Participant of the Wrocław edition of the IPSO course, Michał Opilka, got a job as a scout at English Championship club, Reading FC. It was only with the academy at first but now in a space of months he’s moved up and now scouts for the first team.

‘My scouting journey has started in Wrocław. I participated in the IPSO course, which took place in that city, which was a great experience for me. I learned that there’s a lot of new things about football, I learned what is important in the work of a scout. The knowledge gained there proved to be very useful’, said Opilka.

‘I would like to thank IPSO lecturers for the amount of shared knowledge. I learned from you how to become a professional scout. I would recommend IPSO courses to anyone who start this profession in future’, said Opilka.

From Ipso to Championship and possibly the Premier League Michal is the perfect attendant. He was hungry and willing to learn. Not only was he dedicated when doing both Level1 and Level 2 in his dream to become a professional scout. He was patient. He started with the academy and his quality of work paid off and he is now a 1st team scout that IPSO are very proud of.

Well done Michal.
