Manchester City Football

Learn English playing beautiful football

The City Football School is an inspiring football education programme with Manchester City in the heart of the Etihad Campus.

City Football Language School combines English language with football coaching in a fully aligned and interactive programme, where the primary focus is to improve communication skills and develop confidence both on and off the pitch.

PLAY BEAUTIFUL FOOTBALL

Delivered by City Football Schools coaches who are experienced in Manchester City’s philosophy and methodology, football training sessions will provide an authentic insight into how Manchester City players train on a daily basis.

Players will receive 30 hours of football coaching throughout the programme, where coaches will continually integrate and reinforce learning both on and off the pitch.

Football coaching will focus on key areas such as:

  • Development of individual techniques and skills
  • Challenging 1v1 practices
  • Team play and working together
  • Improved understanding of how City perform through playing games

DEVELOP YOUR ENGLISH SKILLS

Delivered by qualified teachers with a passion for football, English language sessions draw on interactive technology to make learning an enjoyable and memorable experience.

In 30 hours of off-pitch learning, players will improve English communication skills by completing a dedicated journey through the world of football, discovering life as a player, a manager, an analyst and a journalist.

Each morning they will learn about key elements of the profession, and each afternoon they will put these skills into practice in real-life activities.
