Welcome to the Puma Football Academy trials site.
This page is for the parents/carers of foreign boys invited by an Academy Scout to attend one of our trials Centres – we have provided all the relevant information about us and our trials Centres in this section.
“We are extremely proud of our Development Centre and Player Pathway programme, which I believe offers a unique opportunity within the professional game for children and young people to progress from playing grass roots football to potentially becoming a First Team player at Puma Academy.
Both the Academy and its partner professional Clubs are committed to ensuring that the best opportunities are provided to all members of our Academy to develop to their full potential, regardless of background.”
Marek Kozoroski MBE, Chief Executive Officer, Puma International Sport Academy.
Puma Academy is passionate about football and youth development. Our Elite Soccer School and Foreign Tryout Centres are generally aimed at boys aged 16 until 26.
We endeavour to create a fun environment within the boundaries of discipline that allows the boys to demonstrate flair and individualism without fear of criticism.
Our ethos is to recruit the best potential which can be developed by the best coaches, working in the best facilities, underpinned by the best holistic support.
The Elite Soccer School Centres provide young footballers an opportunity and a pathway to professional football.

We aim to identify and recruit young talent through the Academy’s extensive scouting network. This means that if one of our staff identifies a talented player, the boy (via the parent/carer) will be invited to attend one of the Development Centres on a trial basis in order to assess him.
Trialist Form – strictly by invitation only: The parent/carer of the boy under 18 years of age must complete a Trialist Form and give to the Academy, before his first session.
