Club Players Register Football.com PROfiles at Beach Soccer Championships
Hundreds of youth soccer players claimed their FREE PROfiles on Football.com at the Beach Soccer Championships in Oceanside, California.
More than 70,000 beach soccer fans - and 3,700 players - attended the epic weekend.
And Football.com was right in the middle of all the action by the main stadium with players and fans from around the world visiting the exciting new platform’s guest booth.
Youth players of all ages were shown on the spot how to set up an exclusive PROfile showcasing their soccer career so far - enabling them to keep stats, highlight videos, action photos, freestyle footage and news articles all in one place for any college recruiting scout to see.
For many young club players, the opportunity was just too good to resist. Rather than wait for their clubs to sign up, they registered with the help of Football.com’s tournament staff to set up their own exclusive FREE pages
“It was great to be part of such a fantastic event,” said Nicole Wahab, President of Football.com.
“We were excited to see hundreds of kids claiming their free PROfile and beginning their journey of highlighting their soccer career and getting in front of schools scouts and sponsors.
“There was a great response to Football.com creating a new, safe online home for the youth soccer community.”
As well as members from many of SoCal’s leading youth clubs, beach soccer pros from Japan, Brazil and Barbados stopped by at the busy booth to sign up for PROfiles.
The Football.com staff was also giving away free soccer and beach soccer balls, headbands, banners and thunder sticks.
Dr. Wahab commented that “The Tournament staff was amazing and I loved seeing resourceful kids using our soccer ball for pro autographs.”
