UEFA Academy Alumni Association (AAA)

The UEFA Academy Alumni Association is an independent, actively engaged and forward-looking community of over 3'000 graduates from UEFA Academy programmes worldwide. The AAA aims to create post study value for all UEFA Academy Alumni, in addition to fostering a thriving association composed of sport industry professionals working across football clubs, leagues, associations and other relevant stakeholders. It is not a department or division of UEFA or UEFA Academy.

Scope and objectives

The UEFA AAA represents the interests of an international community of alumni who have successfully completed UEFA Academy programmes. At its core, AAA membership represents a lifelong association with the UEFA Academy, connection to our thriving alumni community and access to an unmatched network across the world of football. 

Graduation marks the beginning of your alumni journey – and unlocks a series of invaluable experiences and benefits. These include:

  • Virtual and in-person alumni engagement opportunities.
  • Access to industry experts, former international footballers, and key decision makers.
  • Networking and Mentoring events. 
  • Expert seminars, panel discussions, and featured keynote speakers.
  • The UEFA AAA Summit.
  • Upcoming events & career-focused activities
  • Industry job opportunities (once we figure out how to feed this page)
  • Alumni Updates
  • Access to newsletter
  • Access to Alumni LinkedIn Group
