FirstPoint helping hundreds of released Academy footballers across England thanks to new partnership

Our latest partnership announced today will provide a lifeline to hundreds of talented male and female footballers in the English league system who face being released this summer. 

The exclusive agreement will be activated through League Football Education, the English Football League’s apprenticeship programme across the Championship, League One and League Two.

FirstPoint expect hundreds of young, talented male and female footballers to, very unfortunately, be released in the coming weeks. A large number of EFL clubs’ Academy players and apprentices are expected to depart their clubs – in normal circumstances around 50% move on, but that figure may rise further this year. 

We are committed to working with LFE to support through the process those who are open to the opportunity that is a US sports scholarship and help them through every stage of that life-changing transition.

The partnership will also offer support to LFE's Community Trust Study Programme learners, namely 16-18 year-old male and female players studying sport-related qualifications while representing their club at football.

LFE was established in 2004 by the EFL and the Professional Footballers’ Association to deliver Apprenticeship Programmes to 16 to 18-year-old players at EFL clubs. 

The partnership is a huge opportunity for those young footballers, as well as for the English Football League clubs with the challenges they currently face as a result of the pandemic.
