Since the company was founded in 2002, PSC has grown from strength to strength as a prominent company that is deeply involved within the professional football industry.
Many companies have tried to replicate us since our pro soccer combines and tours began in 2009 and claim credit for our placements. Yet none have the same long lasting embedded links and contacts in the professional soccer industry which have driven us to be the most successful North American company for placing players across Europe, America and Asia. Since 2011 we have announced over 200 success stories, all of which are listed on this website.
We are “soccer people” who are deeply rooted within the industry and since the company was established in 2002 we have continued to work with major clubs, coaches and players from the English Premier League, Major League Soccer and numerous professional leagues around the world.
In addition to working with players we are UEFA Licensed Match agents and have been responsible for arranging games and tours for some of the top teams around the world, including Valencia, Everton, Leicester City, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and a host of other English, European and MLS teams.
