Many families ask how much the average scholarship is for Mens college soccer. However, that’s pretty difficult to pinpoint. Men’s soccer is an equivalency sport, meaning that coaches are not required to give out full scholarships to their athletes and can instead break them up however they want. Additionally, the cost of tuition at each college and university varies. An in-state student at a public university could pay close to $10,000 a year, while an out-of-state student at a private university could pay $60,000 a year.


Why study in the USA?

American universities are widely known for the quality of their teaching and research. The United States is the number one and largest destination for international students seeking higher education overseas. The education system in USA is the most versatile and flexible higher education system for international students in the world.

Today about 30 percent of all current international students in the world are studying in the United States.

If you have ever wondered what makes U.S. higher education so popular we could sum it up by saying its Academic Excellence recognized throughout the world combined with cutting-edge technology offers students unlimited opportunities for research at all levels. Additionally, campus life which offers a diverse choice of academic, cultural and athletic activities to choose from not only enrich the educational experience but also help students make new friends and become global citizens.


Why play soccer in the USA?

Perhaps you are a player with exceptional talent but your chances of becoming a top-flight professional in Europe is waining. Why not take advantage of your talent and formation as a player to get a scholarship to study and play at a University in the US?!

By studying and playing in the US, you not only will utilize your ability as a player to potentially receive an incredible education, but you may also still have the opportunity to become a professional player in the US. Major League Soccer and USL clubs in the USA recruit heavily from colleges just as professional clubs in Europe recruit from youth academies. While in Europe players must be nearly ready to reach the pro level by age of 18 or 19, the age of becoming a professional in the US is typically a few years older. 90% of the players who enter the MLS draft will have come from college. Reaching the professional stage takes hard work and dedication but if you stand out in college soccer in the US, you will gain exposure to the American professional scouts and clubs.

There's also the promise that the 2026 World Cup set to be held in North America, which will be a catalyst for a new phase of growth in U.S. soccer, particularly as kids will learn to love and play this beautiful game.
