Full Contact Player

Bilal Sayoud

Coventry City




Bilal Sayoud is London born but of German and Algerian descent.

He did not ever play for a professional club as a youth (whether as an Academy player or scholar) but spent his formative years in London playing amateur football for the likes of Ryan FC and also scoring two goals at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium for his School side in the Gazette Cup final.

After joining the Queens' Academy in Hertfordshire, a specialist sports college, Bilal impressed and earned the opportunity to enter a Nike competition - which he participated in during October 2013. This resulted in Bilal receiving an offer to join the full-time Nike Academy, which he started in January 2014.

It was whilst playing for Nike that Bilal impressed Full Contact's Lee Payne, prompting Bilal to join Full Contact's roster along with Nike team-mate Taofiq Olomowewe. Shortly after, Bilal commenced a trial at League One club Coventry City - and on the 24th March 2016 his dream came true: he signed as a professional footballer for the Sky Blues.
