About the European Football Academy
Why Choosing Us ?
Our coaching team is made of a seriously experienced team of professionals, from physical education teachers to UEFA A & B qualified coaches, to secure the safest, most challenging and rewarding development.
From joining to the best football leagues in town, with scouting opportunities for the best players, we also offer the possibility of joining local half term camps, Overseas Residential Camps and the International Football Tournaments.
All Weather Grounds
We don’t like to rely on the weather conditions to ensure our football agenda runs all season round without hiccups.
This means that all our training sites have astro pitches so we can offer the best football training grounds .
What You’ll Learn
We take pride in our holistic view of football training, and strongly believe that becoming a valuable and versatile player goes far beyond the skills you possess on the pitch.
We aim to raise not just remarkable players, but outstanding individuals who will go on to achieve great things throughout their lives.
Player Centred Philosophy
Each footballer is constantly reviewed on the four development corners (technical, social, physical and psychological) so we can steer their learnings in the best direction.
“Behind every kick of the ball there has to be a thought.” Dennis Bergkamp
Fostering Football Intelligence
Game understanding is key for us, from learning the different moments of play, the principles that rule it and the specific positional role of each team player.
“Football is played with your head. Your feet are just the tools.” Andrea Pirlo
Raising Remarkable Individuals
The ways in which we carry ourselves both inside and outside the pitch should always resonate to our daily lives.

Meet the Coaching Team
If our academy was a football team, this would clearly be our coaching first draft.
Our parents are the living proof that what we do speaks volume out there. Take a look into what they have to say about us.
”My son joined about 4 years ago, and it is fair to say that his life now revolves around EFA!
The coaches are dedicated and nurturing, and their support, and emphasis on sportsmanship and mutual respect – both on and off the pitch – is especially important to me. He has played in numerous competitive leagues and cups across London and beyond; and a trip to Sweden to compete in the U12’s Gothia cup remains one of his most memorable and formative experiences.
His teammates have become his best friends, and the EFA like family, and I highly recommend them to anyone who has a child with an interest in football.
My son joined EFA just before his 5th birthday and he enjoyed a lot the friendly atmosphere he found there.
I have been very impressed with how approachable all the coaches are. They think of players as individuals and the club is big enough to offer opportunities matching the level of ambition and work ethic each child has.
EFA offered my son everything he needed during a critical period in his development as a player. This summer he was spotted by the coaches at Fulham FC and was invited to join their pre – Academy programme. This opportunity would not have been possible without the fantastic support offered by EFA. We are very grateful and will always cheer for our friends at EFA!
My son joined EFA 4 years ago. He participates in training sessions and matches in addition to his school team. This is quite a time commitment, but he says he gets more from the EFA sessions than his school training.
The EFA coaches are serious but welcoming and supportive. They reflect good values and sportsmanship. Training sessions are intense, but with a sense of camaraderie and team play.
My son has definitely improved his skills by playing with EFA. It has also exposed him to different styles of play. I would recommend the EFA to anyone looking for a high quality of play in a supportive atmosphere.
