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 🙂

Elche CF History

Elche was established in 1923 as the consequence of a merger of all of the town’s teams. The club entered the league system in 1929, reaching the Segunda División in 1934 and La Liga in 1959. In 1963–64, Elche finished sixth in La Liga. In 1969, it finished in second place in the Copa del Rey competition. During the 2014–15 season, it was the first and only club in the history of La Liga to be demoted for failing to pay its tax bills, which led to the team’s relegation. Following promotions to La Liga Smartbank and La Liga in the two most recent seasons, Elche was relegated to the second tier of Spanish football for the 2020-21 campaign.


A stadium known as the Estadio Martinez Valero can be found in the city of Elx in the Spanish province of Alacant, which is part of the Valencian Community. Elche CF, a team that is participating in the LaLiga tournament at the moment, calls this stadium their home field. The late Manuel Martinez Valero, who served as president of the club, was honored with this name before he passed away. It was the site of the most lopsided victory in a World Cup final and also served as the venue for the championship game of the Copa del Rey in 2003. There have been both friendly matches and competitive qualifiers played by the Spanish national football team in that location. The field dimensions at the stadium are the greatest that can be found elsewhere in Europe.

The Martnez Valero Stadium is the 12th largest stadium in Spain and the 2nd largest stadium in the Valencian community. It has a total seating capacity of 33,732 people.
