FFA - Header Player Pathway

At French Football Academy, our main objective is to train and place our players in the best environment for their development as players and human beings. Due to our relationship with the Fédération Française de Football and our placement in the New York/New Jersey area, we have the opportunity to place our players with domestic and international opportunities.

Domestic Opportunities

French Football Academy has built great relationships over the course of the past couple of year with the two Major League Soccer franchises NYCFC and New York Red Bulls. Several players from our academy have been scouted and invited to participate in match organized by these two clubs. Former FFF player Brandon Cipriano is currently a player in the NYCFC Academy.


International Opportunities

Due to our partnership with the Fédération Française de Football, we have the opportunity to send players for trials with any professional French soccer academy. Players MUST be part of the French Football Academy club to participate in these trials and will be supervised by our coaching staff and by Jean-Claude Lafargue (former director of INF Clairefontaine) before being sent abroad


College / University Opportunities

We are also in close relationship with FFFusa (Elite thlete Agency) specialized in college player’s placement and which is also an agency for MLS players and European players. Created in 2010, the agency has helped 720 soccer players to find a scholarship in US Colleges. They represent more than 50 players in MLS and 30 in USL since the creation of the agency. They have also been active in Europe where they have been able to represent great players as Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Florentin Pogba.
