players a 2nd chance.

    What makes you think you can advertise this scam on the forum for free?

    PM me if you want to pay for a ad, others don't post this again
