ProScout was established in 2016 as a scouting consulting company, focused on team analysis and player scouting. We collaborate with clubs, coaches, players, scouts, and media.
In addition to this component, we have a strong concern with the educational issues, seeking to bring the public closer to the game. We intend to promote discussion about technical and tactical concepts and with that develop the passion for the game even further.

values and vision
One of ProScout’s concerns is the dissemination of knowledge related to the areas of scouting and analysis. A more educated public in these areas will increase the demand on clubs and players in the game, which in turn will have a positive impact on their development.
PROXIMITY TO THE GAME
At ProScout we have the commitment to restrict ourselves to the game within the playing pitch and in what really impacts the result of the game. You can count on a unbiased, direct speech, focused on the gameplay.
PROMOTION OF DISCUSSION
Linked to the educational component, we find it essential to promote the debate about what happens on the pitch and the decisions made by the football departments of the clubs. We believe that a healthy debate, with constructive criticism, leads to an overall increase in the clubs’ performance.
PASSION FOR THE GAME
It is the passion for the game that moves us. Therefore, it is our belief that we have the duty to treat it with the respect it deserves and it is our obligation to bring content that is as substantiated and detailed as possible and with total impartiality.
