Ross County FC - Official USA University Scholarship Partner

2 min read

We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with Ross County FC, as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner.

This exciting partnership will see FirstPoint USA provide free guidance to Ross County FC’s released Academy players under it’s ‘Academy Welfare Initiative’; securing their placement at American colleges and universities on soccer scholarships.

The creation of a pathway to the United States will provide an alternative route for those players releases from the club. Under the ‘Academy Welfare Initiative’, FirstPoint USA’s services will be provided at no cost to the athlete, their family or the club and emphasises the dedication Ross County FC have towards supporting the welfare of players released by the Academy.

At the point that those players are leaving Ross County, we will meet and discuss the options with them about possibly making the move to the US and playing their sport there. We’ll help them every step of the way, in sourcing them the best possible deal. We’ll find the scholarship that’s the ‘right fit’ for them; that will take them to America, keep them in the game, keep them playing, and will get them that all-important university degree that will set them up for life.

With regards to our new partnership, FirstPoint USA's Head of Soccer, George Thomson, has stated, "We are delighted to have secured a new partnership with Ross County Football Club. This is a great opportunity for players who have been released from the Academy, but have ambition to continue playing their sport at an elite level in the U.S; whilst also securing a university degree. I think I can say on behalf of everyone at FirstPoint USA, we are thoroughly looking forward to working with Ross County FC in the future."
