Street League combines the power of daily sport and fitness activities with classes that offer CV writing, interview skills and career advice. Its progression services then support individuals in finding sustainable employment, education or training.


Over the last 15 years, Street League has offered individuals football as a holistic solution to their social challenges. Since its origination, Street League has expanded to deliver Academies throughout the UK in 14 different cities including London, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, Sheffield, Middlesbrough as well as Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and other cities in Scotland.
