Millwall FC Tryouts & Club Guide: History, Stadium, Players, and More!
Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.
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 fcscout.com 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 🙂
Millwall FC is an English professional football club based in Bermondsey, South East London, England. The club competes in the EFL Championship, the second tier of English football.

The Academy’s Under 9s-15s combine regular training with a games programme against both Category 1 and 2 clubs.

Millwall FC Recruitment Trials
The recruitment department is integral to the success of Millwall’s Academy in finding talented boys who can be developed into first team professional footballers. The Academy’s dedicated and professional recruitment team regularly watch local youth football matches, not only in South East London, but across the whole of the South East of the country. Many boys are successfully introduced into the Academy programme through this pathway each season, usually after completing a six-week trial.
As well as contacting the recruitment team with full details of a youngster’s playing history, it is also possible for talented children to be spotted through our Football in the Community scheme.
To recommend a player to the recruitment team, please send a letter with full details of the boy’s playing history, along with details of forthcoming games, venues and kick-off times. Send in as much information about his playing including fixture list if they currently play for a club, to:
