We are the original Soccer School. As the UK’s first ever Soccer School we are passionate about what we do and have worked tirelessly over the last 40 years to remain the experts in our field.
When Sir Bobby Charlton lifted the FIFA World Cup and England became champions of the world in 1966, it was a great day for English football. 4 years later England were invited to defend that title.
The following TWO World Cup’s England shamefully did not even qualify.
This frustrated Sir Bobby Charlton and on the flight from back from the World Cup in Argentina 1978 he came up with a vision…. and pledged that day to make top quality coaching available to all players in the UK who wanted it and not only those players at football clubs – thus he established the Bobby Charlton Soccer Schools.
Something great began to happen almost immediately, that Sir Bobby did not foresee – players began to flock from all over the world to attend the Soccer Schools.
In the UK a young boy named David Beckham made his way up the motorway with his Dad, from London, to attend the Summer Camp and the rest is history. He was to go on to be a Manchester United superstar and the Captain of England.
In the past 40 years, we have seen a huge amount of talent and passion for the game. Players and parents realised that with the connections in the footballing world, Bobby Charlton Soccer Schools was a great place to come and showcase talent as a player or just enjoy a “once in a lifetime experience” as David Beckham called it.
Bobby Charlton Soccer Schools would go on to become a global brand and in the past has hosted camps in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, China, Japan, Indonesia, UAE and many more countries worldwide.
