  • CELTIC Soccer Academy is pleased to have joined forces with Wisconsin’s McFarland Soccer Association, the latest US club to join Celtic’s International Partnership Programme.

    This long-term partnership with the Wisconsin based club will involve the sharing of club methodologies, coaching camps and coach education with access to the Academy’s new online coaching curriculum for U8-U18s, available exclusively to partner clubs.

    It will also present McFarland with the opportunity to visit Glasgow to experience first-hand what life is like for an Academy player at Celtic Football Club.

    The club will also have the chance to send their coaches to Scotland to attend Celtic Soccer Academy’s renowned annual International Coaches Convention, giving the partner club’s coaching team an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how Celtic develop young players to maximise their potential.

    International Soccer Academy Manager, Willie McNab is delighted to welcome McFarland Soccer Association to the programme. He said: We are thrilled to welcome McFarland Soccer Association to our ever-growing North American Partnership Programme and we were impressed with their ethos and philosophy.

    “We are sure that this will be a mutually beneficial relationship for both clubs and we are looking forward to strengthening the relationship over the coming years.”

    Mike Vega, McFarland Soccer Youth Commissioner, added: “As a club we are very honoured to announce this partnership with Celtic FC, as they are a massive club with a rich history. 

    “The camps and coaching education that the players and our staff will have the opportunity to utilise are second to none.  We are excited to continue this relationship with Celtic FC for many years to come.”  

    Celtic Soccer Academy now has over 70 partner clubs across 20 countries worldwide.

    For more information on how your club or organisation can become part of our International Partnership Programme in North America, please contact International Soccer Academy Manager Willie McNab on [email protected] or call (0)141 551 4335.
