Bradford City Academy are always looking to ‘identify talent and develop the future generation’.

 If you live in Yorkshire and believe you have the ambition to become a professional footballer, we are holding open trials in Oct 2020.

Our previous open trials have proved to be a great success and given many young footballers an outlook into the footballing world, with numerous players signed into our programme. Last year, two trialists joined our academy and over 150 have since attended our development centres. The trials are for boys between the ages of 7 to 14  at Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Lane, Bradford BD10 0NR.

The trials will cost a fee of £10.00 per player. You must book in advance, due to COVID restrictions we will not be taking any bookings on the day.
