IFA Academy concept

IDAP Football Academy (IFA) is a Professional Football Association based in London, which works in partnership with many semi and professional football clubs within the UK. Our vision is to produce and develop young players aged 5 to 16 years in order to help them secure professional and non-league football contracts depending on ability.

It’s every boy’s dream to play professional football but what does it take to make it and how do you start? Every week hundreds of thousands of players of all ages take part in football matches – from junior age to semi-pro, they all share the same love of the game. But what if you have the talent? What if you have the ability to play at an even higher level… professionally? Professional clubs are always on the look out for talented players of all ages; from academy youngsters to 1st team Pro’s. Yet many talented players never get spotted, never get their chance – so why is this?

Well, the answer is simple – OPPORTUNITY.

If the club scouts never get to hear about you and never get to see you play then you will NEVER get the chance to achieve your dream of playing as a Professional Footballer. Your chance starts here with IDAP Football Academy (IFA)

“Your chance to make it in the world of Pro Football starts right here – right now !”
