We’re delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Premier League side Fulham FC, as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner.
This exciting partnership will see FirstPoint USA provide free guidance to Fulham FC’s released Academy players under it’s ‘Academy Welfare Initiative’; securing their place 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 released 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 Fulham FC have towards supporting the welfare of players released by the Academy.
At the point that those players are leaving Fulham FC, 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 school 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 recent partnership, FirstPoint USA's Chief Executive, Andrew Kean, has stated, "We are delighted to secure a formal partnership with Fulham Football Club and further extend our relationship with the club and its Academy. As Fulham embark on a new and exciting season in the English Premier League, we will be supporting both the Academy and its staff, creating new opportunities for released academy scholars at universities throughout the USA."
