FUTURE ELITE SPORTS
The academy gives you the chance to train like a professional, develop as a player and progress on and off the pitch.
The goal is not only to prepare you to make the next step in your football career but to provide you with an excellent education.
Our full-time training program offers you the chance to train like a professional and includes strength & conditioning, analysis & recovery sessions. All sessions are timetabled around your academic lectures.
You’ll have access to our extensive links with professional and non-league clubs in the UK. Allowing you to play for the university and also for external clubs.
A large reason the academy is successful is the progressional pathway on offer. Our players are able to access opportunities in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, after they graduate.
