The Academy

The CSKA players Bozhidar Chorbadzhiyski, Stanislav Manolev, Nikolay Bodurov and Fernando Karanga recorded a video to encourage the young football talents to join the CSKA – London Football Academy and become a part of the “red” family.

The CSKA – London Football Academy for more than 1 year started preparing children, who want to become professional football players. The CSKA management supported the idea for a youth talents academy in the United Kingdom and at 09/09/2017 the first training sessions were held.

Milko Georgiev – Administrative director of CSKA-Sofia Football Club


Velizar Dimitrov – Former legend player of CSKA-Sofia, Metalurg(Donetsk – Ukraine) and with more than 30 international games for Bulgaria. Now chief scout of CSKA-Sofia Football Club


The academy is growing fast, with more than 80 children joined already in our “family”. The training is held every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at the best training base in East London – Draper’s Field Recreation Ground, Leyton High Road. Along with the Bulgarian children, there are ones from Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania, Italy and England. And the interest continues growing.
