English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion FC will be once again coming to Malta in July 2012 to run a Professional Opportunities Course alongside Coach Education company Premier Skills and Footy 4 U. The purpose of these courses is to scout and select players to take up apprentice professional contracts at the club.
The Professional Opportunities Courses provide opportunities for players between the ages of 7 and 17 to train at professional level, be assessed and have a unique opportunity to be scouted by an English Premier League club without leaving the country.
WBA regards the Malta youth and schools football programs as high quality development schemes that are producing young players who could successfully play the game in the UK.
