Football Youth Academy

Shanghai Lions Football Youth AcademyBackground of our Shanghai Lions Football Youth Academy

We started with a Lions football youth academy back in 2012 a s we felt there were no playing opportunities for the older aged youth beside their school games in Shanghai !  It started with an U18 team and at first we organized friendly games against our legends and participated in an international tournament in Shanghai organized by the Shanghai Football Association.

We started to train seriously at the Century Park field and when the SPL U19 11 aside on Friday evenings started, we were happy to join ! The model to aim for the older youth players was hard to sustain as players in their final exam year will have less free time to play and of course once they are graduated most of them will move out from China.

This season, the opportunity came to take over the 14-18 year age group from Century Park & we thought that it will be an excellent base to start developing our football youth academy a step further.

Competition

This season we are joining the SPL U17 league on Saturdays and some of the older youth will get a chance to play with the Lions first team if they get selected.

Also, we’re starting to get players at a younger age (12-13 year old) joining our trainings. They’re of course welcome and our plan is to enter the SPL U14 league if we have enough players !
