Away from the newly refurbished education suite based at King Power Stadium the students also had success on the futsal court. The team reached the Soccer AM Cup group stages as seen on Sky Sports and also finished third in a competitive league against local rivals Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Mansfield Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
You could be among those to follow in the footsteps of our current students, who are well on their way to gaining a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport and additional valuable qualifications to include FA Coaching Awards – all of which allow access to University and employment in the sport & leisure industry while representing LCFC.
Ambassador Leicester City defender and LCFC in the Community Ambassador Liam Moore said: “Futsal is a great development tool for young players as the game is fast paced and very technical, which can be transferred to 11v11 football.
“The Futsal programme is a great way for school leavers to be part of a professional football club and compete against other pro clubs while gaining a qualification that is recognised by universities.”
First year student Jack Harrison added: “The reason I like the course is because I like being in a professional environment, I like working in a team and representing Leicester City Football Club.
“The Education part of the course is fantastic as it’s based at King Power Stadium, which is inspiring. After the course I am hoping to progress onto University and become a professional football coach.”
The course is open to current Year 11 & 12 Male students who wish to be part of an exciting and unique two year Education Programme.
