Open Day Information
Attend an Open Day or Individual Tour
For those players and families unable to attend a specific open day, the FCV International Football Academy can still arrange an individual taster day on a convenient date and time. Please do advise us on the registration form any specific requests and we will endeavour to meet your requirements.
Please note that to attend an open day and trial, players must attend with a parent or recognised guardian.
We would always recommend a student and their family visit the academy when considering to join our programme. That said, should a player be unable to attend an open or taster day, we are able to assess their application and skill set through video footage, along with references from their current qualified coach. A link to the relevant footage can be emailed or a hard copy DVD posted to the academy address for consideration, both methods must be accompanied by the relevant open day application form.
Please note to register to attend an FCV International Football Academy Open Day, Taster Day or to be assessed through video footage, a deposit of £75 is required.
If you are visiting the UK to attend a trial or open day at the FCV International Football Academy and are not a citizen of the UK or EU, you may be required to obtain a general visitor visa.

This visa enquiry form can be used to determine whether you need to obtain a visa, as well as providing details of the nearest visa section where you can make your application. Letters of confirmation to support an application can be sent by the academy on receipt of a completed registration form and deposit.
