Angers SCO Academy Recruitment | Trials/Tryouts

Like any professional club, Angers SCO relies on its recruitment unit made up of Philippe Leclerc and Xavier Dudoit, to strengthen its workforce at the start of each season. Whether it is among young people or professionals, recruiting is a long-term job, observation, carried out behind the scenes, in all discretion,

At the level of the Training Center, the only goal is to choose the player who potentially, one day – maybe !!! – will become a professional player.

Since President Saïd Chabane took control of the SCO, in December 2011 he has never ceased to insist that his project for the “Black & White” club will be based on training. And it is clear that he kept his word with the exit from the ground in February 2014 of the superb La Baumette Training & Training Center!

Throughout its existence, the French football club has maintained a visual identity that is mostly in line with what is expected of it. The team’s moniker is “The Black and Gold,” so naturally, its logo had to incorporate some vertical black stripes at some point.


Another characteristic shared by all iterations of the club’s emblem is a robust and pointed geometry, which has always been present but has evolved in terms of its outline.
