“Off the field if you’re missing your family, missing your home, it can affect you on the field.”

Through the homestay program, The Academy makes sure players from all over the country feel at home.

Every day at The Academy, talented young players must fight to keep their dreams alive. Season 2 with the New York Red Bulls is here.

The series provides in-depth, behind-the-scenes coverage of the next generation of soccer stars on and off the field as they compete to join the ranks of MLS professional athletes.
