Opening of an FF Academy in Singapore
After New York, the French Football Federation is opening a new FF Academy in Singapore on Saturday October 17, 2020.
Led by Patrick Vallée, who has coached several National teams as well as first division teams in China and Singapore, the FF Academy in Singapore will welcome up to 400 young players. They will be received and coached by a dozen or so coaches directly trained on site by Patrick Vallée, holder of the UEFA A Licence.
"I am immensely proud to take this job. Working under the aegis of the FFF, representing this world-renowned institution and conveying its positive image, particularly in terms of training, has convinced me. The aim is to provide the know-how to a generation of young players and ensure it is within everyone's reach," says Patrick Vallée. The Academy will be located at the Our Tampines Hub (OTH), an ultra-modern sports complex in central Singapore, as well as at the GEMS World Academy (GWA), an international school in Singapore with high-quality infrastructure. The academy will be managed administratively by on-site Silkroad agency.
"After opening a similar centre in New York in 2019, our office in China, and our various technical partnerships with foreign federations in recent seasons, the FFF is very pleased to open this new academy. The FFF is strengthening its international presence and continuing its policy of developing and promoting French football internationally," explains Noël Le Graët.
