Over the last six months Nike have been scouring the UK for The Chance, a global talent hunt that
aims to uncover talented teenage footballers who have been overlooked by traditional scouting
networks. Nike’s scouts watched more than 5,000 players in the UK and an extensive series of trials
has produced three UK winners: Liam Baker (a forward), Jose Figura and Ashleigh Artwell (both
midfielders) were selected by a panel composed of experienced coaches, ex-professional footballers
and Manchester United and England’s Rio Ferdinand.
