About Us

Our Mission
To create American college scholarship opportunities for soccer players in the most efficient way possible.

At John Robinson Soccer USA, we come to work every day because we want to create the opportunity for young football players to further their career, to continue their development, and to allow them to travel and live a life in the United States as a college athlete.

If you want another chance of making it into the professional game and a pathway into the MLS, while also getting an education and having the social experience of the ‘American Dream’, then we make that happen for you.

Our team realises the unrivalled opportunity that is available through the American college sports system for international student footballers but understands the complexities involved in taking the first step.

The American college coaches don’t know where to look and potential student-athletes don’t know where to start. The two pieces of the puzzle combined leads to a complicated and challenging process to overcome.

We created this business to make this process seamless, accessible and efficient. And to give you an elite and personal service as we place you with American colleges.

Who we are…

Founder, John Robinson played in the Premier League, Championship and International football for 16 years. He finished 7th in the Premier League and played in World Cup and European qualifiers for Wales against some of the best players in the world.

He then took his coaching school to the States where he has created an elite team and network to connect European football clubs and colleges with the best American colleges and MLS clubs.

Between us, the team at John Robinson Soccer USA consists of former professionals, former college players and college coaches. We know what players need and what coaches want. We’ve visited every state in the U.S., we’ve competed, studied spent summers working on the west coast while training for upcoming seasons and more. We’ve acquired degrees in finance, communications, mathematics, and marketing to MBAs and master’s in a number of fields all from our ability to play football.

You have access to both the coaches and the players who live and have lived, the American experience. And, we can assure you; it’s everything you envision and more!

As we are based out of the United States and the UK, we work tirelessly each day with American college coaches to find and recruit the high-quality European players that they demand from us.

Why Are We Different?

Because our staff have been through the process, from a player perspective, a coaches perspective, & a parent perspective. Enabling us to give the best advice possible, which ensures each one of our committed players is represented by our elite values and standards. The same values that allowed us to play in the Premier League and International football for 16 years.

The result?

A highly motivated and 100% eligible student-athlete ready to be offered the best possible football scholarship to begin a life in the United States.

At John Robinson Soccer USA we make this happen.
