2 min read

At FirstPoint USA, we are delighted to announce our recent partnership with Scottish Championship Champions, St Mirren FC, as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner.

This unique partnership sees FirstPoint USA providing free guidance and advice to released Academy players under its 'Academy Welfare Initiative'; securing their placement at American colleges and universities on soccer scholarships.

Here, FirstPoint USA's Chief Operating Officer, Rob Shorthouse, discusses our our exciting new partnership.

The creation of a pathway to the United States will provide another option to consider for those players released from the club. Under the 'Academy Welfare Initiative', FirstPoint USA's services are provided at no cost to the player, their family or the club and underlines the commitment St Mirren FC have made towards supporting the welfare of players released by the Academy.

At the point that those players are leaving St Mirren, we're going to meet with them, we're going to discuss the options with them about possibly moving to the US and playing their sport there, and we're going to help them every step of the way in sourcing the best possible deal for them. We'll find them the right scholarship that takes them to America, keeps them in the game, keeps them playing, and gets them that degree that will set them up for life.
