The stunning £10 million facility, which includes 10 grass, two full sized 3G and four five-a-side pitches, a full equipped strength and conditioning gym, catering and changing facilities was opened by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson in April 2016.
Players from all over the world train at the academy, working with coaches to formulate individual plans whilst hoping to catch the eye of watching talent scouts.
The partnership will also provide Fleetwood Town apprentices with a route into US college, USL and MLS clubs in the US, utilising NCE Soccer’s network of contacts.
NCE Soccer North Atlantic Director Scott has worked with FTIFA for a number of years and in a US East Coast ambassadorial role.
He has taken touring groups to Fleetwood and recommended players to attend their program previously.
“It really is a tremendous set-up and an amazing opportunity for young players to get a feel for the professional life.
“The facilities are first class and there are always scouts watching from clubs in the UK and around the world so, it’s an amazing opportunity.”
A spokesman for FTIFA, said: “FTIFA are proud to be part of the NCE try-out process in helping identify both male and female athletes for both NCE/FTIFA core programmes. The association will give young aspiring players an opportunity and pathway to sample elite football both in the US and UK.”
FTIFA work closely with Rossall School, a highly prestigious UK private school and together, the two organisations have been delivering the Rossall Elite Football Program since 2016. The program allows students to combine their studies with that of a young professional soccer player.
NCE Soccer student Henry Welles is currently completing his studies at Rossall School as a boarding student and has been able to sample life with Fleetwood Town.
