EJ Lang

Goalkeeper (USA)

"Training at the IDA UK Academy is amazing. I have a better understanding of the match, my football IQ has gotten higher, and my distribution has gotten exceptional. 

The Academy helped me develop as a footballer, and gave me that extra push to know how much I was valued. It might be difficult to leave your family at home, but you make a whole new family here."

Laurens Ten Cate

Centreback (Netherlands)

"Being able to get on the field with coaches who are constantly pushing me and bonding with teammates off the field has been incredible. I’d really recommend it to anyone."
