Manchester City and Dwight School Hanoi have today announced the launch of the first Manchester City Football School in Vietnam that will offer bespoke football education for students based at their brand-new state of the art campus.

Dwight School Hanoi is the newest addition to the global network of Dwight Schools and is poised to shape young minds in a cutting-edge 41,000 m² campus at The Manor Central Park, Hanoi.

Designed by architect Carlos Zapata, this visionary space embodies Dwight’s commitment to igniting the spark of genius in every child.

From Preschool to Grade 12, the campus fosters academic excellence, collaborative exploration, and creativity—promising an unparalleled educational journey.

The football programme, set to kick off in August 2024 when Dwight School Hanoi opens its doors, will introduce students to Manchester City’s distinctive playing style and coaching philosophy renowned for achieving success in English, European and Global competitions.

The curriculum will cater to Dwight students of all ages and grade levels, during PE classes, after school programmes, weekend football, and competitive football teams of the school.

Jorgina Busquets, Managing Director - Football Education, Recreation & Partner Clubs for City Football Group, commented:

“From the moment we met Vice Chancellor Blake Spahn and the team behind Dwight globally, we could see they have been trailblazers in education, raising the bar on academic excellence and beyond.

“We are eager to bring Manchester City’s approach and coaching expertise to their Hanoi school, whilst fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation.

“The partnership builds on Manchester City Football Club’s legacy, now extending beyond the pitch to shape young minds and bodies at Dwight School Hanoi. Both institutions envision a future where academic and athletic achievements go hand in hand.”

Dwight School Hanoi’s Head of School, Brantley Turner, said: “Manchester City’s dedication to player development, health and education resonates deeply with our own values at Dwight School Hanoi and this partnership is a reflection of our commitment to providing an enriching and diverse learning experience for our students.

“We are pleased to collaborate with a globally elite football club that mirrors our commitment to exceptional standards to create a unique platform providing aspiring young student athletes with world-class coaching.

“This football programme enables us to extend our ethos of ‘igniting the spark of genius in every child’ to the pitch, where discipline, teamwork, and strategic thinking are as vital as they are in our classrooms.”
