Newly established in 2014 AIFA is a not for profit football academy made up of several long standing Hong Kong based Football Clubs and Coaches.
The Coaches themselves are all Ex Professionals who have played at both National and International level thus bringing a wealth of experience, technical ability and guidance to children of all ages and nationalities.
Many of the Coaches have worked with various youth development squads across Asia holding certified International coaching qualifications.
In addition to our top level coaches AIFA has a governing board of directors who have run and continue to run global organisations thus bringing a wealth of practical business structure and experience.
AIFA has been designed to cater to the growing number of football participants who are looking to further develop their skills and understanding of the game.
AIFA is a “football academy” not school so our level of player is aimed at a quality intermediate where each player is required to have a level of capability that allows our coaches to work with them in both squad & individual formats.
It is the long term view that we will establish AIFA facilities in multiple Asian countries where we can provide less fortunate players with the opportunity that is otherwise unattainable. We will look to establish relationships with similar funded football schools in Bangkok Thailand, Manila Philippines, Taipei Taiwan, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and so on.
The philosophy behind AIFA is to provide aspiring players with the opportunity to have;
1. Top level coaching by experienced professionals.
2. The ability to develop personally in a healthy team environment.
3. The opportunity to play competitive football at both a local and International level.
4. The chance to be recognised and rewarded on a wider footballing stage.
5. A structured path for personal growth & self-confidence.
