Eddie Loewen is one of the few experts who understands American youth soccer and how the German Bundesliga develops youth players. With amazing contacts and a deep appreciation and familiarity with his homeland, Loewen has provided hundreds of American youth soccer players with the chance to train, compete and be scouted in Germany.
Eddie Loewen’s goal has always been connecting U.S. youth soccer talent with unique soccer opportunities in Europe. With more than a decade of experience, this former Bundesliga player and colleague Arne Friedrich, a former German national team player, have opened doors and arranged trials with top tier clubs for many players.
Friedrich is currently in Germany working with Hertha Berlin and Loewen calls Florida his home now. Working together, Loewen and Friedrich immerse players in a professional, diverse and high-level training program with intense, top-tier competition.
A new decade brings new opportunities and, as the founder of Global Soccer Development, (Loewen rebranded GFL as Global Soccer Development in January 2020 because of a change of partnership structure), Loewen will continue as a world-recognized leader of international soccer training, arranging trials, hosting tournaments, and highly select tours.
