Trials for our Football Academy with Stamford AFC Football Club are now open. New College Stamford’s Football Academy allows you to gain the expert training to become a semi-professional footballer, or the knowledge for a career in football management.
You will gain coaching from industry professionals and former professional football players, whilst earning an accredited sporting qualification and playing regular football matches against other teams in competitive leagues.
Training will take place at our Borderville Sports Centre, home to Stamford AFC’s Zeeco Stadium. The Centre has been designed specifically for sports development and training. It boasts state-of-the-art facilities such as a 3G floodlit artificial grass pitch, gym, FA rated pitch and 735sq metre multi-purpose sprung-floor sports hall. Borderville’s sports hall is designed for multi-purpose use and can be transformed to host a multitude of sports, many to a national level.
When the Borderville Sports Centre, David Dein (Vice Chairman of Arsenal and the FA), described Borderville as “The best training facility I’ve seen, it is extraordinary! There is a great opportunity here for students to develop their sporting careers and for the College as a whole to get involved in sports and outdoor activities”.
