WHAT IS Fieldoo Rating?

Fieldoo Rating is a secret recipe we make here at Fieldoo. It is consisted from many different ingredients (alghortims), which of course are not known to public. We take into consideration different metrics and characteristics of Fieldoo profile and many other small but important things. Fieldoo rating system provides better experience and surface the best results for different queries, not to mention that gives everybody a chance to be seen and featured on top of Fieldoo Lists. Better the profile completeness better the chances players have to get a better rating, because we know more information about him.

When wanting to improve your Fieldoo rating, think of your:
  1. Fieldoo Activity:
    This the newest metric we applied to search results and other displays of players on our platform. What it means basically that if for example five players match a search query, the one who is most active on Fieldoo (responding messages etc) will be the first in the list.

    What can you do: Make sure you frequently update your CV and be responsive.
  2. Credibility:
    We already account the impact of credibility of an account on its position in the Players’ List and now we’ve added some functionality that helps us confirm accounts and assure they show in the search results.

    What can you do: You can post official links from your official club website, national team or an official statistics site that contains information about you in the Press section of your profile.
  3. Profile Completeness:
    This one is a given and we just want to stress upon the importance a complete profile has on your potential position in search results. For example, a profile lacking a profile picture or a date of birth will drop significantly and would only be displayed if it corresponded to the specific advanced search query.

    What can you do: As always, update your CV and complete your profile.
  4. Career history:
    The new ratings include all of the players playing history and experience to greater effect. Basically, it matters a lot if you have experience in top divisions even though you’re know playing in lower ones for example.

    What you can do: Be thorough when filling in your career stats, make sure you provide all of the data you have available.
... and do not get suspended. Breaching Fieldoo Terms of Use will NOT have a pleasent effect on your rating.

What is a verified account?

Any account with a green verified badge on their Fieldoo profile is a verified account.
Top

Why do we verify accounts?

Fieldoo invests a lot in security in order to provide relevant contacts to our users. Only members will have an option to send messages to other users along with some other benefits.

By verifying your account, your profile becomes even more credible, trustworthy and you are much more likely to be contacted. You will also receive better exposure, more followers and more relevant suggestions from Fieldoo.

Combined with the upgraded account, verification provides an option to contact any user you want. Getting in touch with users will no longer be limited to your region of activity.

Top

What kinds of accounts get verified?

Fieldoo verifies accounts on an ongoing basis to make it easier for users to find who they're looking for. We concentrate on each individual user, its characteristics and qualifications for verification.

We are constantly updating our requirements for verification. Note, verification does not factor in follower count or having Premium account. Yes, being a Premium member definitely helps, but it doesn't guarantee a verification of your account.

We do not accept requests for verification from the general public. If your Fieldoo account meets our qualifications for verification, we may reach out to you in the future.
Top

Why hasn't my account been verified?

If you think you meet the criteria for verification and have not yet received a badge, please be patient. We don't accept verification requests from the general public, but we encourage you to continue using Fieldoo in a meaningful way, and you may be verified in the future.

Complying with Fieldoo Terms of Service and being active on Fieldoo certainly helps in determining whether an account meets our criteria for verification.
Top

Yes, verified account holders have access to extra features. What kind of extra features? Make sure your account gets verified and you will instantly find out.
Top

How to identify an official verified account:

  1. The verified badge will appear next to a user's name on their profile page. It will also appear next to a user’s name in searches for people on Fieldoo Lists.
  2. If the verified badge appears anywhere else on a user's profile page (such as in the avatar or the background) it is not a verified account.
  3. The verified badge cannot be used unless it is provided by Fieldoo. Accounts using a badge as part of profile pictures, background images, or in any way implying false verification will be permanently suspended.
  4. The verified badge will have the same color even if users have customized their profile page theme colors.

FIELDOO GUIDELINES FOR PLAYERS - HOW TO CONTACT AN AGENT

Top The key is to get contacted by an agent, scout or club and not to contact an agent! Getting contacted or finding the right contact is not a simple task, as you must take a lot of factors in account. It is hard work and it takes extra effort off pitch, but it is essential part of your career. Here are some guidelines to find the best possible agent or industry contact.
Top

a.

Your Fieldoo profile is your football CV. When an agent or a scout ask you for your CV you send them your Fieldoo screen name link www.fieldoo.com/yourscreenname.
Top

b.

Complete your football CV. Agent won’t even look at empty or half completed profiles. You should always try to fully complete all aspects of your Fieldoo profile.

Don’t expect to get contacted if you don’t have a profile photo or you only entered two years of football in your career history.
Top

c.

The most import part of your football CV is your promotional video. If you don’t have one create one as immediately.
Top

d.

Always state your right career information. Every good agent will double check your career data and all information on you. Don’t lie or invent stuff.
Top

e.

Know what you are looking for. If you are an upcoming player with big football dreams start by following and contacting an agent or agents from your region of activity. If you are seeking your last professional contract you should also try contacting agents from football exotic countries.
Top

f.

All agents, scouts and clubs assess players the same way.
Top

g.

