Ethos & Vision

Providing a proven pathway between local leagues and Premier League Academies. Encouragement and support for aspiring youth footballers to realize their full potential.

Helping young players see “what they can be, rather than what they are”.

Achieving this is made possible thanks to the high quality, experience and qualified status of our coaches, the back room members, our partners and investors.

Through our links with professional clubs, semi professional clubs and Universities, our players can have realistic goals and life enhancing opportunities that are created through their footballing talents.

We aim to encourage our players towards pro and semi pro careers, or towards University Scholarships in the UK and abroad.

Our Academy play matches against competition that will challenge them. We play against pro academies and other Academies.

Bristol Inner City’s players are taught how to play football, not how to win at the cost of player development.

We aim to be different by integrating inner city children with those of the surrounding areas creating teams from wide ranging social and economic backgrounds. Breaking financial and social economic barriers that are common throughout UK development centres, thanks to our investors, partners and location.

BIC operates a coaching plan for the year and a playing style common across all age groups – similar to that of pro clubs.
