Play your way to Wembley with Budweiser's open trials

Think you’re good enough to play at Wembley?

The Budweiser Open Trials, in association with BT Sport, will see six regional heats take place across the country ahead of the penultimate showdown at St. George’s Park.

And if you make it through all that you get the chance to showcase your talents on the Wembley pitch.
Graeme Le Saux, Ray Parlour, Peter Shilton, Rob Lee, Ray Houghton and Owen Coyle will each attend one of the first round of trials taking place across the country, as the initial group of hopefuls is whittled down to just 126 trialists, who will then head to St. George’s Park for a final assessment.
Le Saux will be at Parley Sports Club (South West) and Ray Parlour at Bedfont Sports FC (London) on February 7; Rob Lee will oversee trials at Blyth Town (North East) and Owen Coyle going to AFC Blackpool (North West) on February 8; Ray Houghton will head to Pegasus Juniors FC (West Midlands) and Peter Shilton will oversee the goalkeepers trial at Handsworth Junior FC (East Midlands) on February 9.
Former England and Chelsea left back Le Saux said: “The Budweiser Open Trials is the opportunity every amateur footballer dreams of – a second chance. The game is littered with guys who didn’t make it for one reason or another, but just needed one last chance to prove themselves.

“I’m looking forward to helping the process of identifying them and seeing some of them making it all the way to Wembley.”

The sign-up process is only open to males over the age of 25 and closes on January 27 with regional trials taking place on February 7, 8 and 9.
