• At Football Development Australia we are very proud of the culture, camaraderie and consistency that our coaches, players, teams and parents have created over many years working together.

    We enjoy our time on and off the pitch and live for football!

    Together we embrace and learn from every experience. Whether it be our weekly training and competition, interstate tournaments or overseas tours to Germany and the USA, we’re constantly evolving and become better players, coaches and people.

    Our culture promotes inclusion and acceptance.

Academy Program

The Football Development Australia Youth Academy Program is a commitment to the long term personal and football development of our players and teams.

Players who are accepted into the program following their trial period will join an existing team who play and train all year round.

Our players and teams develop each year via a summer pre-season training period, which includes trial matches and a residential football training camp. Our teams then progress into their participation in winter competition league and cup competitions.

We also really enjoy travelling interstate for tournaments and organising international tours to Germany.

We invite U12 to U18 players to trial for our 2022/2023 squads.

Sports Management

Football Development Australia’s pathway offers our most dedicated and talented players the opportunity move to Europe to join professional and semi professional teams.

Moving to Europe from Australia is big challenge for any youth footballer on so many levels.

Our Sports Management team facilitates trial periods at European football clubs with a particular emphasis on opportunities in Germany.

We work closely with our players and European club contacts to find the right cultural and football fit for both parties.

Introductory squad and player tours to Germany include player profiling, match practice, training sessions with local coaches and teams and intensive German language courses so that players have a full immersion living experience before deciding to make the move to play overseas.

Football Development Australia’s corporate football events bring staff, supporters and families together each year for a unique corporate team sport experience.

The tournaments also offer a unique team building and business networking experience as players and supporters connect over the course of the day’s football.

Since 2010 teams from companies such as Macquarie Bank, Reserve Bank of Australia, KPMG, SAP, Westfield, Laing O’Rourke, Cisco, Oracle, Randstad, Dimension Data, BMW, Nissan, Volkswagen, Toyota, Hyundai, Sony, Qantas, Roche, Leaseplan and many more have taken part in FDA’s corporate football events each year.

The tournaments are based on a FIFA World Cup format with a round robin group stage followed by the excitement of the knock out phase and often the dreaded penalty shoot out.
