Life Style Sports have announced a search for undiscovered young Irish footballers to win a trial at the prestigious Nike Academy in London.
"The Dream" aims to find the most talented young footballing talent in Ireland and have them take part in a series of trials. The overall winner of the competition will get a one year trial at the Nike Academy.
This is not just an ordinary trial as 30% of the academy's graduates have gone on to sign professional contracts. Celtic prospect Tom Rogic graduated from the academy in 2011 and has gone on to play 15 times for the Scottish champions.
To enter The Dream, players must send a football CV to [email protected] before midnight on Sunday August 17.
A shortlist of the submissions will attend a trial in front of the Academy coaches on August 21 in Dublin at a location that will be announced shortly.
