Life After Football

There are lots of exciting opportunities you can pursue for a fulfilling post-football future. Our Education department provides careers advice for all past and present professional football players, and we'll help you develop your own personal development path to enhance your career prospects.

You're also entitled to PFA financial support towards most accredited academic or vocational courses. We can help you access that support and recommend suitable courses based on your career goals.

When should I start thinking about qualifications?

It’s never too early to start thinking about studying. The earlier you start, the better prepared you’ll be for a new career once you leave the game. Contact our team to find out how we can help you get started.

Will pursuing an education affect my performance on the pitch?

There is increasing research that suggests exploring interests outside football can actually boost your performance. If you’re thinking about broadening your horizons, check out our range of distance-learning courses.
