A warm welcome to the IFA Germany International Football Academy GmbH, the club-independent international football academy. We are based in Ebern in Bavaria, about 70 km north of Nuremberg.
Our players aged 18-21 are trained in our football academy for 12-18 months exclusively by internationally experienced and licensed coaches. In order to simplify communication and, above all, to strengthen it, there are language courses in German, English and Spanish. Our players are referred to our cooperation clubs according to their skill level.
Our modern building has been optimized for use as a football academy and, in addition to living spaces for our footballers and coaches, also offers relaxation areas, dining rooms, training rooms, our own medical department and wellness and spa facilities. Fitness areas. The spacious, modern campus also leaves nothing to be desired with its 2 sustainable natural grass pitches (irrigation through its own cistern) and a sports hall.
Our core competence is to grind rough diamonds into diamonds, this is done according to the latest sporting knowledge. Countless top players around the world are waiting to be discovered and promoted by us. Our players receive professional support throughout their training and are trained in both practice and theory. In this way, we offer our students an opportunity that they would not otherwise have to enjoy professional scouting.
In addition to new talents, we are also committed to looking after existing professional players, even if they are already under contract. Often players have little or no playing time. We take on these players, work with them on their strengths or weaknesses and then refer them to partner clubs.
