Since our inception in 2007, FCV International Football Academy has proudly nurtured the talents of over a thousand players. An astounding 93% of them have elevated their game to play at higher levels than they ever imagined when they first joined us. Our alumni have not only graced every professional football league in England but have also left their mark in various European leagues and even on the international stage, representing their national teams.

Our Football with Education program boasts a pass rate of nearly 100% each year, allowing our graduate students to venture into further education at prestigious universities in the UK and the USA. With a number of them securing scholarships to pursue their studies while continuing to excel on the football pitch.

FCV International Football Academy takes immense pride in hosting showcase events throughout the year. These events provide our students with invaluable opportunities to showcase their talents before scouts and coaches from both professional and semi-professional football clubs. Additionally, we’ve cultivated strong ties with professional clubs in England and across the globe, which enables our players to undergo trials, immerse themselves in the professional club environment, and unlock exciting new opportunities.
