One of the most important things regarding our potential family move to Portugal is our 8 year old son’s ability to play football, currently in the United States he plays on a travel/competitive team year round.
How does the youth football system work in Portugal and Europe in general? In the states it is easy to google search the city you live in and “soccer” and each club has it’s own site, not so much for Europe. How do you find a club to join? Do the larger club’s youth academies recruit from the smaller teams? Or do they have certain try-out dates?
Any insight would be helpful, thank you!
