PREMIER ACADEMY LEAGUE
The Premier Academy League is the first league in Australia to offer a year-round, structured competition for Academy players.
The league has been tailor-made to what Academies believe is best for youth development, encompassing holistic values and approaches that develop players as people, not just as athletes.
The league is managed by the participating Academies themselves, ensuring control over the competition format with uniformity across the project, whilst maintaining the highest level of professionalism and operational quality.
The Sydney competition launched in October 2018 with the inaugural “Summer Season”, with 600 players participating within 58 teams across 10 Academies. 2019 will see the expansion of the Sydney competition and the launch of the Melbourne Premier Academy League.
