It’s official! We’re extending our support of the Irish FA and JD is the title sponsor of the Elite Academy, in collaboration with UEFA.
What’s the Academy?
The Irish FA Elite Academy is Northern Ireland’s only full-time residential academy. The new school year means that the academy is back and ready to develop a new group of elite players!
29 students from across the country have signed up. Covering the U15 and U16 age groups, the academy looks to develop the young players through a combination of sporting, school and life skills education. Ultimately creating the next generation of Northern Ireland internationals!
Stephen Bogle, the Irish FA’s Head of Sales and Marketing, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome JD as title sponsor for the Irish FA JD Academy in collaboration with UEFA. This partnership will help to continue the great work of the team and help to prepare the young players for life in professional football, ensuring they will be ready for international football with Northern Ireland and ready to achieve their full potential.”
