The V9 academy is the brainchild of England International and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy. His aim is to discover non-league talent and promote them to the professional game while providing them with a unique educational experience into what it takes to play at the top level.
The V9 Academy will hold its first intake of players at the City Football Academy on June 5th – 9th June 2017, the training complex of Manchester City FC located on the Etihad Campus. The academy will host 42 successful applicants who will be split into 3 teams of 14 players for a 5-day residential programme.
A host of professional clubs will be represented at the V9 Academy ranging from top domestic British clubs and clubs from further afield in Europe and beyond, all in search of the next Jamie Vardy.
Each successful applicant will be evaluated technically, tactically, physically, and mentally and will leave the academy with an individual development plan to help progress their game further on leaving the academy.
The V9 Academy will also be filmed as a Sky Sports documentary and give a ‘behind the scenes’ look into how coaching, sport science, fitness methodology, talent ID and mental training is carried out at the top level.
