About The Club
About the Academy

Hull City Academy develops and works with talented young footballers from the age of 8 to 23. We have made significant progress at the Academy since the Club successfully achieved its quest to gain Category Two status in the summer of 2015, with the primary focus on developing and nurturing players with outstanding potential into future first team regulars. In line with the Football Association’s Charter of Quality, the Academy prepares players of the future for the Club and enables our scholars to progress both on and off the field throughout their tenure with us.

With a number of scholars making their First Team debuts in the past three seasons, the sale of an Academy product to the Premier League and many more former Academy players currently plying their trade across Europe, this is a truly exciting time to be part of Hull City.

We are now expanding our Academy Recruitment Department to provide an opportunity to more young players from the region to follow in the footsteps of previous graduates such as Jarrod Bowen, Max Clark and Keane Lewis-Potter.
