Each course also will feature at least 1 trial match where a showcase match will be put on and scouts from around the country will attend to watch the game and pick up any talented young players that we have on show.

  • A 4 week course is a basic introduction and an opportunity to get a taste of the lifestyle of a full time footballer, and sample some excellent coaching and opportunities.
  • An 8 week course is the same principle, but with more time you get more exposure to clubs, and more time to develop as a footballer.
  • Our 12, 18 & 20 Week Courses are aimed at people that are serious about finding a football club where they get 18 Weeks to work with fitness experts, pro coaches and play with our scholars in competitive matches and really have an opportunity to be seen.
  • Our 1 year courses are aimed at people who want to study or think they need some time to develop before they are ready to take advantage of the opportunities available at the academy. We might also offer players who come on a short course a place on our 1 year course if they do very well!

About our Academy Campuses & Locations


The Future Lions International Football Academy is proud to have its Head Quarters in the UK, the Home of Football. However we have a number of centres in operation throughout the country, which are used for different courses. Our full time scholars train and study 5 days a week in the heart of the UK in Northamptonshire, but occasionally we also run courses from St Georges Park where the England National team and FA is based, and at Lilleshall National Sports Centre and Bisham Abbey Sport Centre, especially for Group Visits and Team Events. All of which boast world class training faclilities, fitness equipment and fully inclusive accommodation.

Courses in the UK are running all year round so why not book yourself on the next course and experience if for yourself from the list of courses available above.

In the UK its possible to take short courses as well as 6 month courses including English Language, and its possible to take Football & English courses for 1 year too. We are also able to offer BTEC diploma studies to support the football courses too.


Having recently opened our office in Shantou in China, we have a very strong footballing presence within the province. The facilities that Future Lions have in China are perhaps our MOST IMPRESSIVE of all our International academy facilties, which include a large private dorm for players to stay, a 26,000 Capacity all seater Stadium and the academy is linked to semi professional club Shantou Lions, giving players realistic opportunities to develop and a clear pathway to progress. It is also possible to learn Mandarin whilst with us at the academy or indeed take English Classes. This also means that our players from Australia, New Zealand and India no longer need to travel to the UK and is a great opportunity to get UK quality UEFA coaching and superb chances to play football without having to travel half way around the world.

China also represents the perfect stepping stone for young footballers wanting to be noticed. By breaking into professional teams in China, you can really putyourselves on to the Roadmap to finding UK and Europe based teams too.


There is just something about Spanish Football, and the sunny weather that makes our centre in Marbella, in the South of Spain in the Andalucia region, one of our most popular centres. Recently used by Liverpool FC to prepare for their Champions League Final against Real Madrid, these facilities are TOP CLASS!! In the perfect reagion of Spain called the Costa del Sol due to its unique microclimate and 300+ days a year of sunshine, it makes it the ideal location for our players to enjoy the swimming pools and beaches as well as the hard work on the football pitch and in the Gym.

The Spanish Facilities are are used as Training Camps and for our Group Visits so are ideal if you wish to take your team away for a tour, or PreSEason Training Camp. Training Camps will also run for 2 weeks at EASTER, SUMMER & October School holidays each year. To book on a course please contact us
