Daniel Vilardi invited to trial with Pro Italian club Carpi FC


Modena, Italy. We are happy to announce that the young talented North American soccer player Daniel Vilardi (17), has been invited to trial with Carpi FC (Italian professional football club based in Carpi in the province of Modena) after spending the 2017-18 season playing for Young Boys Cognentese as part of IFX Youth Year Italy program. Daniel will be undergoing different physical tests and carefully observed by coaching staff from the Carpi FC soccer department over the next several weeks, deciding his future with the Italian Serie B club.

Daniel continues training at the highest level in order to size this opportunity and reach his dream of becoming a pro soccer player in one of the most important soccer leagues of the world. This has been a good season for Daniel with Young Boys Cognentese. His dedication and determination to succeed in this process and his family’s undying support of his ambition to reach the professional ranks all have contributed to warrant giving Daniel this incredible opportunity.

Carpi Football Club 1909 is an Italian professional soccer club based in Carpi, Italy. The club was founded in 1909. Carpi's colors are white and red, hence the nickname "Biancorossi". At the end of the 2012–13 season, Carpi won their first promotion to Serie B. On 28 April 2015, the Biancorossi won their first promotion to Serie A, but were relegated back to Serie B after only one season. In its history, the Biancorossi have won a handful of league titles, including: the old Lega Pro Seconda Divisione; Serie B once; Serie C once; and Serie D four times. The 2014–15 Serie B campaign saw Carpi, managed by experienced coach Fabrizio Castori, completing the first half of the season (21 games) in a surprising 1st place, with a record of 43 points and a nine-point advantage over second-placed Frosinone. On 28 April 2015, after a goalless draw with Bari, the club gained an historic first ever promotion to Serie A.

  • The center back engaged IFX Soccer to facilitate the arrangements to play soccer overseas.

Just one year ago, Daniel enrolled in the IFX academic year football program in Italy in order to pursue his football development in Italy and to study abroad. The center back engaged IFX Soccer to facilitate the arrangements to play soccer overseas, enabling Vilardi to focus on training and playing while IFX representatives sort out all logistical details including accommodation arrangement, school and club placement.

Daniel stands out for his accurate passing and strong shot. He is an aggressive tackler and definitely a team player who never gives up on and off the pitch, a quality that surely impressed Carpi´s scouts. We from IFX are very happy and proud of Daniel's development, having him in our program, helping him to play soccer and live his dream in Italy.
