Nike Most Wanted, a unique global talent search program that gives amateur footballers the opportunity to prove themselves on an elite stage, will be hosted in Riyadh (KSA) this year for the very first time.

The one-of-a-kind global platform gives amateur, unsigned footballers from around the world an opportunity to earn a place in the Nike Academy at St. George’s Park, the home of the England National Team, and develop their skills with support from elite coaches and mentors from the top of the sport.

Since 2010, the program which was previously called The Chance, has given thousands of young footballers access to elite training opportunities, and 39 Nike Academy alumni have gone on to earn professional contracts.

This year, Nike Middle East is proud to offer Saudi footballers with the lifelong dream of going pro the opportunity to realize their dreams with increased access to the program and through the Nike Football App.

The search for the three most talented young footballers in Saudi Arabia is now on. All passionate footballers who are up for battling it out on the pitch to make it to the final three should apply to participate in Nike Most Wanted before March 5, 2015.

The Nike Football Middle East Facebook page and Twitter account are the local community hubs, where passionate players can find updates about the program.
