In a partnership with Evolution Soccer/MRSoccer, they have entered into a 3 year deal that will see Italian side Empoli FC send a scout/coach to assess the participants at the locally held event with the goal of sourcing talented young players who will be offered trials at their professional Academy back in Perugia, Italy.

At Ashton Brosnaham Park on March 20-23, the players will all play at least one game per day in front of the scout/coach before an invited final few will return for a final match where at least two players will be offered a trial ranging from one week to three months back in Italy.

The prize: An all-expenses paid trial with accommodation and food, where the players will be enveloped in an all-day soccer environment from morning to night, to give the players a feel for the total professional Academy structure.

“This is a great opportunity for all players,” commented Pensacola City FC owner Bill Fetke, “For Empoli FC to come over here and select two players to go back to Italy with them for free is great. It is a once in a lifetime chance for two players to go play in Italy.”

The host club Pensacola City FC currently play within the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) that is roundly accepted as the fourth division in the US Soccer pyramid. This opportunity will further enhance the standing of the club in the community, as they bring a somewhat unique opening to talented young soccer players, as they look to achieve their dreams of becoming professional soccer players.

Pensacola City FC are a progressive club with an eye on helping to grow youth soccer and the partnership allies with Empoli FC who also encourage young players the opportunity to further their career with this chance of a lifetime trial in Italy.

The real winners though, are the players that participate in the event. With the chance of a trial in Perugia, Italy, the players are really being offered a chance of a lifetime to place themselves in a professional soccer environment that is rarely seem in the USA.
