Concept: The aim of the BFF Academies would be to produce International quality Players for the National Team and Clubs over the next four years with an eye on participation in the AFC Cup.
The concept of the Academy is to give the talented players between 13 and 19 (years old) a pathway for the future. The very best players will progress into an Elite academy and those players will also be part of the National Team.
There are 2 operational Academies in Thimphu and Gelephu at the moment with a target of setting up more in different parts of the country in the future. Each Academy has an artificial/natural football turf, gymnasium, mess & hostel facilities and schooling facility making it an apt setup for a residential football training Programme.
