The difference between PSC Soccer Academy and AX Soccer Tours
Throughout the past year, we have had many players inquire as for the difference between ourselves PSC Soccer and a company called AX Soccer. We are more than happy to transparently explain these differences to players. We here at PSC have been running combines for the past 7 years and for 4 of those years AX Soccer recruited players and sent them to our events to showcase professionally. As of January 2017 AX, by their choice, no longer work with us and do not send players to our events.
Our agency has an excellent reputation and has been in the professional game since it’s formation in 2002 working with clubs, players and coaches from across the Premier League, MLS, USL and European league with great success. You will see on AX Soccer’s website a list of clubs they claim to have worked with – 95% of the club badges are all teams that have been part of PSC’s network through our combines, tours or player placement through the PSC Agency this last 7 years and have no relationship with AX Soccer, most of which would not know the name AX Soccer if presented to them. For example, Manchester City’s badge is present on that page. PSC have placed players with Manchester City, and played showcase games against them. AX Soccer have had no involvement with the club. Since 2017, AX soccer are now running their own events and have disappointingly continued to use PSC’s content, success stories, and hard work, to sell these events.
If you visit their success story page, you will notice almost all of their success stories are also listed on PSC’s Success story page so we would like to openly show how these players were placed and their relationship with PSC, to prove, that they were a product of PSC’s contacts and efforts, and not AX Soccer. Some of these players may have been recruited to attend an event by AX Soccer, but it was undoubtedly, and unquestionably, PSC’s staff, network and contacts which led to them signing, or trialing, professionally.
