Juventus Academy continues to expand its mission of helping kick-start the dream of young, aspiring footballers to make it big in the world of football after opening its newest location in Abu Dhabi.

The Academy’s newest branch at New York University Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island will provide coaching programmes and training platforms run and devised by Italian, Juventus-approved coaches, who are considered some of Europe’s greatest. The Academy selects its coaches based on their qualifications and commitment to the widely popular sport.  

As part of their training, the students of Juventus Academy, which also holds tournaments and leagues, will travel to Italy during the summer season for an opportunity to participate in the Juventus Training Experience and the Juventus Academy World Cup.

Salah Adib, CEO of Juventus Academy Abu Dhabi, said: “Our presence at New York University Abu Dhabi speaks of our tireless pursuit to nurture the talents of and train the world’s next football stars. Through our newest location, we are furthering not only our reach in the UAE capital but also our mission to implement the Juventus method across the country and the region. Our globally recognised technique combines the technical, mental, emotional and interpersonal aspects of football to ensure the holistic capacity development of our young students. We are confident that we will witness an increase in the number of our enrollees in the whole of Abu Dhabi given the popularity of the sport in the country and its great following. We are looking forward to being part of the journey of our new young students at New York University Abu Dhabi.”

Juventus Academy Abu Dhabi is renowned not only for its training techniques but also for its world-class system that constantly monitors the performances of its students until the final term’s evaluation. For its dedication to football, it has been awarded the Best Football Academy in the UAE at the UAE Teen & Fitness Awards.
