Cirencester Town Academy

The football academy concept was initiated by Cirencester College and Cirencester Town Football Club in 1996.

The vision was to provide full-time soccer coaching in conjunction with full-time education. This model set the benchmark that numerous colleges have followed and it gained the coveted National Training Award in 1999.

The Arena has been built as part of Cirencester Town Football Club’s ongoing development programme. It provides the club, local community and commerce with a facility they can be proud of, and it also marks the development of the first such facility, outside the professional game, in the country.
