Olé Football Academy is extremely proud to announce a ground-breaking partnership with FirstPoint USA, the world's leading sports scholarship agency. This collaboration aims to provide opportunities for young Olé Football Academy athletes to pursue academic and athletic excellence in the United States.
Since 1997, Olé Football Academy has been at the forefront of nurturing football talent in New Zealand, with a track record of producing players who have represented the country at international levels and gained scholarships to prestigious U.S. universities.

The partnership will kick off with an exclusive webinar hosted by FirstPoint USA, tailored for the families of Olé Football Academy players. This webinar will provide insights into the opportunities available in the U.S. and the process of securing sports scholarships. It will be a unique chance for athletes and their families to understand the avenues for combining sports with higher education in the USA.
