Footy Promotions Partners With Fleetwood Town Academy

Footy Promotions has partnered with Fleetwood Town International Football Academy (FTIFA).

FTIFA is Fleetwood Town Football Club’s program for aspiring footballers from across the UK and the rest of the world. The academy offers players a platform to showcase and further develop their talents in front of coaches and recruitment staff at a professional football club. UK based Fleetwood Town Football Club have a proven pathway of bringing young talent through their Premier League backed Academy program. In the last two years alone, they have seen 15 players progress into their first team, with three in the past year being sold onto the Premier League.

FTIFA programs include Pro Experience, Education & Football Program and Pathway to Pro.
The FTIFA Pro Experience provides an elite player development program for players aged 16-19 years old based at the club’s £10m state-of-the-art training complex Poolfoot Farm. Players will be immersed in a full-time training and games program at the home of Fleetwood Town Football Club’s first team and academy players. We will develop and educate each individual on the complexities of the modern-day game.

Their Education and Football Program which is partnered with Rossall School for players aged 11-16 years old offers the opportunity to study at a Private Independent School, whilst being immersed in the world of a professional football team.

The newest program from FTIFA is the Pathway to Pro Dubai which is a unique program that allows players aged 18-24 the opportunity to turn pro within the Fleetwood United club in Dubai and potential pathways within the UK and South Africa groups as well as their pro global partner clubs.

Vinzie Zuill, President of Footy Promotions, said, “We are excited to partner with FTIFA and provide more international pathways for Bermudian players. Due to Covid-19 we were not able to host the FTIFA Talent ID Clinic here in Bermuda as scheduled. However, we are looking forward to hosting the program in the future. Also, we plan to organize a football experience for a youth team to be involved in Fleetwood club training at the first team & academy training complex, Poolfoot Farm, or partner complex Rossall School. Which would include training sessions, strength and conditioning, nutrition, goal setting and motivation. We encourage players between 11 - 19 years old to contact us for more information on FTIFA programs.”

James Ward, International Partnerships Manager of Fleetwood Town Football Club, said, “We have had several talented Bermudan players over the past few years attend our international academy programmes. Vinzie and Footy Promotions have always been a huge support for us and we are extremely proud of partnering with them. The work they do on the ground in Bermuda and the opportunity they can create for player pathways is second to none.

We are super excited about the launch of our new Pathway to Pro Programme Dubai as it gives young aspiring professionals the real opportunity to sign as a professional and gain vital experience and develop under the watchful eye of the Fleetwood Group.

We look forward to working closely with Footy Promotions and to get out to Bermuda later on in the year to work with the talented players there.”
