Since ACA Football Partners became an owner of KMSK Deinze, we put more value on academy development, and nowadays youth training and the follow-up of a youth player’s trajectory is becoming increasingly important. Since criteria for elite licenses and labels are becoming more strict, KMSK Deinze seeks to professionalize its youth academy and to do so it has decided to take the infrastructure and years of experience of the training center Futurosport in Mouscron.
With this collaboration, ACA Football Partners, KMSK Deinze, and Futurosport plan to welcome talented youngsters, both boys and girls, from national and international, and support their future. The club will emphasise a solid youth training program with a qualified coaching staff, that can function in the best possible conditions. In this the professional sports complex Futurosport, in cooperation with reputable trainers, will play an essential role.
KMSK Deinze will thereby work together with the city of Mouscron to build up the structure including the boarding school to provide better opportunities for our youth players. In addition to the current youth academy in Deinze, a second professional youth academy will therefore be offered in the region under the entity of KMSK Deinze. ACAFP and KMSK Deinze are very pleased with this new and ambitious collaboration and are convinced that this is a big step towards the professionalisation of both the youth academy and the club of KMSK Deinze.
