Do you want to be a scout and learn from the best?


Who do you think is the best player?

Having something to say is not difficult. But having an opinion to share, that is based of a platform of knowledge of football players, teams and leagues. That doesn’t come easy, it requires hard work, a direction and people with knowledge, that are willing to share their knowledge, opinions and scouting tools.

We have learned, through our experience in football, that finding a way in to football and scouting can be difficult.

This is why, we have created ScoutLaB, a scouting education platform, where people interested in scouting at all levels, can go and receive scouting education, either through our paid scout education program or through our free scout mentor program.

The difference in the free and the paid education programs is quite easy to explain. With the paid programs, people can follow a scout education program, at a pace that suits them. We give recommendations for each education module, that is there to make sure that people get the most out of each education module and each scouting education programs. 

The free scout mentoring program is quite straight forward, people taking part in these programs, have to apply to take part, they have to do an intro task, to show what current level they have and they need to do a minimum of games per week throughout the free scout mentoring program.

For us the free scout mentoring programs is an investment, an investment in to identifying future scouts, that we can employ at Mellemmand or that we can refer to our partner clubs.

What people say?

For me the scouting internship was a great opportunity to develop my knowledge and skills as a scout. I learned about how to look at players from different levels and different age groups. While at the same time, I learned so much from the other scouts who were participating in the program. For example about how to find the hidden gems within a team performance and different opinions with good discussions. And maybe the most important; Mellemmand is really there to help you as a scout. They give feedback and give you the opportunity to work in the real world of football when you show off you can bring some quality!

“I can highly recommend participating in the ScoutLab course with Kenneth Santa and as either an entry into the football world or as an addition to ones existing knowledge and skills. Not only was I taught how scouting at a professional level is being done and the many different aspects to take into consideration depending on the circumstances of different clubs, but there was also a lot of emphasis on personal progression in regards to fine-tuning ones ability to determine and assess players of all age-groups in a way which has proven invaluable to landing a role in a professional club after finalizing the course. This particular role, as Youth Scout for Brøndby IF, was also one which would not have been possible had it not been for Kenneth Santa setting me up with an interview through his network with such a big club. Despite hoping for some kind of employment after this ScoutLab course, this was more than I could have hoped for or imagined. Kenneth himself was always open, super friendly, and available for a chat about football or feedback in general and made sure to come and watch games with me as well to share his experience both from the perspective of watching games on video and live (when geographically possible), again, at all age-groups to ensure as vast a platform of knowledge as possible is obtained by the participants of the course.”

I took the internship a few months ago(April-June 2020), when I had the time and the opportunity to expand my knowledge. It was great to build network and to find out what does a scout who's been working in the industry for years think about my skills.

The scouting internship provided me to develop myself as a scout. What really helped is the feedback that I get during the internship. That was for me very important and that's what mellemmand internship makes the difference. It helped me to look at players from different levels. Also I learned lot of the fellow scout colleagues.

"The scout education at M E L L E M M A N D . C O M, has taught me many things about scouting and talent identification. First of all, the importance of structure and organisation, as well as the importance in scouts, coaches and the management in a club speaking the same football language, that being in scouting reports and in general. Working with both video scouting and live scouting through the scouting program, helped me in the right direction, to modify and build upon my platform of knowledge, about the game and being able to put down the right words and describe, what you see as a scout. The scouting program helped me and have provided med with new tools, that I use in my daily work, working as a youth scout, for Brøndby IF. I am incredibly happy that I seized the scouting education opportunity with M E L L E M M A N D . C O M, and took the time to educate myself, as a person and as a professional, without it, I would never have reached the place I am now."

The scouting internship at Melemmand gave me good opportunity to learn more about "football scouting" from highly qualified instructors and it gave for me also chance to build my personal (worldwide) network. I had all tools (for example scouting softwares etc.) and they helped me to understand how football scouting works in the real life. If somebody's plan is to be a football scout, this internship would be a good "first step".

The Express Internship was an intensive and gratifying experience. Mellemmand provided me with all the necessary tools to help me in my development as a (video) scout. All while being part of a group of enthusiastic fellow scouts from all parts of the world.
