The British School of Bahrain (BSB) Announces Groundbreaking Partnership with Juventus FC

Manama, November 15 — The British School of Bahrain (BSB) is delighted to announce a pioneering partnership with the illustrious Juventus Football Club, marking a historic moment in Bahrain's educational and sporting landscape. This collaboration establishes BSB as the first school in Bahrain to host a football academy on its campus, setting a new standard for sports education in the Kingdom. 


BSB's commitment to providing an exceptional and holistic educational experience takes a giant leap forward with the establishment of the Juventus Football Academy within its premises. The school’s campus which features a state-of-the-art 4-goal pitch, makes BSB the first school in Bahrain with such a facility. This groundbreaking initiative underscores BSB's dedication to fostering both academic and athletic excellence. 

The Juventus curriculum, renowned for its world-class training methodologies, will be delivered directly from Italy to students at BSB. This curriculum is consistent with the training programs implemented across Juventus academies worldwide, ensuring that students receive the highest quality football education available. 

One of the unique aspects of this partnership is the opportunity for students to be monitored and scouted for potential professional recruitment by Juventus in Turin, Italy. The scouting process is a testament to the calibre of talent that BSB aims to nurture through this groundbreaking initiative. In addition to the world-class training, BSB students enrolled in the Juventus Football Academy will have access to regular competitions and tournaments across the GCC, every two weeks. This exposure to competitive play enhances the overall development of young athletes, preparing them for success both on and off the field. 

Mr. John Maguire, Executive Headmaster at BSB stated, "The partnership between the British School of Bahrain and Juventus Football Club is a game-changer for sports education in Bahrain. We are proud to be the first school in Bahrain to host a Juventus Football Academy and provide our students with unparalleled opportunities for both academic and athletic growth."  

The coaching staff at the Juventus Football Academy in BSB comprises full-time, highly qualified professionals who are dedicated to nurturing the talents of each student. Their expertise and commitment to excellence will play a crucial role in shaping the future of aspiring footballers at BSB.
