fulham f.c. and the english fa training program

train and stay at the state of the art training complex of the English Federation

This generation adidas international training experience enables young players to experience the passion and English style of play at a top professional English side – Fulham F.C. The Fulham F.C. Academy is an important part of the club’s culture, with homegrown talent like Johnny Haynes, George Cohen, Paul Parker and Sean Davis rising through the ranks to first team status. Over 30 players have followed this trajectory, from Academy player to first team regular, since the 2011/12 season alone. The club’s dedication to developing young talent is shown in its recent renovation of the Motspur Park Training Ground for the Academy. Its focus is on individual development in a high performance environment, while also encouraging a supportive environment in which young players can thrive.

Founded in 1879, Fulham F.C. is the oldest established football team from London playing in the English football leagues. In 2010, they reached the final of the UEFA Europa League, losing only in extra time to the Spanish club Atlético de Madrid.

You will also travel to the Midlands to train and stay at the state of the art training complex of the English Federation – St. George’s Park. This new home to England ́s 24 national teams has already welcomed over 50 teams from the Premier League and Football League, as well as national and international teams. The facilities include eleven outdoor fields, including a replica of the Wembley surface, a full-size indoor 3G field, a rehabilitation suite and sports science area, and an indoor Futsal sports hall.

“Welcome to St. George’s Park: world class facilities, brilliant people and exceptional service combine to make this a very special place. A haven for personal development, St. George’s Park encourages an ethos of learning, teamwork and leadership and radiates an energy of fitness, human performance and innovation… every minute of every day; a destination of choice, which we hope will inspire all those who visit.”

~ David Sheepshanks, St. George’s Park Chairman

On behalf of our son Hernan (Nanu) we would like to express our gratitude to you, because you went above and beyond when hurricane Irene caused the cancelation of the flights, keeping our kids from coming back home on time.
