AiSCOUT Safeguarding Concern

2nd Sep 2021

Dear Parents,

We have been made aware of an app call AiSCOUT.

The idea is that it is used by professional scouts to get details of potential players. Players upload their details and videos for scouts to view. The EFL were completely unaware of the app until we brought it to their attention, and they and the FA and PFA are now looking into it.

Please be aware that this app is not regulated, and there is no way of knowing that the people accessing players information and videos are legitimate professional scouts.

We would advise players and parents not to download and use this app.

Should we receive any updates from either the EFL, FA or PFA around the legitimacy and safety of this app we will be sure to let you know.

Many thanks,

Danetta Powell

Head of Safeguarding & Player Care
