Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of

I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.

Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and was born.

This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.

That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).

This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Club Brugge KV Youth Development System

Club Brugge KV Youth Academy


Our Academy got a total make-over and became Club NXT since the beginning of July. A new name and contemporary branding that makes Club NXT a true lifestyle brand. NXT will be the symbiosis between a top sports environment where performance is paramount with a lifestyle youth culture where our youth players can be themselves and where other young people can identify with. 


Club NXT is above all an experience environment where young guests can develop themselves to make their dream come true: become a professional football athlete and be able to win individual and collective prizes. All this in an environment where they can and may make their own choices. An environment that is part of the Club culture in which players are individually guided in a professional setting.


Because it is especially important that young people find their own way. They map out their own trajectory that crosses the path of other players, other young people and coaches. They also become aware that they have to make choices to realize their ambition. The Club NXT youth can have a positive influence on others in their environment. Our coaches are their facilitators who really know, understand and guide players. 


NXT players are proactive on and off the field. They are able to think along and this with the personality to express themselves, each in his own way. They take matters into their own hands, alone or collectively. In addition, they take the responsibility to develop their qualities to the maximum. NXT players make mistakes, learn from them and move on. Thus, they become a better version of themselves every day. They have fun and work hard. NXT belongs to the players themselves.

Club NXT will work with the U23 in 1B in the 2020-2021 season. All home games are played in the Daknam Stadium. Click here for the full Club NXT calendar!

Club Brugge KV History

It is one of the most decorated clubs in Belgian football, having been crowned Belgian league champions 16 times, second only to major rivals Anderlecht. The club shares the Jan Breydel Stadium with city rival Cercle Brugge, with whom they compete in the Bruges derby. Anderlecht have won more league titles than any other team in Belgium.

Club Brugge has a rich history and has had a lot of success in European football throughout the course of that history. They have made it to two European finals and two European semi-finals. Team Brugge is the only Belgian club to have ever competed in the final of the European Cup, the tournament that served as the antecedent to the present UEFA Champions League.

They did so in 1978 but were defeated by Liverpool in the championship match. They were defeated by the same competitors in the UEFA Cup Final in 1976 as well. Club Brugge now owns the record for the most consecutive appearances in the UEFA Europa League (20), the record for the most victories in the Belgian Cup (11), and the record for the most victories in the Belgian Super Cup (14). (15).


Jan Breydel Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Sint-Andries, Bruges, Belgium. Both Club Brugge and Cercle Brugge, two of the most successful association football clubs in Belgium, call the stadium that is owned by the city their home field. The majority of its use is for football events, which can range in price from €5 to €60 per seat every game. In 1975, construction began on the stadium. There are presently 29,042 seats available.

It was named after Jan Breydel, who was a leader in the uprising known as the Bruges Matins, which eventually resulted in the Battle of the Golden Spurs. Before 1999 and the Championship for the European Football Championship in 2000, the venue was known as the Olympiastadion, which is Dutch for the Olympic stadium, and it had 18,000 seats. During the month of December 2015, the surface of the field was updated with a hybrid grass called Mixto Hybrid Grass Technology, which is a product that is entirely made in Italy. A hybrid grass is a grass that contains both natural and artificial grass.



Bart Verhaeghe (born in 1965) is a Belgian entrepreneur. In 2011, he was elected to the position of president of Club Brugge, and the following year, he became the club’s main shareholder.

In addition to that, he is currently the chairman of the project developer UPLACE and was previously the vice-chairman of the Royal Belgian Football Association. Additionally, in 2006, he was one of the co-founders of the independent think tank Itinera. At Itinera, he oversees operations as the chairman of the Board of Directors.
