Many professional footballers would like to combine their active football career with education. The FIFPro Online Academy is the answer for them.


Where can a player find an educational programme which will fit in with his active career? A football career should not have to suffer due to the hours a player  has to put into your educational programme.


Training camps, matches abroad and injuries are just three examples of how important it is for players to be flexible.


Traditional full time educational programmes simply cannot be combined with a football career.
FIFPro has developed an educational programme with the Danish University UCN which can be combined with a players sports career.


The lessons will be given when it suits the player, online in a virtual class with a real teacher. If he cannot attend because of training or your match schedule, all lessons are recorded so that he can follow them at another time. This gives him all the freedom he need as a professional football player.


The cooperation agreement between FIFPro and UCN (University College Nordjylland in Aalborg, Denmark has been signed today. Player recruitment has already started. The programme will start in September 2011.
