University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) agreed a partnership with the English Colleges Football Association (ECFA) in 2019.

The agreement saw UCFB become the official higher education partner and sponsor of the English Colleges Football Association (ECFA) national football teams.

In addition, the partnership also involves UCFB hosting select ECFA national team fixtures for both its men’s and women’s teams, as well as the possibility of UCFB students undertaking work experience with the ECFA, such as helping to host these fixtures.

UCFB, which has campuses in London and Manchester with Wembley and Etihad stadiums at their heart, will provide opportunities for ECFA trialists and players to kick off their career in sport with a unique degree at the institution.

Career prospects are a key aspect of the agreement between UCFB and the ECFA, with UCFB graduates employed at Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Watford, Arsenal and Chelsea, with numerous ex-students also in roles at The Football Association, the Scottish Professional Football League and dozens of English Football League clubs.

Commenting on the partnership in 2019, Alice Kempski, National Football Development Manager at AoC Sport, said: “It’s incredibly exciting for us to be able to link up with an institution like UCFB. The opportunities they provide for young people looking to go on and work in the world of sport are second to none, so for our players and teams to have that link-up and inside look at how UCFB do things is invaluable.”
