BCFC Academy Trials

Bradford City Academy are always looking to ‘identify talent and develop the future generation’, giving local players the chance to succeed.

If you live in Yorkshire and believe you have the ambition to become a professional footballer, we hold open trials twice a year

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. The trials are for boys between the ages of 8 to 15  at Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Lane, Bradford BD10 0NR.

The trials will cost a fee of £5.00 per player. You must book in advance, we will not be taking any bookings on the day.
