About academy

Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Robin van Persie, Jordy Clasie, Stefan de Vrij, Bruno Martins Indi… just a handful of the graduates from Feyenoord Academy that have gone on to make their names at elite European clubs and on the international scene.

Feyenoord Academy is the leading youth development programme in the Netherlands. Feyenoord Academy offers a tailor-made daily elite sport training and education programme based at the Varkenoord training complex a few steps from De Kuip. It’s an optimal setting for talented youngsters to develop their potential as they work towards realising their ultimate dream of signing a professional contract and breaking into the Feyenoord first team.

Many of them have already achieved one of their ambitions: playing on the pitch in the huge stadium next to the training pitch. Every season players advance to the Dutch and international stage.

Feyenoord Academy has won the Rinus Michels Award for the best youth academy in the Netherlands for five years running. No surprise, then, that Feyenoord Academy is renowned at home and abroad.
