Starting out with 12 Players and 1 Coach on a pitch in Vauxhall, the Academy has now grown to over 300 players and 29 coaches and staff across 6 London locations’…
In 2013 Nuno Coelho the Academy Director started to develop the idea of a centralised program in London, one that was focused around a continental style of play, where technical and tactical aspects of the game were emphasised and the approach towards teaching younger players was more individualised and required a higher football IQ.
Being absolutely passionate about football, and loving to see a child’s smile, have fun and learn through sport, Nuno wanted to provide a program of coaching and learning that values an individual’s progress and guides them to be the best they can be within a professional and challenging setting.
This is why our Academy exists, so we can in return give to children what football has given to us.
We want to inspire children the same way we have been inspired, and be a positive factor and role model in their life – The Team at EFA
