UK Football Schools has spent the best part of twelve months doing extensive research for football academies in the UK, Spain, Germany, France, Italy and further afield.
We have already nailed down the best boarding schools in the UK for players aged 11 to 18 but we were thinking what about players who have left education, and how they can continue playing football at the highest level either in England or in Europe.
UK Football Schools investigated recommendations for football academies in Europe from the best football schools in England, the best UK football university as well as from ex-Premier League managers and coaches. After visiting numerous European football academies, we can say confidently that we have now partnered with the best private football academy in Europe. As we are an independent company, we can recommend any Spanish football academy or any other top European soccer academy, but we only recommend the best so if they do not meet our standards then we won’t recommend them! We only want soccer academies that are going to create opportunities for players to make the step up to the next level. The football academy UK Football Schools recommend has had over 45 players go on to sign for professional clubs in the UK, Europe, America, New Zealand and Australia, this is the benchmark which we strongly believe will not be beaten any time soon.
The teams at the academy are open to players aged 15 to 23, the soccer academy in Spain train and play six days a week under some of the top European coaches, there are pathways into professional clubs in Europe and beyond, soccer scholarships in the US, the top footballing university in the UK, football academies in Spain as well as career opportunities in the world of football. In a recent study, there are over 600,000 people working in English football and this number is ever growing due to the success of the English game, the links that Europe’s number one football academy has to professional clubs around the world creates opportunities to get into scouting, coaching, sports science and the behind the scenes roles i.e football marketing, catering and hospitality.

UK Football Schools have done the hard part for you when it comes down to looking for the best European soccer academies and we are here to help you secure your place for the August 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.
