About BFA

Founded in 2015, BFA is a premier football and futsal academy for kids and youth with facilities in Sydney and Gold Coast, Australia. 


Our programs are designed in an age-appropriate model. We work on all aspects of a football player’s abilities, while incorporating elements that have set Brazilian players apart from their peers, such as technique, creativity, superior skills, finesse and improvisation. In addition to teaching football specific skills, we also work to improve our players’ game understanding, cognitive skills, and physical literacy, including balance, coordination, running technique and mechanics.


In our academy we value respect, communication, compassion and discipline. This give the player the opportunity to experience growth in the areas of teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play, and skill development. We are committed to help the player grow and develop on a personal level alongside improving its game and reaching its full potential.


What sets us apart is our top training BFA methodology, with specialised Brazilian football and futsal coaches, and our global and strategic network of clubs and players in South America and Europe.


Our mission is to provide an outstanding football player development program in Australia, similar to the programs in Brazil, and to contribute to the expansion of football as a major sport in Australia.
