The Desert Springs Football Academy

Inaugurated in 2004 by Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Geoff Hurst, the Desert Springs Football Academy, located in Almeria, south-east Spain provides a first-class, year-round training facility in an ideal climate for professional clubs in Europe.

The Desert Springs Football Academy, conveniently located within the resort, within walking distance from team accommodations, comprises an international size world-class quality grass pitch complimented with floodlights, shower and changing facilities. There is a hard standing area, which provides outside space for facilities such as a fee weights gym, stretching mats and a medical area. Furthermore, there is an additional dedicated goalkeeper training and seven-a-side games area.

Everything a football team requires is provided for, from the world-class quality of the football pitch, resort accommodation of the highest standards, full catering services, a host of other activities such as golf and tennis, a fully equipped Sports and Fitness Centre... and the dedicated services of our highly experienced staff.

The excellent standard of the Football Academy, facilities, first-rate organisation and service have made it the preferred choice of a number of high profile professional teams, both for pre and winter-season training camps and in the run-up to important matches and competitions.
