In the past five years, over 33 players were invited to various trials in England, France, Italy, and Croatia based on their strong showing in the ID Camp.  In 2017, a GK was invited to trial at Le Havre (France).  He then signed an agreement to join the Academy on a full-time basis (

ANB Futbol has invited various University coaches from Canada & the United States to join the camp in case there are players who are interested in showcasing their abilities to these scouts.

“In 2018, we are looking at building from previous years, especially on the female side, as we have invited the woman’s program head of formation from Olympique Lyonnais.  Additionally, with the success of signing a player who was spotted at this ID Camp last year, we hope for scouts to see even more talented young Canadian players,” said Bassam Naim, Academy Director.

ID Camp registration is limited, based on a first come, first serve basis.
