If you have a passion and talent for football then this is the place for you. Established in 2000, Hopwood Hall Football Academy has produced huge amounts of successful alumni. Over the years we have won over 40 trophies both locally and overseas. The academy has outstanding on site facilities and we run annual overseas residentials.
We are now delighted to have entered a new partnership with Paris Saint-Germain Academy England. Paris Saint-Germain Academy England is dedicated to developing players of all abilities. Fitness, health, wellbeing and nutrition are fundamental parts within the Academy. Each coach is specially trained in the Paris Saint-Germain methodology so that our students learn the PSG way!
The sessions are devised by the club’s technical staff and follow the Paris Saint-Germain playing philosophy, while adapting the position and level of each player. As a student at Hopwood Hall College you become part of the Paris Saint-Germain family and will play the same way as the youth and first team setup in Paris.
The goal of the partnership is to not only develop the football players but also ensure that each individual’s educational targets are achieved.
