About Million Dollar Feet

Million Dollar Feet is a grassroots football initiative offering Malaysian boys and girls aged 11 to 16 the chance to audition for professional scouts with the aim of securing a RM1 million academic/football scholarship at some of the world's premier academies.

The program conducts open trials across five states, including East Malaysia, allowing aspiring young athletes to demonstrate their skills to the head coaches of Million Dollar Feet, among whom is a former Premier League player.

The competition narrows down to twenty finalists — ten boys and ten girls — selected for their talent and potential. These finalists compete in the Grand Finals event in Kuala Lumpur, vying to be the ultimate winners.

Four outstanding participants, two boys and two girls, will be declared the overall winners. They will receive plane tickets to either the UK or Australia, where they will have the opportunity to try out for professional scouts, potentially securing a place in a top-tier academy.
