The Nike Football app will feature the best and most popular elements of the Nike Football brand in one place. The app will allow football players to set up matches, banter with friends and teammates and be the first to get access to exclusive Nike products.

Most interestingly, the app will also function as a gateway for talented young footballers who dream of becoming professionals through the Nike Academy. The UK-based academy gives talented amateur players an opportunity to impress coaches and scouts and earn a professional contract. In the past, unheralded players from around the world have leveraged the Academy to earn pro contracts.

The Nike Football app will now be the only way for budding stars to earn spots to the Nike Academy, as it will be used for registration for all Nike Academy trials.
