The Podyum: The Breakthrough Series Berlin
The Podyum is proud to be hosting this Pro Day Combine in partnership with the Berlin Rebels, Football America UK Ltd, Phenom Elite & Prozis. It is highly recommended that you attend this event if you fit one of the following descriptions:
1. You want to play in the top division of the German Football League, and/or
2. You want to play for another top team in Europe, and/or
3. You want to experience a pro level combine, one which involves all the same elements of the NFL's Pro Day Combine: testing, drills, competitions and meetings.
This combine is open to all male and female players aged 16+.
This is a closed event. Only those players, coaches, scouts and individuals who have officially registered with The Podyum will be granted admissions. On the day of the event, if you have successfully registered with us, you will be given your admission credentials which must be worn at all times.
Booth registration is still open for this event. There are 2 remaining spots available. It is also still possible for additional teams to send scouts for the on-field portion on Saturday November 17. Please contact our Facebook page directly to register.
The combine website is here:
You will find all details there laid out very clearly. This goes for players, coaches and teams.
Saturday November 17 is on field work (combine testing, position based agility drills & competitions).
Sunday November 18 is meetings, where players and teams can meet privately, show film, discuss offers and generally get to know each other in a private and non-rushed setting.
Our first ever combine (London, 2017) saw 4 players sign with 2 different top GFL 1 teams (Braunschweig and Dresden) and only 2 teams were present as scouts (another player from the combine landed an NCAA D1 Scholarship).
