Host Families Needed Near Our City Football Academy

As Manchester City Football Club grows, it continues to cultivate local, national and international talent. In order that we can create the best conditions for our young players to develop they need to be in quick and/or easy reach of our training facilities (and school).

Can you help with accommodation for our young players?

We have more young players joining our development programmes all the time. Generally these players are aged between 12 and 18, both boys and girls, and some require high quality accommodation on either a temporary, part-time or full-time basis. The requirement ranges from hosting trialists for several days or weeks at a time, to longer term placements for up to 34 weeks per year for several nights each week. It may also mean permanent accommodation for players from further afield choosing to live full-time in Manchester.

We require a small number of high quality homes for either two or three players in each unit (you must have at least two rooms available). Players will require a spacious single or double bedroom, quality bed and mattress, wireless internet access, desk and storage, some personal space, outdoor space, and their meals (breakfast and evening) and personal laundry to be provided. Access to pay-TV (Sky Sports, Virgin, BT Sport) or similar is preferred.

Payment and Expenses

The Club operates in a fast moving environment so we require host families who are flexible and committed and understand that there may be times when a bed-space is not required. As such football club makes a generous all-inclusive payment to host families which covers all the costs of the arrangement and recognises the commitment required from the family.

Distance and Transport

Whilst some of the players’ transportation requirements are arranged by the club (we also encourage using public transport for many journeys), they can be quite complex. Thus we need your accommodation to be a short distance from our new City Football Academy (M11 4TQ) and near a metro station, on a suitable bus route, or on our transport route and we may ask the host family to undertake some of the transportation (for which mileage expenses are paid).

More Information

If you have experience of bringing up children or looking after someone else’s child then you might be able to help us. All you would need to do is provide a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment for our players to rest and recuperate after a day’s training or school. Our young players would also expect some of the support normally given by their own parents when living at home.

All host family members over 16 will be subject to a criminal records check and the household will undergo a rigorous suitability assessment of both the accommodation and people living there.

If you think you might be interested in joining our Host Family Team please contact Nic Scott on 0161 438 7804 or nic.scott@mancity.com for an informal chat to learn more about helping us with the provision of accommodation for our players.
