FC Madras Academy is more than just a residential school

We provide an environment that fosters growth, excellence, and passion for the beautiful game. Our football pitches, Scamper Park, Furry Field, and Bushy Tail Meadow set the stage for unforgettable matches and inspiring performances. In Drey Hall, equipped with cutting-edge AI technology, athletes find themselves immersed in a world of innovation and learning, supported by state-of-the-art classrooms, an auditorium, video analysis lab, library, and computer lab. Our high-performance center is a haven for athletes seeking to push their limits, with specialized regimes, critical recovery, and rehab facilities. Dive into excellence in our half-Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, and refuel at Acorn Café, where customized sports nutrition plans ensure peak performance.

Student Welfare & Entertainment

All work and no play makes jack indeed a dull boy. All the athletes are also provided to play games beyond football. We encourage the kids to play multiple sports for better teamwork, including strategy games. We take them through the journeys of other sportspersons for an added dose of inspiration. The upcoming facility will have a basketball court, indoor badminton courts, rubberised running tracks, and a swimming pool to cool off. Student well-being is a state of the mind, and to cater to that, we will have mandatory sessions in yoga & meditation, fun sessions of strength & conditioning, and field trips.


We have tied up with the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to ensure there is education provided to every student-athlete. Reiterating our vision which is to create champions in life, FC Madras is committed to student-athletes education, and hence facilitates the curriculum. The teachers are well-trained and also will provide 1-on-1 coaching if needed. The impetus is on grooming the kids with life skills and communication.

The day starts at 5:30 am when the residential athletes wake up and get ready for a good 2 hours of strength and conditioning regimen, followed by football drills. These drills are customized to every player’s needs, to ensure they get enough practice for the position they are being groomed for.

Sports Nutrition

A very carefully customised breakfast, which is prescribed for every athlete by our in-house nutritionist, is then served to the athletes. All the meals are planned and curated to ensure the athlete gets all the protein and the right amount of carbs for a strong and well-built physique that suits the position of the athlete.

Sports Integrated Education

Most academic institutions have a clear pathway when it comes to academics, sports is part of that curriculum. FC Madras Academy curriculum focuses on sports integrated education which encompasses a holistic development of a student-athlete in the academy with the core focus on football education.

Apart from international exposure and student-athlete exchange programs, the curriculum focuses on athlete mental well-being, sports nutrition, overall life skills, and awareness on media interaction and antidoping. 

Our goal at FC Madras is to create champions for life.
