About this trip

Crazy about soccer? Have you always dreamt about playing professionally? This is your opportunity! With our Professional Soccer Experience you will be able to train with a pro team, play at least one friendly game, and if you are good enough, you will get scouted and signed!

During your stay in Costa Rica, you will train with FC Desamparados. This is our professional club which is playing in Costa Rica's second division. This team is one of the youngest in the league, and its mission is to develop players and sell them internationally. FC Desamparados is part of the Futbol Consultants family, which owns more than 10 youth academies around the country, and has been developing some of Costa Rica’s best talent. During the last two years, Futbol Consultants has caught the attention of the media, since we have had more players in the U20, U17, and U15 national teams than some of the biggest and historic clubs in the country.


When booking, we recommend coming from Sunday to Sunday. This way, you will be able to train Monday through Friday + a game during the week or on Saturday.
