Betis Academy on Tour – the accelerated opportunity with TFA

Showcasing the talents to the world, thousands of players will participate in this competition that aims to help talented athletes realize their maximum potential.

The Football Academy (TFA) has joined forces with top local clubs in Iceland, Norway, Columbia, Egypt, and UAE to showcase the best football talent from all over the world through the “Betis Academy on Tour” program to give football players the chance to showcase their talent in front of scouts and coaches and stand a chance to play at the Real Betis Club’s Academy. The partnership with Real Betis  Academy and elite youth soccer clubs across five continents will provide top players from the Under-18 age groups an accelerated expressway to the professional level.

‘Every coach hopes to see players achieve their potential by elevating their talent and motivating them, but the absence of a path means that a lot of talented athletes drop out of the game. With ‘Betis on Tour’ we hope to pave the journey of the best soccer players so that they can follow their dreams of playing the game at a professional level. Our goals are to simply identify top talent, provide them with the best guidance and 1-on-1 training, and then give them a genuine chance at a professional opportunity – Ali El Jishi, Head Coach at TFA.”
