FAO: All new students joining from September 2019.

Although one academic year has only just come to a close, the excitement of a new career in education and football at the NPL Football Academy (NPLFA) begins for the new intake of Academy students.

Below are important time schedules for you to be aware of for you to purchase your kit bundle for the start of the NPLFA programme in September 2019. There is strict lead up times (to ensure they arrive on time) provided by our kit partners AFB Kits and Joma for you to follow.

PLEASE NOTE – Those parents/guardians/students who are wary of the potential outcome of their grades and subsequent acceptance on to the programme, you can still purchase the kit and receive a FULL GUARANTEED REFUND from AFB Kits if the education providers – once you have your results – deem you as not suitable to enrol on the programme for the forthcoming year. This can be refunded ONLY if we are informed of your grades and a decision made by the education providers by 5pm on Friday 23rd August, though hopefully that refund will not have to take place.

If you have any questions or queries, regarding the above or in general relating to the kit procedure, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@nplfa.co.uk
