Scouting is when a club sends a scout to watch a certain to player or team in order to gain information about them. Scouts are usually sent to watch a player with a view to buying that player in the future. Scouts are usually sent to watch teams that will be opponents in the near future so as to gain information about their strengths and weaknesses, how they play and which of their players may be dangerous.

Scouting has been a feature of almost every FM/CM game and included in more detail than ever in Football Manager 2008.
