Whether it is the red of Liverpool, the blue of Chelsea, or any top English that your child dreams of wearing in the future, the FootieBugs Academy is possibly the first step on the ladder to reach that dream.

With the ability to feed into almost every professional club in the country, FootieBugs is in the perfect position to ensure that when your child is ready, they will be given every opportunity to be noticed by the all the professional clubs’ academy set ups not only locally, but also nationally.

And we do mean nationally, for example should a northern based club such as Manchester United, Manchester City or Everton or southern based club such as Chelsea, Tottenham or Arsenal show an interest, then they would send along their local scout to watch the player during either a FootieBugs training session or a FootieBugs match against another academy.

On a more local basis the relationship FootieBugs has with championship side Birmingham City has even led to the FootieBugs Academy being the only academy to supply players to the BCFC academy.

One of the key reasons that all the top clubs work with FootieBugs, is that FootieBugs has an excellent reputation for not only spotting talent but also nurturing this talent through our impressive academy training programmes.

Given that all FootieBugs academy sessions are run in line with the top clubs’ own academy training programmes, it is not unusual to see a number of guest coaches from the different professional clubs taking the sessions or advising players.

During FootieBugs sessions, which are coached age appropriately, our expert coaches introduce children of a more advanced ability in their age group to the more technical and tactical aspects of the game. Through different drills, matches against local clubs and homework skills, FootieBugs Academy children will gain the confidence and experience that will catch the eyes of professional club scouts that attend our sessions.
