Why Eintracht Frankfurt

The dream of becoming the best you can be.

Every footballer’s career started in childhood, yet being gifted and talented alone is not enough to compete at the highest level and make the dream of becoming a professional footballer come true. Aside from skill and talent, there is another major factor that is essential: professional training and coaching from the early days onwards.

The Eintracht Frankfurt integrated academy team coaching staff includes a full-time UEFA A licensed head coach, an assistant coach/goalkeeper coach, an athletic coach, and a physiotherapist. Armin Kraaz, Head of Sports Projects Americas (2010 – 2019 Eintracht Frankfurt, Academy Director) and Nicolai Adam, Head of International Sports Projects (UEFA Pro License and Former India U17 National Team Head Coach) will provide program oversight.

The intensity and length of the program also allow coaches to track progress, expose players to top youth German Bundesliga talent and scouts, and promote deep sporting and personal development.

Where Tradition Meets Innovation

A founding member of Bundesliga with more than 120 years of tradition, Eintracht Frankfurt is a German Bundesliga club and a UEFA Cup winner plus the 5-time German Cup winner with almost 100,000 club members. Eintracht Frankfurt has 10 homegrown first-team players and is looking for the next young superstar.

The Best Players Need to Train with Amazing Coaches

The International Soccer Academy partnership with Eintracht Frankfurt gives top players the rare opportunity to intensely develop their football skills. Mirroring the structure of the Eintracht Frankfurt Academy, players will experience what a myriad of youth international players already have — the life of a professional with a rigorous training schedule, stimulating school curriculum, and challenging test matches against top youth Bundesliga clubs.

The Academy

Eintracht Frankfurt tracks and observes the development of talented players and invites only the best to train at their Bundesliga Academy. International Soccer Academy and Eintracht Frankfurt have collaborated on the methodology for the groundbreaking Integrated Eintracht Frankfurt Academy.

The main goal of Eintracht Frankfurt Academy is to develop a child from a young talent to a professional player.
