  • Background

    The success of the 1. FC Köln youth academy is not measured by how many titles the team wins, but by how many of the players make it to the professional level. FC is committed to providing the best training and facilities to ensure the development of its players at every age level. Players are encouraged to have fun and enjoy the process of becoming a more rounded and complete athlete. In addition to the development of a player’s football talent is an emphasis on developing strong character and a team mentality. 

    In order to develop the individual not only as a football player but also as a student, FC currently has partnerships with three different schools. The cooperation with these schools makes it possible for our youth players between ages 12 and 18 to attend the training sessions while completing their academic requirements. 

    The football school is named after former player Heinz Flohe, who was part of the 1. FC Köln teams that won the DFB Pokal on three occasions as well as the Bundesliga title in 1978. He was also a member of the 1974 West Germany squad, which went on to become World Cup champions.
