LCFA Academy of Sport


Liverpool County FA are excited to share the launch of our Academy of Sport for 16-19-year-olds in partnership with Merseyside-based education provider Brighter Futures. The Academy of Sport is offering school leavers the opportunity to kick start a career in sport.

Kicking off in September 2023, the academy will offer 30 students a two-year academic programme that combines studying a BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in sport, coach education, full time football training and industry specific work experience along with opportunities to gain additional badges in coaching & refereeing.

Delivered in partnership with Brighter Futures, a grade 2 Ofsted GOOD provider, students aged 16 to 19 will study and train at the newly-developed Liverpool FA headquarters in Sefton.

With a brand new 3G pitch, refurbished classrooms and gym area, the site provides an ideal setting for the students to develop their understanding of the sports industry.
