Manchester City Football Club and Aiglon College have today announced the launch of the first Manchester City Football School in Switzerland that will deliver world-class football education to students on campus.

Manchester City is delighted to bring the coaching philosophy and sporting excellence of the Premier League Champions to the Swiss Alps.

Based in the mountain ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon, Aiglon has a long-standing reputation as one of the most distinct schools in the world, focusing on balanced development of student’s mind, body and spirit.

Utilising their exceptional alpine location, students at Aiglon augment their studies with a range of sports and physical activities, from skiing to expeditions around their campus.

The new football programme will see students coached in City’s unique playing style which has achieved global success and iconic silverware in English domestic competitions.

The Manchester City Football School will begin in the school’s 2023 autumn term. The programme will commence with a curriculum offering for existing students and will include after-school and holiday clinics for the wider community. More information can be found at

Jorgina Busquets, Managing Director - Football Education & Recreation for City Football Group, commented: “Aiglon has a world-renowned reputation for excellence, developing students across academic and non-academic programmes. 

“We are excited to share the sporting expertise and coaching knowledge Manchester City has to offer with them and build upon their focus of mind, body and spirit.

“Through the power of partnership, our programme will proudly combine the unique City experience with the historic educational values of Aiglon College to promote personal development, health and friendship amongst participating students.”

The School Director, Nicola Sparrow, said: “Aiglon is the only school in Europe to have established this partnership with Manchester City.

“It is more than a transaction, but a real opportunity to develop a world-class football programme with the rigour and dedication to excellence that is at the heart of our approach.

“We are really impressed with the way Manchester City works at the intersection of football and holistic education to create unique learning opportunities for our students.”
