Advanced Online Systems Take European Soccer Scouting into Next Generation

As the search for young cheap talent in European Soccer continues to heat up, a new wave of sophisticated online-scouting systems have revolutionized the way clubs track potential superstars from all over the globe.

The Scout7Xeatre.tv system was released last year and provides clubs with player information and broadcast quality video footage. The Scout7 database covers more than 110,000 players from more than 160 leagues and 127 international squads, with 30 correspondents around the world constantly updating the system.

Lee Jamison, the managing director of Scout7 expects half of the top-flight clubs in England to be signed up within six months.
