TFA Junior Birthday Party






The Football Academy was formed to provide the opportunities for youth elite soccer players to train and compete in Dubai and internationally. Our mission is to develop soccer skills, as well as maintain an environment that embodies the core values of integrity, leadership, perseverance, respect and teamwork while enhancing self-esteem, promoting self-confidence and cultivating a life long passion for the beautiful game of soccer. While our teams strive to compete at the highest levels of competition, TFA is fully committed to player development.
