LCFC Academy Recruitment Player Nomination Scheme

The Leicester City Player Nomination scheme gives coaches, club officials and grassroots enthusiasts the opportunity to nominate talented players who have participated in ESF, who will then be considered for a trial at Leicester City Academy.

Leicester city philosophy and culture

To provide an outstanding, safe and positive player-centred learning environment, with a vision for the future. By taking an individual and holistic approach to player and staff development, we will create a stimulating, challenging, expressive and enjoyable learning environment. Staff and players are encouraged to think independently and take responsibility for their development. We expect our players will have a good technical and tactical acumen, play through the thirds with creative expression, and develop an appropriate competitive mentality based on fair play and respect.

Details of Elite Performance


Please detail why you believe Leicester City should trial the nominated player (strengths & weakness etc).

Please note, not all nominated players will receive a trial. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you do not notify the player that they have been nominated. The decision as to whether or not a player will receive a trial will be taken by Leicester City Academy, who will contact successful applicants through the appropriate channels. It is not possible for ESF Events to follow up individual nominations.

ESF Venues

The experience of being away together on tour is as important as the actual tournament itself for many teams – there’s no better way to boost team morale. ESF is staged exclusively at the UK’s very best holiday resorts at Butlins and Haven.
