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 🙂

Mission statement of the performance center

The promotion of young talent forms an important basis for the actions of our club and is intended to ensure long-term success.

For up-and-coming talent, this means following an individual path with us on the basis of our awareness of norms and values ​​and being part of our holistic, innovative and specific promotion of young talent.

In order to be able to pursue this path purposefully and successfully, we take responsibility for the holistic development of our talents and are aware of our role as role models. We always focus on our core sports, social and school skills.

Our goal is to introduce our own young players to professional football and to develop responsible and independent personalities.

Holistic training approach:
The training of our talents is geared towards promoting and challenging particularly talented young players in terms of holistic development . This is based on the following three basic pillars:

  • Soccer
  • Education (school & job)
  • personality

In addition to optimal sporting support, our talents should also receive the best possible school education in order to create a secure and stable starting situation with which they can shape their own future independently . In this context, we strive for each individual talent to achieve the highest possible school leaving certificate.

RB Leipzig History

In its first year of competition, 2009–10, RB Leipzig won the NOFV-Oberliga Süd (V) and was consequently elevated to the Regionalliga Nord as the league’s winner (IV). RB Leipzig was the first team since the inception of the 3. Liga to win promotion to the 2. Bundesliga (II) after only one season of play in the 3. Liga. RB Leipzig won the 2012–13 Regionalliga Nordost season without suffering a single loss and was promoted to the 3. Liga (III). RB Leipzig then finished the 2013–14 3. Liga season as the runners-up and was promoted to the 2. Bundesliga (II).

With a victory of two goals to zero over Karlsruher SC on May 8, 2016, RB Leipzig ensured that they would play in the Bundesliga during the 2016–17 season. The following season, RB Leipzig finished in second place in the Bundesliga to earn a spot in the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League.

The club achieved club history by competing in their first Champions League semi-final on August 18, 2020, although they were ultimately eliminated by Paris Saint-Germain, a team from France. As a result of the fact that the only investor in the club is the energy drink business Red Bull, the name of the club is shortened to “Die Roten Bullen,” which translates to “The Red Bulls.”


Red Bull Arena, also known as Zentralstadion, is a football venue that can be found in Leipzig, which is located in the state of Saxony, Germany. In addition to sporting events, music concerts have been held at this venue, which is the largest football stadium in what was then East Germany.

It was opened in 2004, and it is currently used as the home stadium for the first-division team RB Leipzig. Prior to that, however, the stadium was utilized by FC Sachsen Leipzig from the time it was opened until 2009.

In accordance with the laws governing sponsorship by UEFA, the stadium will be referred to as the RB Arena for all European fixtures. Approximately 42,000 people can be seated here.
