Auckland City FC strives to achieve excellence on and off the field. Our Academy is focused on preparing players for the demands of the modern game.

Established in 2019, we offer a range of football and futsal development programs for ages 6 to 17. Players are exposed to our age-specific training methods that are ultimately aimed to enhance decision-making, creativity, and versatility. Attention is also given to how individuals conduct themselves at training and our youth players are encouraged to take ownership of their football life.

Auckland City FC holds the New Zealand Football ‘Skills Centre’ and ‘Talent Development Program’ accreditations and boasts one of the most experienced staff across football and futsal.

“Every player will receive a well-rounded football education, making sure that they have the building blocks of personal traits and technical ability to play the Auckland City style.” - Ivan Vicelich, Technical Director
