History & Vision

The Football Academy (TFA) was founded in October 2020. Prior to the academy being founded, Marcus Lees pitched the idea of having a soccer academy to the University of New Brunswick. They were inspired and accepted Marcus into the start-up accelerator program known as Summer Institute. Using their resources and funding, The Football Academy has implemented a plan for a variety of programs.


Marcus is respectful and kind and encourages you to never give up on something hard. He has helped my son improve ball control and his mental game.

It is always a highlight finishing up the school week knowing he trained with him. Thanks Marcus.
