FC Utrecht 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 🙂
Football Club Utrecht is a Dutch professional football club based in Utrecht, Holland. The club competes in the Eredivisie, the top flight of Eredivisie football.
FC Utrecht Youth Development System
The FC Utrecht Academy is one of the best football schools in the Netherlands. Players such as Sean Klaiber, Giovanni Troupée, Bart Ramselaar, Sofyan Amrabat, Gyrano Kerk, Yassin Ayoub, Mike van der Hoorn, Edson Braafheid and Michel Vorm received their youth education at the academy of FC Utrecht.
Initiative, Forward-looking, Technical, Gutsy, Passion and Combat. Those are the characteristics that describe the FC Utrecht Academy, and in particular the way the teams play. These concepts form the DNA of the youth academy of the FC from the Dom City.
An important pillar under the FC Utrecht Academy is the so-called RAC Talent Development Central Netherlands . This is a partnership between regional amateur clubs and FC Utrecht. The project aims to identify and select talented players for FC Utrecht’s youth academy. There, the talents can develop further in a professional environment. All with the aim of later moving on to the first team of FC Utrecht. More than fifty associations have already joined and almost half of all new players in FC Utrecht’s youth academy come from RAC clubs.
YOUTH SCOUTING | RECRUITMENT
RAC Talent Development Central Netherlands plays a prominent role in youth scouting within FC Utrecht. The affiliated regional amateur clubs agree that they will inform FC Utrecht about talents who play football within their youth academy. Youth Scouts watch these players and assess whether they are invited to a test match. If the technical staff thinks that the young players have the level to play football within the youth department of FC Utrecht, they are offered this opportunity. Amateur associations receive a financial compensation for every player of twelve years and older that FC Utrecht includes in its youth academy for the benefit of their own youth academy.
