The journey to becoming a pro soccer player is quite different in the United States and in Europe. Americans typically play on their school teams and local travel teams until they graduate from high school and either do or don’t have to ability to be accepted into top soccer universities in the US. Then, they can be drafted into the MLS (Major League Soccer). European soccer, on the other hand, is not as present in the education system. Instead Europeans typically begin playing on their local teams or on official youth teams for professional football clubs. Then, they continue to play for better and better teams until they are eventually contracted… or not.
