Soccer Gear Industry Today And Where to Look

Now soccer or football as we call it in Europe is a very popular sport. Throughout Europe we have some of the best academy’s that train kids with the skills we see soccer players have in the top teams. FC Barcelona’s first team players are a good example on well-educated players and how far the teams can get with focus on youth academies.

But also scouts play a very important role in spotting and convincing young players to move to the soccer academies and play for their teams. Normally this is a process where the player’s parents are involved and in some cases they move with their son to follow he’s career.

A success story would probably be mentioning Lionel Messi, who plays for FC Barcelona. He was brought to the club’s youth academy La Masia in an age of 13. But also other clubs are well known for their youth programs. Ajax Amsterdam does great work for their youngsters. Who does not remember them winning the European Champions League in 1995 against AC Milan?

Players like Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids, Patrick Kluivert and the brothers Ronald and Frank De Boer are just a few to mention from the team that beat AC Milan in 1995. But also stars like Johan Cruijff, Marco Van Basten and Frank Rijkaard came from that academy.

Today the soccer industry is a huge business. Billions of dollars are spent every year to buy the latest Jerseys for peoples favorite teams, and the equipment to play soccer gets better and better. Adidas in particular is taking the soccer boots to the next level. With their release of AdiZero F50 who Lionel Messi plays in, they have released a light weighted boot, just 5.9 ounces. This shoe is made for acceleration and definitely help Messi in he’s explosive acceleration. But also Nike is inventing great soccer cleats. Models like Vapor one and Talon Elite they show Adidas that they are not alone on the market. Cristiano Ronaldo and he’s Nike Mercurial Superfly III is considered as one of the best cleats as well. As in every other industry today there is huge competition to make the best soccer gear.

Be sure to research and look for reviews on the gear before deciding what to buy. There is a lot of different sites testing and reviewing the equipment on the market today. Hopefully this article has been inspiring and helpful for you to choose the right equipment. Good luck, and happy playing!
