Nike’s Most Wanted: Talent Search for Young Footballers around the World.


The program that plucks young players from obscurity and makes their dreams of becoming professional footballers a reality is back for a fourth season.  Nike Most Wanted – previously known as Nike’s The Chance – gives amateur, unsigned footballers from around the world an opportunity to earn a place in The Nike Academy at St. George’s Park, the home of the England National Team, and showcase their skills in front of elite coaches and mentors from the top of the sport.

Since 2010, the program has provided elite training opportunities to thousands of talented footballers, and more than 20 alumni — including

  • Tom Rogic (Celtic Football Club),
  • Bruno Covas (Santos F.C.),
  • Dominik Boettcher (Hamburg),
  • Abdul Waris (F.C. Spartak Moscow), and
    David “Titi” Accam (Helsingborgs IF) — have made their professional dream a reality.

For the 2014 Nike Most Wanted offers even more players the opportunity to realize their dreams with increased access to the program through the Nike Football App.

Application Process:

  • Starting Aug.12, players in more than 30 countries can access the opportunity to participate in Most Wanted through the Nike Football app and
  • Register for an invitation to local tryouts held throughout September and October.
  • After these tryouts, 40-60 players will be selected for the Nike Most Wanted Global Showcase final, where they will battle to earn a spot at The Nike Academy at St. George’s Park, the home of the England National Team.

Selection Process:

  • Players are selected based upon a variety of criteria including technical skills and determination, and are invited to participate in local trials. 
  • At these local trials, coaches and professional footballers will evaluate the participating talent based on speed, technique, pitch intelligence and conditioning.

At The Nike Academy, players experience world-class facilities, elite coaching, and input from nutritionists, psychologists and fitness trainers.  This elite program is based in the U.K. at the FA Centre of Excellence at St. Georges Park.

  2. It feels great to be able to do what you are good at naturally. Talent in soccer exists but the problem is that it is under utilised globally. I am not only a soccer fan but I have seen what I can deliver on the pitch . however I have not had a chance to get in the limelight of soccer not only to develop my talent but also share what my play. With this platform, a dream can be realized.
