Pompey Academy is Portsmouth Football Club's development system. Its mission is to produce players ready for first team football.
With a focus on nurturing raw talent and preparing players for the professional game, Pompey Academy is dedicated to developing well-rounded individuals who embody the Pompey spirit, both on and off the pitch.
Portsmouth FC has a great history of producing first team players from the Academy and the club is committed to identifying, developing and supporting talented young footballers for them to achieve their maximum potential in a positive, supportive and professional learning environment.
Trials With Pompey Academy
Pompey Academy has an established network of volunteer and paid scouts, who cover many football games for players aged 7-18 years each week.
This enables the academy to identify talented players with the potential to be invited to trial for a place in the academy.
Only through this network will the academy recruit players, using the scout's measured knowledge of existing player levels and specific criteria that have been identified already.
This structure is the only method of gaining a trial with the club's academy, meaning trials are not offered for players or agents who contact the club directly.
