The last edition of the Maurice Revello Tournament, formerly the Toulon Tournament, one of the most important youth football competitions in the world, had the Venezuelan Telasco Segovia as the main figure, leading Venezuela to the final, which was won by France. His name soon attracted attention, positioning Venezuela as an interesting market for talent spotting.

Within CONMEBOL, as we analysed in our analysis of the CONMEBOL market, Venezuela is a country that lives from the export of players for the growth of both its league and its national team, always behind much more powerful nations in the run-up to the World Cup qualifiers.
