FCV Academy is based at Grace Dieu Manor Park which is currently being developed to have all the amenities for aspiring footballers to thrive.
After previous tenant Grace Dieu Manor School closed in 2020 following 87 years of activity, FCV Academy are transforming the estate while helping to preserve its prestigious buildings and woodland.
FCV Academy is currently developing four full-sized pitches – two grass and two 4G – as well as several small-sided training pitches at Grace Dieu Manor Park. Next to accessible tennis courts, a two-storey gym has been approved for construction to allow players to train in accordance with their own fitness programme.
Students have training sessions in the already established on-site swimming pool which benefits fitness and team building, and in the sports hall which supports improvement of ball mastery and footwork. The intention is to expand the campus further in the coming years.
