Olympiacos FC Academy

Olympiacos FC, the most successful and storied football club in Greece, has selected Toronto, Ontario to be the home of its first Canadian soccer school and academy for player development. Olympiacos FC has established academies around the world, including in Greece, Cyprus, the United States, England, Australia, Sweden and, now, Canada.

As an official Olympiacos FC academy, players who attend the Olympiacos Toronto soccer school will be training to standards set by Olympiacos FC, will adhere to the guidelines established by Olympiacos FC for its academies, and will wear the famous red and white striped uniforms. We don’t just wear a patch, use the name or claim some sort of arrangement or connection to a European club.

Young players will have a direct pathway to the Olympiacos FC resident academy in Greece, will have the opportunity to visit and train at the state-of-the-art Olympiacos FC training grounds at Renti, and will also have the possibility to be selected for the resident academy in Greece. Olympiacos Toronto coaches and leadership will be trained in the Olympiacos FC methodology. The philosophy governing the operation of the associated soccer schools is the following:

  • to provide professional sports and social education of young athletes in accordance with the values and principles of Olympiacos FC
  • to train the coaches, trainers and executives of all the associated soccer schools in accordance with the Academy’s operational standards
  • to deliver top-level football training and to teach our young athletes to play the "Olympiacos Way"

The purpose of this network is not solely competitive and commercial but also social, giving children the opportunity, at a young age, to learn proper football and sports in general.
