The RIFA programme combines world-class British education and the excellence of English football, providing young people an opportunity to thrive on and off the pitch.

RIFA not only develops young people’s sporting skills, but also focuses on them developing a sense of self-belief, self-discipline and self-worth that can be communicated through all aspects of their lives.

The academy offers a clear and unique pathway for students with opportunities into the professional football arena through the quality of the programme, and strong partnerships with professional football clubs globally.

We are able to offer visa support, via Newland Chase Education.
