The German Way

Train, Play & Get Discovered

Since 2012, GFL Soccer has chosen players to train and play against German teams, such as FC Bayern Munich, TSV Munich 1860, Fortuna Dusseldorf, FC Cologne and Fortuna Koln among many others.

Our program identifies talented players through a series of soccer camps, ID Clinics, scouted at games and tournaments or recommended by well established and respected coaches.  These athletes train together in preparation to play against Bundesliga academy teams and experience the German style of play.

Many of our players are watched by Bundesliga scouts during these games and that’s part of our intentions, to expose talented players to these professional teams. Some of our athletes are named players of interest, some are invited to try outs with professional teams and others, like Stephen Rudderham from Lutz, are signed to play professionally.  We are proud of the players we select and every year we see an increased level of play and more players noticed by the scouting teams.  We offer a unique opportunity that might turn into something special for talented soccer players and their families.

Germany Select Team News

Exciting stories about our teams and players

Coby Atkinson – USA – Tryout with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim

A 2000 striker, Coby was the spark of the US team showing speed, agility and strength.  Never afraid of contact and always heavily defended, always managed to dominate his adversaries. 

Nicholas Lukens – USA – Tryout with MSV Duisburg

A 2000 goalkeeper, this 6’1 goalie dominated with his combination of height, speed and flexibility.  Nicholas was fortunate to be invited to tryout along with Duisburg’s first team.

Ian Flores – USA – Tryout with Munich 1860

A 2000 box-to-box center midfielder trusted to establish game’s tempo. Caught the eye of the scouts with his pass completion percentage, solid defense, speed and aggressiveness. 

Jonathan Jimenez – Costa Rica/USA

The experience of a lifetime

Imagine one day going to school, then doing your shift at your part time job at a fast food restaurant and then on to practice.  Every day.  Imagine getting selected to go to Germany and being invited to watch a pro game along with 40,000 fans.  Imagine being invited by that same team to a one day try out that ended up being a 5 day opportunity to showcase your unique skills.

Could you imagine?  Could this be actually happening?

It did.  Through GFL, Jonathan Jimenez, originally from Costa Rica but now living in the Sun Coast is one of those athletes that might make his dreams come true.  With a possible offer from MSV Duisburg, Jonathan is well on his way to join Steve Rudderham as the second player to be signed professionally thanks to the exposure provided by GFL.  Dreams do come true.
