Nike Most Wanted is Nike’s global football talent search that gives young unsigned players an opportunity to get noticed and to join the Nike Academy. Do you have what it takes?
In 2015, Nike Most Wanted will give trials to thousands of players from across the world, all fighting to win a coveted spot to compete with the world’s best undiscovered players for places at the Nike Academy.
Most Wanted Pacific Head Scouts and former Socceroos, Brett Emerton and Craig Moore, will be assessing the players to see if they have what it takes to compete at a international level.
You will need technical ability, physical fitness, positional awareness and steely determination to make it.
FFA’s Head of National Performance, Luke Casserly said “FFA is delighted to be working with Nike on this project.
"Our national elite player pathway has come a long way but we also understand there are many talented players outside our mainstream system.
"Nike’s Most Wanted program is a great initiative and an excellent vehicle for those unsigned players to test themselves against the best unsigned talent in Australia and the world.”
The Australian Trial will be held in Melbourne on Saturday 14 March 2015.
