What professionals are saying
FC Midtjylland (Denmark))
"I like American players because they have a very good attitude they play with their heart and they want to listen and they want to learn so it is nice to work with them. AX is a good opportunity for these players to be seen and a chance to start a career in Europe."
FK Jerv (Norway)
"In Europe you get 50 emails a day and you get videos but you never know the level. I don’t know one coach who would say yes in Norway to a player with just a video. At the AX tryouts I know the level of the player and if they are ready for Europe because I can see them and coach them directly.”
"On a video you always see the great saves of a GK but at the AX tryouts you get to see everything. The mistakes, the positioning, if they are in balance, how they catch the ball, their coordination, and these are the factors you need to see to decide if they are ready to bring in on trial."
Thisted FC (Denmark)
"I think the AX tryouts have been a fantastic experience for me and also for the players. It is a very good scouting event because of the organization and the preparation has been very good. It is a great chance to find new players from America and see the level over here."
Jonas Dal Andersen
FC Fredericia (Denmark)
"For me as a coach it is a very big advantage to have seen the players at the AX tryout. Here I can work with them, coach them, and see how they are as a person so when I go back to Denmark I know for sure if that is a player that fits into my team.”
FC Roskilde (Denmark)
"I think the AX tryouts are a great place to find players. I probably have two players I would like to see in Denmark for test training so it has been a good trip for me. One central defender I have seen in Austin and a left back in North Carolina."
Stenungsunds IF (Sweden)
"The tryouts in NY and DC were great, AX is very professional. It is a great set up, 3 days is perfect, you are really able to get to know the players. It is a great chance for me to see players abroad who can be interesting for my team. "
FC Trollhättan (Sweden)
"The AX tryout is a very good chance for these boys to show if they are good enough to be in the higher league in Europe. I am interested in 3 players, maybe I take 1 player directly to 3 month contract. Very well organized, so in a short time in 3 days they can show if they are a good football player, it is easy to see.”
Skiljebo SK (Sweden)
"The AX tryouts are a big chance, we are here because we think there is a lot of talent in the USA. When you get to coach the players directly you can really learn a lot. Over 3 days there is no doubt that you can see what players are ready for European football, what players need more training, and guys who are not ready of course."
FC Cincinnati (USA)
"It's a great platform to come out and showcase your abilities to local teams in the US like myself and also international programs."
Odense Boldklub (Denmark)
"I think the tryouts with AX Soccer Tours are a great opportunity for European coaches and scouts to see the talent of the USA.”
Real Monarchs (USA)
"It is a great opportunity for younger lads and out of contract players to showcase their talents to us coaches in the USL and clubs in Europe."
LA Galaxy II
“AX is great way to be seen by European coaches. My goal has always been to play overseas and to go to Texas and have a Danish Superliga coach tell me I could play at that level in Europe.. it’s just priceless.”
"The tryout in Florida with AX was a great opportunity to be watched by European coaches. It is real, the coaches are there working with you directly, and it gives you a great chance to get signed by European clubs."
NCAA Div 1
“The AX Tryout was really well done and having the GK coach and getting his insight was extremely beneficial. The level of play was unreal compared to other combines I have been to. It was a great opportunity.”
NCAA Div 1
“The AX tryouts are a great opportunity to get some looks by some top level coaches. Never had the opportunity to play in front of European coaches before so it was a really unique experience to be able to work with them up close.”
NCAA Div 1
"The format of the AX combine, I think it is really well set up. You cant be playing 11v11s every single day. I think in this environment with a training session and the coaching you can really get seen in all aspects of the game."
NCAA Div 1
“The AX combine was really enjoyable, you get a lot of chances to get seen by different coaches from all over Europe. Ive been to other combines and this was by far the best opportunity for me. It is a chance that you really can’t get anywhere else in America.”
NCAA Div III
“The whole setup at AX is really professional and a great opportunity to come out and play in front of European coaches to try and earn a contract.”
College of Charleston
NCAA Div I
"It was a great experience with AX playing in front of all these coaches from different countries in Europe. Each day the level increased and by the end you could really get a feel for what the coaches wanted and what they were looking for."
NCAA Div II
"From the training session to the games everything was run very smoothly. Four European coaches so you know you got eyes on you at all times. AX Soccer Tours is definitely the number one program for getting scouted."
Major League Soccer
“AX Soccer Tours provided me with the opportunity to start my professional career in Europe. I wouldn't be where I am today without their help.”
Sweden Div 2
“I am thrilled to have signed in Sweden. Had I not attended the Maryland tryout with AX I have no idea where I would be in my footballing career. I would probably still be stuck in the Cosmopolitan league back in NY.”
Sweden Div 1
