Since 2013 Shamrock Rovers have been working closely with Roadstone to develop Ireland’s leading Academy facility in their Kingswood base. This has allowed the club to build the first professional academy in this country. This will enable the club to produce its own talent in the years to come and bring the best young players in Ireland to the club from an early age.
Phase 1 of the Academy opened in February 2017 which saw the installation of a fully floodlight FIFA Pro Astroturf pitch as well as the upgrading of the existing grass pitches.
Phase 2 will see the addition of a state-of-the-art Football Building. This will support the club’s ambition to attract and develop players with the potential to play at the highest level and is lead by Academy Director Shane Robinson.
