Tips On How To Pursue A Career In Football

✒ First you need to think of what you have to forego or leave inoder to pursue a football career. It might be that you have to drop out of school. Think also of a back up plan, that is what you may fall back to if your pursuit of a football career doesn’t work out or come out successful. You need to learn any trade or acquire any educational certificate to fall back on, in case of failure.

Critically think of it, is football truly your best option in life, when you rate it on your comparative advantage scale. Also ask yourself if you possess such outstanding football talent and skills that will enable you succeed at the highest level or even lowest level. Of course to answer these questions effectively, you need to have graduated from a football academy or currently playing for an amateur club and your coaches may have commended you for your efforts and acknowledged you as the best.

✒ Second, you need to make a plan. A plan keeps you grounded, focused and helps you not to get distracted by several other wasteful desires or attractive things. Decide on weather to start-off your career in Nigeria or overseas. I’d advice, if you don’t have funds to pursue your career abroad or you require further grooming or training to develop your true value, you need to start from any of the Nigerian pro leagues or academy leagues.

In whatever decision you make, you’ll need someone to introduce you to a club, that’s probably the best option. If you need to get the attention and interest of a Player’s Agent or a Club’s Scout to introduce you to a club is another right step you might want to consider.

Note that you don’ t need a Player’s Agent to introduce you to a club in Nigeria. You just need to get the attention of the Club’s Scout or someone connected to the club. In an extreme case, if you feel you are that skillful with extra abilities, you can take the bull by the horn and go for a club’s recruitment screening all by yourself, you may get a chance to prove yourself.

✒ Third, you need to develop your Marketing strategies and promo-tools to get the attention and interest of Agents, Scouts and Clubs’ management who are looking for talents like yours.
If you do well playing in a Nigerian pro-club or academy, you can be lucky to get a call-up to the national team and then your value could really scale up to get the attention of Agents and top flight clubs in Europe or some big club in Africa.

✒ Lastly, you need to get a Sport Marketing outfit to start promoting you or do it yourself if you can. Upload your CV for proof, Promo-video clips on Youtube, Dugout or Vine and start sending the links to Agents and Scouts you can contact and see who is interested.

Ask other pro-footballers you know or are close to, to introduce you to their Agent or club scout who needs talents like yours. Check out contacts of some Nigerian licensed Agents you can reach one-on-one locally or pitch them virtually. Also make attempt to get interest other foreign Agents and Scouts and you just might be surprised to see that they need you.


Starting a professional football career might not be an easy one especially from here in Nigeria. But if you are well talented and skilled and hardworking, certainly you can come out successful. Read the article again and take decisive steps to start and build your career in football.
