Gateshead F.C. Academy

Doing our region proud



We’ve been a proud part of Gateshead since 1930, helping promising players from our area and beyond forge a career in football. We’re now going one step further, developing an academy that will deliver for the club, for the fantastic footballing talent on our doorstep and for the communities of the North East.

We’ve been a proud part of Gateshead since 1930

To do this, we’ve partnered with experts in education and in our opinion there’s no one better than Gateshead College.

Our vision

Together we’re building an academy the whole region can celebrate. One designed from the ground up to produce well-rounded, highly skilled and educated young people capable of going on to do amazing things – whether that’s in our first team, behind the scenes at the club or away from the game entirely.
