About us

KCI Football Academy is a Nigerian private football academy, providing academic football courses for aspiring footballers aged 16 and up.

The courses we offer range from one week to three years and combine specialist football training with a first-class education. The quality of the academy will ensure students succeed at professional football clubs within Nigeria, Europe, the USA, or at a significantly higher level in their home country, with many going on to represent their national teams.


KCI Football Academy is a residential football academy based in Akabo, Ikeduru Local government area, a rural settlement in Imo state.

The Academy will benefit from top-class football facilities, including the use of top-quality 3G training pitches, study center, state of the art gym, and indoor facilities where the aim is to deliver intensive coaching sessions designed to improve and develop every individual’s game.

We will also provide a range of educational courses to our students who will also be linked to a range of online courses to build them personally as they achieve their dreams of becoming professional players.

We will also provide high-quality accommodation at the Academy which will feature en-suite rooms, study areas, games rooms, and an on-site kitchen. The accommodation is highly supervised and runs to a professional football club standard, and all of the highly-trained staff hold the relevant qualifications and child protection policies.

Away from the football and education courses, the Academy will also provide a host of other activities for the students, such as seminars, workshops, visits to football games, guest speakers including some of the big names in football, evening entertainment, team-building exercises, and many other activities that will not only benefit your football development but make your time here at the academy fun, enjoyable and life-changing.

If you believe you or your son has the ability, talent, and desire to play the game professionally, then joining the Kingdom Consulate International Football Academy (KCIFA) could prove to be the most important, and best, the decision of his life.
