European Football Academy:
Scholarship Program (ASP)

IMPORTANT: The Scholarship Program is only open to residents of the United Kingdom (UK) who live in the Greater London area.

 

Our scholarship program is centred around player excellence not only in football but in education and as a upstanding member of society as well.It is a fully funded program whereby a player will receive full academy training through outside sponsorship amongst other benefits.

The educational aspect of our program plays a key part as we believe in giving a student every opportunity to succeed outside of football along their career path.
Because of this we make it clear that it is NOT A FREE RIDE for children who want to play football, and we require minimum set of standards at school to be maintained in order for a child to remain eligible.

  2. Players must be present at least 95% of school hours each semester to remain eligible.
