Nike's talent search

Pep Guardiola...looking for talents

Nike has launched the 2012 edition of ‘The Chance’ – A unique global football talent search that will give the one opportunity for young amateur footballers from around the world to prove themselves on an elite stage and take their game to the highest level.

In Malaysia, the search for ‘The Chance’ representative has already begun. We are on a hunt for 5 of the best amateur footballers and give them a chance to be spotted by a world-class team of coaches and scouts to further their career. The players will go on to compete in the regional finals held at Jakarta, Indonesia, where only 1 of them will be selected to represent Malaysia during the global finals. 

The best 100 players are chosen from around the world and will then travel to the global final held in FC Barcelona’s famed youth academy. There, they will experience what all professional footballers experience from facilities, coaching to nutrition and fitness.The best 16 footballers chosen from the global finals will experience the ultimate training tour as their reward; facing some of the most renowned academy teams in world football such as Manchester United and a U.S. Youth National Team during a once-in-a-lifetime four week tour.

Players can register themselves and their teams by building a 'team page' on The Chance app which is accessed via the Nike Football Malaysia facebook page (
