CEO Matteo Camponodico at the Wyscout forum at Stamford Bridge in 2017
Football clubs and agents meet at the annual Wyscout forum in Amsterdam this week, ready to discuss business for the January transfer window and beyond.
Guests will be shown the latest additions to Wyscout’s scouting technology before embarking on the ‘speed-dating’ of player recruitment, with clubs and agents meeting in public and in secret to build on their existing networks within the game.
But what is Wyscout? Who uses it? Why do the biggest clubs and biggest player agencies in the world send representatives to its forum every year?
