Ireland’s First Professional Academy

The Shamrock Rovers Academy is the first professional youth academy in the history of Ireland with 220 elite players between the age of 8 and 19. The Shamrock Rovers Academy is an equivalent standard to English Premier League clubs and will be transformational for Shamrock Rovers and youth football in Ireland.
The SRFC Academy is based at Roadstone Group Social Club in Kingswood and delivers an environment that promotes excellence, nurtures the best young Irish talent and produces professional players capable of playing for the SRFC first team and beyond. The SRFC Academy develops rounded, well-educated people that are fully equipped for life as a professional footballer or otherwise.
Our Academy now provides the basis to deliver a Football Pathway for elite players from a very young age to our professional senior team
