Soccer Trials – PRO IFX – 30 DAYS
Our most popular program, the Pro International Fútbol X-Change (Pro IFX), is uniquely structured international soccer trials program, very different from the standard international soccer camp or academy. Not only does it give qualified players access to our extensive club network, but it also allows them experience soccer and life in another country giving them total immersion in a foreign professional or amateur soccer club. IFX places each player individually among our various partner foreign club teams to train and trial with for a period of 30 days and arranges for the players’ accommodations.

The training and soccer trials period is an opportunity for players to experience intensive training routines, develop a quicker sense of pace and decision making, enhance their overall technical and tactical ability, and showcase their talent to our partner clubs. All partner clubs seriously consider IFX players as prospective members of their roster. Many past IFX participants have become active members of their original host club, using the Pro IFX as a starting point in their international soccer career. Amateur/Semi-Pro Soccer Tryouts FAQS
Not only do the participants gain valuable international soccer experience, but they are also educated about the culture of the peoples within the destination country.

It is an unforgettable life experience, providing a new perspective on the different walks of life that all share a passion for the same beautiful game.