Use Fieldoo market classifieds and apply for posts. Apply only to classifieds you fit for. Don’t apply to post searching for EU players if you are from Nigeria or Argentina. Just don’t do it!
Top

h.

Never pay any money upfront to unknown agents, scouts or persons asking for it. Be careful, as not everybody has good intentions.
Top

i.

When contacting an agent stick to the facts, be realistic and don't make abnormal demands. If you are currently playing in the 4th English Premier League.
Top

j.

Look around. There are thousands of agent, scouts, and club representatives looking for football players on Fieldoo. Ask your Fieldoo network – friends and teammates for recommendation.
Top

k.

Always do your own diligence. Fieldoo does verify agent information, but cannot and doesn’t guarantee their intentions.
Top

l.

Indemnify Fieldoo. You must agree not to hold us responsible for anything. We are here to help, but all the decisions are you make on your own.
Top

m.

When in doubt, contact us for advice.

FIELDOO GUIDELINES FOR PLAYERS - HOW TO MAKE A PROMO VIDEO

Top The football player's promo video is one of the most important or even decisive things that make first impression on agents and scouts. That is why a player should have a quality promo video based on the qualities which agents and scouts like to see. Here are some guidelines on how to make the the best possible promo video to show your talent to the world. Promotional video is the most important part of your football CV. It is a short clip, made from various games (matches), where a player presents himself and emphasize his attributes.
Top

a.

The promo video must point out the best attributes according to the player's position on the field, not just the best moves.

Learn on examples for: DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER: defensive play, tackling, positioning, reading the game, changing the sides of the play, short passes, long passes, long range shooting, set pieces, etc.;

GOALKEEPER: command of area, best saves, one on one situations, reaction to high balls, good technic, long balls shooting, long ball throwing, etc.;

STRIKER: goals from all positions, with both legs, with head, defensive working habits, ability to keep the ball, one on one situation, set pieces, etc.
Top

b.

The promo video has to be short. Ideally it should be from three (3) to maximum ten (10) minutes long.
Top

c.

If possible, the promo video should contain the footage from the competitive matches only. Agents and scouts need to see player's reactions in real situations when there is lack of time and space and also reactions under pressure.
Top

d.

NEVER MAKE the promo video that contains juggling, free styling, free kicks taking only, futsal playing or playing for fun with friends.
Top

e.

A promo video must contain player's basic info. Add an ID to your presentation, stating who you are: your name and surname, date of birth, position, club (former clubs), nationality, height/weight and any other relevant information that might interest your viewer.
Top

f.

Make sure that it is clearly visible who you are on the video. Post-production custom effects (for instance: highlighting your pitch position by a circle or a pointer,..) take some time, but are well worth it.
Top

g.

The footage has to be the highest quality possible.
Top

h.

Promo video should not be older than 1 year, and should be regularly updated. If possible, update promo video all the time (at least once a year, that is).
Top

i.

Use only material that is relevant and up-to-date. Avoid using old footage; not only because a skilled agent or scout will know that the material is old, but also because – if everything is normal – newer footage should show better and new skills.
Top

j.

Make sure you have enough material (your football matches) to make a good compilation out of it. If your games are not on TV and nobody is filming them, it is up to you to get somebody who will catch you on tape. In today’s digitalized world, it shouldn’t be a problem.
Top

k.

Get to recordings of your matches or make sure (together with your team-mates) your matches are getting recorded.

ASK YOUR COACH. If you’re using videos to analyse your performance after the game then you can surely get a copy directly from your club.

GET IT DIRECTLY FROM A BROADCAST. If your matches are broadcasted live on TV, you can ask the TV station to give you a copy or have someone record the broadcast.

HIRE A CAMERAMAN or ask a friend. If above options aren’t possible than you can hire a cameraman. Talk to your teammates so you’ll be able to share expenses and get copies for everyone. If all of you pitch in you could even get a camera crew and end up with a professional recordings with multiple angles.
Top

l.

Whatever problem you encounter, there is always a solution:

Don't have the footage from a competitive match? Use the footage from the friendly match.
Don't have a high quality camera? Use a smart phone.
Don't know how to cut the video? Use the YouTube Video Editor.

When in doubt, contact us for advice. We are here to help, but all the decisions are you make on your own.

Don’t expect to get contacted if you don’t have a profile photo or haven't written anything about yourself.
Top

c.

Always state your right career information. Every player, club representative and fellow agent will double check your career data and information on you before considering doing business with you. So will us. Don’t lie or invent stuff.
Top

d.

Know what you are looking for and what you offer. Fill in regions of activity you are or will be active in and be specific in your market posts.
Top

e.

Top

f.

When contacting players and other agents stick to the facts, be realistic and don't make abnormal demands.
Top

g.

Look around. There are tens of thousands of players looking for new opportunities and thousands of others working in football on Fieldoo. Ask your Fieldoo network – friends and colleagues for recommendation.
Top

h.

Always do your own diligence. Fieldoo checks players' info and verifies agent information, but cannot and doesn’t guarantee their intentions.
