What we do

Future Academy combines pitch and classroom to make education exciting.

Future English

Our English school provides an innovative, personalised curriculum delivered by inspiring teachers. We improve academic performance by using games as a tool for education, making learning active, engaging and fun.

Future Football

Our football academy welcomes all ages and abilities. Local qualified coaches and professional footballers run daily sessions; from kickarounds for kids to elite performance training and weekend tournaments.

Our players evolve into students. 

We teach the language of the world, they learn how to write a new reality.

About US

Co-founders, Ahmad and Chris, met in 2017 in Burj Barajneh Camp, Beirut while volunteering for Médecins Sans Frontières. Their friendship is based on a shared love of football and a passionate belief that education should be freely available, inclusive and accessible to all children.
