ISM – International Scouting Center offers the opportunity to the players coming from all over the world to experience the Italian Soccer Training with Italian licensed coaches and then to be signed with our technical partners and other professional clubs.

ISM – International Scouting Center is created from the experience gained by its managers from 1998 to 2005 at the A.C. Perugia Youth Academy. Back in 2005 the A.C. Perugia (Serie A) project counted on 138 affiliated Clubs with a network of 80 scouts and 20 area managers responsible for overviewing the whole national territory.
Professional soccer players such as Gennaro Gattuso (A.C. Milan), Marco Storari (Juventus F.C.) and Andrea Ranocchia (Internazionale F.C.) grew at the A.C. Perugia Academy during those years.

From 2010 to 2015 ISM cooperated with Empoli F.C. and represented the Italian Club on scouting abroad. From 2015 ISM cooperates with several European Professional Clubs.

Since 2022, ISM Academy extended the technical cooperation to other Professional Football Clubs becoming the Scouting Center and Home for development of promising football players.

Even after 20 years of existence, the core concept has not changed; finding the rarest football talents in the world and polishing them to shine like the diamond on and off the field.

Our team can provide all the necessary support to soccer players worldwide. We can assist players in all relations with the club and sponsors during the signing of a new contract or during the renegotiation of the contract.
