Club warn of bogus academy trials

The club would like to make people aware of bogus websites and emails offering trials with the Manchester United Academy.

The Academy never send emails directly to players inviting them for trials and the club do not ask players or their parents to make any sort of payments to enable their son to have a trial. If you have been asked to make a payment to obtain a place at a trial for the Manchester United Academy, the trials are not authorised by Manchester United and consequently provide no route to a place at our Academy.

United have a network of scouts throughout the UK, Europe and beyond who continually monitor young players and the club receive regular reports on their progress. Trials are by invitation only after a young player has been recommended by an official club scout.

You can get more information on how our scouting system operates and other Academy rules and regulations in the Academy section and find out more about authorised Manchester United Soccer Schools courses on the MUSS website.
