BASE is in search of dedicated and skilled student-athletes intent on enhancing their football prowess. It is tailored for players ready to thrive in an international soccer setting. We are in search of serious, talented student-athletes committed to both their personal and athletic development.

We welcome individuals aged 18 and above, with the opportunity for exceptional players from age 16 to join as day students, provided they are permanently based in Thailand holding a Thai passport or a valid education visa prior to applying.

At BASE, we offer a very limited number of scholarships for aspiring footballers. These scholarships are not solely based on football talent; they are awarded based on financial need or other specific criteria. To be eligible for a scholarship, players must either hold a Thai passport or be a resident in Thailand with a valid visa prior to initiating the application process. Applicants must demonstrate a genuine need for financial support or meet particular conditions beyond their skills on the pitch. Due to the limited availability, we encourage prospective applicants to thoroughly prepare and submit their applications early, ensuring they meet all residency, legal, and need-based requirements for consideration.

By enrolling at BASE, you gain access to an optimal environment for aspiring professional footballers. However, we do not guarantee a transition to professional status, nor do we promise signings, placements, or professional contracts. Our commitment is to ensure that each player reaches their full potential. At BASE, we focus on aiding your development of a career plan within the international football industry, exploring various career paths such as coaching, scouting, operations, and more, to lay the groundwork for your unique football journey.

Our Head Coaches constantly evaluate players in conjunction with their Individual Development Plans (IDPs). As soon as we assess that players are ready, we proactively organise their participation in our showcase trials. Additionally, we facilitate visits to London for training sessions with the WHUF Academy teams. These opportunities are not only pivotal for exposure but also provide players with invaluable feedback on their potential and prospects in Europe. We actively champion our players' success, as their achievements promote and elevate our academy. Our aim is to ensure that each player receives the guidance and experiences necessary to gauge and enhance their chances of success in the European football landscape.
