Million Dollar Feet is an unprecedented opportunity to make dreams come true. Some call it “The Voice” of football. Others are hailing it as the ultimate opportunity of taking home-grown Malaysian talent into the international football arena. The dreams of thousands young football talents to play in the international arena will become a reality with a nationwide talent search. It is a perfect platform to springboard the career of deserving young local talents in football, where their background, race, creed and social status doesn’t matter.

It will provide an exciting platform for young, up-and-coming superstars to shine by fine combing the country for the best talents aged 11 to 16. Never before has there been a single entity which provides young home-grown Malaysian talents with the potential prospect of working with a top-notch European football club.

Last year 2016, the Million Dollar Feet team, led by EPL legend Steve McMahon conducted drills and tryouts in five states across the country with one aim – to find the country’s best young football talents. We had organized a few trials on:

i. 9th August: Kuala Lumpur (Launch Event)
ii. 24th – 25th September: Pulau Penang
iii. 30th September – 1st October: Kelantan
iv. 8th – 9th October: Sarawak
v. 14th – 15th October: Johor Bahru
vi. 21st – 22nd – 23rd October: Kuala Lumpur (Finale)

The tryouts was a fairly balanced drill to search for players with exceptional talents and proper core values to make it to the top. Shortlisted finalists competed in an ultimate showdown, where two lucky crème de la crème was sent on the ultimate football experience in the United Kingdom, with the opportunity of being witnessed by scouts from top European football clubs.

During ultimate showdown at Kuala Lumpur last October 2016, two finalist were selected to represent Malaysia; Muhd Yusry of Sarawak and Adam Roshan of Kuala Lumpur. Both finalists won the trip of a lifetime to the UK to audition in front of top football scouts from European Clubs.

The boys continued their training with the Nottingham Forest Academy youth team with close monitoring and supervision by Steve himself. Both boys performed admirably during the two-hour session which included high-performance skill based challenges including passing, shooting, decision-making and match-play.

Team scouts in attendance for the trials included Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton. First Division scouts also present included Nottingham Forest, Derby County among others. As part of MDF’s commitment to finding a footballing future for the boys, representatives from academies around the world (United Kingdom & United States) were also invited to witness their abilities and potential first hand.

Aside from gaining exposure and opportunity in this journey, the two boys were offered a million dollar academy scholarship to United Kingdom. So if you think you got the talents, flaunt it and join us in this amazing journey!
