In Norway and Chile, almost 200 professional footballers from ten countries are ready to show their skills in one of the two FIFPro Tournaments. They all hope to sign a new contract at a professional football club.

 

FIFPro invites clubs, scouts and technical directors to see the participating players in action during the so-called FIFPro Tournaments (tournaments for professional footballers looking for a new contract).

 

It is up to the players to show their best in an effort to find a new professional football club. Approximately fifty percent of participants from previous FIFPro Tournaments managed to sign a new contract.
