Meet the stars: Juve legend Trezeguet with academy members

Fancy yourself as the next Cristiano Ronaldo? Now’s the time to lace up your boots as the Juventus Academy opens its doors for another season.

With locations operating in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and RAK, the Juventus Academy offers first-class football coaching for youngsters in the UAE. There are nine different Academies in total across the UAE, each with the aim of helping young players take their first steps into the football world by educating them with the Juventus method. Made up of high-level professionals, the Juventus Academy has a team of coaches specifically selected for their enthusiasm and qualifications.

All coaches hold Italian and European Football Federation and UEFA certificates along with a minimum of three years of football experience. The project has been operating in the UAE since 2015 and has helped thousands of kids take their game to the next level.

The coaching sessions are designed to encourage players in all positions to play and improve themselves both on and off the pitch. There are specialist goalkeeper programs, psychologist visits, internal leagues (JLega), leagues and tournaments, elite teams, MENA J League and JUAE Cup (short UAE weekend) and more to get involved in. Juventus Academy organise meetings with Juventus legends such as David Trezeguet and Edgar Davids and its teams will also fly again to Italy for the Juventus Training Experience and Juventus Academy World Cup, facing Juventus Academies from around the world.

This summer, Sport360 flew with the UAE teams and followed their progress as they battled it out to win the coveted trophy.
