Since we started our journey in September 2015, our main focus has always been to allow all the players to live and play as professional players. We want every player to concentrate all his energy on his goal.
There have been many guest coaches in MV8 Academy, from UK, Italy, Denmark, Spain, etc, including ex professional and current pro footballers, and they shared their experience with MV8 boys, who had the chance to learn and get inspired by players with a long football career.
The MV8 players are able to enjoy the University Residence, that has all the necessary facilities for a modern lifestyle, including swimming pool, a new gym, a new tennis court and WiFi in all areas. They live in the residence during the season and share their everyday life, studying and group meetings, promoting coexistence and fellowship of the players.[fusion_text]All the players are also able to enjoy every morning training in the fantastic facilities of Pablo de Olavide University, which is located at 10 minutes walking distance from the residence. These facilities are te result of a very recent construction, including changing rooms, full size football pitches, futsal pitch, 1:5 a side indoor pitch, a full equipped gym and video room for game analysis.
Joining our Academy, enables all our students to learn and develop their technical, tactical, psychological and physical performance through training sessions, specifically designed and prepared to optimise the growth of our players, and make them attractive to the world of professional football.
Our methodology is based on letting all the players express and unlock their potential. At the MV8 Academy, we believe in personal development, each player is guided towards specific football session, supported by weekly motivated videos and mentoring on a one to one basis. We find that over many years of experience, the players improve and evolve in a more effective and quicker way.
Moreover, thanks to several partnerships with pro level and the collaboration with many nacional experts, all the players are given the opportunity to stand out in the local football scene, being able to turn into reality their dream of being professional footballers.
