Soccer players from all over the world will descend on York and Newcastle in July & October 2020 as part of our 8 & 10 Day UK Taster Trips at the i2i International Soccer Academy.

These trips are an excellent opportunity which give players a unique insight into living, studying and playing in England, whilst undertaking a three year university degree at York St John University (YSJ) or Northumbria University.

OCTOBER 8 DAY TRIP -  6th October to 13th October 2020 

The packed schedule will combine daily training sessions and matches with tours of both universities, a live professional fixture and a EPL stadium tour.

All of the players on the taster trip will also have access to all of YSJ's and Northumbria Universities ‘state of the art’ sports facilities – from the grass and turf (3G) pitches to the strength & conditioning suite.

Players who attend the taster will be expertly assessed by our former EPL coaches, and those with the required playing ability coupled with the required academic background, will be shortlisted for a full time degree at York St John University or Northumbria University.

Head of Recruitment at the i2i International Soccer Academy Corey Roper said: "Players often ask me what life will be like as a student with the i2i International Soccer Academy. This 10 Day UK Taster Trip is designed to answer that question and more. It gives the players the opportunity to experience every element of the Academy for themselves, as well as experiencing both York St John University and Northumbria University.

"Choosing a University is one of the biggest decisions we ever have to make in life, but we're confident that once a player has experienced the wide range of opportunities available at the i2i International Soccer Academy, they will be certain that this is where they want to spend the next three years."
