Overseas 16+

Academy Programme

Located in the Aveiro region of Portugal just an hour away from the major footballing city of Porto, our Overseas 16+ Programme offers residency in an exclusive hotel and aims to help young players make the move from youth and amateur football into the professional game. While improving and developing elite level players and coaches is the primary focus, it offers much more than just football coaching, fully immersing participants from as far away as Russia and the USA in the ultimate professional footballer experience for a full 9 month season. As well as top level training sessions devised by UEFA Pro Licensed Coaches and current pro's, you'll enjoy weekly matches against Portuguese Primeira Liga and Segunda Liga Clubs and Spanish La Liga Clubs.
