WE ARE THE FOOTBALL ACADEMY

Since its inception in January 2016, TFA has promoted football in a holistic manner, by empowering players to elevate their passion for football to reach the professional levels that they aspire for. The academy has become a center for the community, as the place where students realize their inner potential, athletes train for championships, coaches enhance their skills and everyone learns crucial life skills through football. TFA focuses on players under the age of 18 years of age. 

Driven by committed coaches and focused to motivate and guide athletes to their peak potential, TFA is known for the many specialized programs that have launched career and education paths for athletes across the globe. Our purpose is to help every young football player achieve their dream and that’s why we curate paths for players from their toddler years to adolescence, going even further in our efforts to support young post-grads in acquiring their dream to carry on playing soccer while pursuing college studies.

We handpick the next generation of global football talent and train them to play among the best. For so many, the dream of playing football at professional level seems like an unattainable dream. The Football Academy is changing the reality for gifted players from around the globe. We invite you to be a part of the next exciting chapter in football history.
