In Spain, football is the most popular sport. The Spanish National football team has been successful in multiple tournaments. The Spanish word for football is “fútbol” and its well known Tiki-Taka style drives most opponents crazy. For sure, Spain is one of the best choices when it comes to Soccer Schools or “Academias de Fútbol”. The Valencian fútbol club, CF Cracks through its Fútbol Academy: CF Cracks, has proven to be a huge talent factory for professional teams. There is a long list of players, who once, were part of the CF Cracks Academy, and that over time with hard work and passion for the game, have managed to become great figures of football all around the world.
IFX Valencia International Soccer Academy uniquely combines soccer development with various academic tracks including high school or Spanish language study. In partnership with the renowned Valencian fútbol club, C.F. Cracks, IFX Valencia International Soccer Academy is geared toward competitive high school aged or young adult footballers from around the world looking to further their development as players while continuing their education.
As for Chris, in his first weeks at our international soccer academy in Nürnberg we saw many strong qualities in him and game composure and consistency that gave us the confidence in him to arrange the opportunity to trial with SG Quelle Fürth. He is a tall, strong, quick and team player that really enjoys the game. He is a possession player, and guarantees accurate passing. The right footer comes to Germany with USA Olympic Development Program U18 team experience and also international experience with various teams and programs in England.
