The difference between PSC Soccer Academy and AX Soccer Tours
We have had many players inquire as for the difference between ourselves PSC Soccer and a company called AX Soccer and we are more than happy to transparently explain these differences to players.
Here at PSC have been running combines for the past 7 years and for 4 of those years AX Soccer recruited players and sent them to our events to showcase professionally. As of January 2017 AX, by their choice, no longer work with us and do not send players to our events.
Our agency has an excellent reputation in the professional game which has been built since our formation in 2002 through working with clubs, players and coaches from across the Premier League, MLS, USL and top European league with great success.
You will see on AX Soccer’s website a list of clubs they claim to have worked with – Almost all of the club badges listed, have never worked with AX Soccer, and have no relationship whatsoever with AX Soccer. The only link is that these clubs have worked with PSC, who had formerly worked with AX Soccer. There is no direct link from AX Soccer to these clubs.
For example, Manchester City’s badge is present on the AX website, but AX Soccer have no relationship with Manchester City. PSC, however, helped place current first team player Oleksandr Zinchenko with the Premier League giants. PSC have also played showcase games against Manchester City Youth team as well as having important contacts at the club,
Since 2017, AX soccer are now running their own events and have disappointingly continued to use PSC’s content, success stories, and hard work of PSC’s staff, to sell their new events.
If you visit their success story page, you will notice a large majority of their success stories are also listed on PSC’s Success story page, so we would like to openly show how these players have placed and their relationship with PSC.
This is to prove that they were a product of PSC’s contacts and efforts, and not AX Soccer. Some of these players may have been recruited to attend an event by AX Soccer, but it was undoubtedly, and unquestionably, PSC’s staff, network, and contacts which led to them signing, or trialing, professionally.
