About Pro Elite Football Academy

Family, Community and Customer Service is at our heart

Our objective is to become the pre-school football academy of choice for parents around the United Kingdom. Through franchising with individuals that we believe are the right fit to carry the brand into new territories, together we believe we can achieve this over the next 5 years

Family is at the centre of everything that we do at Pro Elite. Our Brand means everything to those who wear it with pride and with yearly Fun Days, BBQ’s, Christmas Parties and more, we are constantly trying to build the best community, one that people can be proud to be a part of. 

The franchisor leadership team has grown to include experts in business development, sales, marketing and customer service.  

Why are we franchising?

We are experiencing a sustained growth in demand for our academies, with over 1000 children in 12 close-by locations at the moment. We know we have built over time the right formula and want to open this businessup nationally via franchising

Of course, we want to build a large and success brand and business, but also because coaching comes from the heart and we want to give as many children as possible the opportunity to experience our coaching, family ethos and community cohesion through football

We realise in a competitive franchising field of football coaching clubs and academies, we may not be the cheapest, but we truly believe we are the best. Offering something more to our customers and just as important, more for our franchisees, both as a mentally rewarding business, but also financially rewarding

We want people who have as much passion for what they do as we do

Work From Home

This is a franchise that can be operated from a home office, which will help you keep your costs low in the beginning. Although franchisees may wish to grow into offices and employ support staff as the business grows.

Future Growth

Pro Elite Football Academy is virtually unique in its franchise business model, that as you grow, you can grow with it. You even have the choice to choose different franchise packages from day 1.

We operate two different levels of franchise. Level 1 (Silver) and Level 2 (Platinum) Platinum gives you the opportunity to double the number of venues you operate from and of course, as you grow in your existing venues and as long as you meet our criteria, there is nothing stopping your purchasing further venues.

Pro Elite Football Academy's history

Who are Pro Elite Football Academy

Launched in 2016, with experience coaching in Premier League Football Academy set-ups, we wanted to create a Football Academy that embodied all that we believed a Football Academy should be; Quality Coaching, A Caring environment and a place that leaves an impact that goes beyond football. The model, capturing attention from parents with toddlers right through to late-teens, is the first of its kind in The UK and has since grown to over 1000 children, 12 locations and 50 members of staff in just one small area.
