EPA Bangkok and West Ham United Foundation: Creating Pathways to Success
EPA is thrilled to join forces with the West Ham United Foundation, working together to create sports opportunities, elite performance, and training programmes throughout Southeast Asia. Our collaboration aims to pave the way for the region's most gifted players to progress along a development pathway from the EPA/West Ham United Foundation programme, leading towards higher education, potential sports scholarships, sports careers, and potentially reaching the first team for the most talented individuals.
Specialists in Student Pathways
As specialists in crafting student pathways into higher education and professional sports careers, EPA's enduring partnership with the West Ham United Foundation enables us to deliver exceptional training, coach education, and valuable competitions, maximising students' chances to grow and enhance their sporting profiles.
Customised Football-Based Initiatives
The West Ham United Foundation will develop tailored football-based initiatives for EPA, focusing on promoting Coach Education and further expanding our pathways to both higher education and professional sport through the delivery of innovative and progressive football programmes.
Community Projects and Opportunities
With over 30 community projects running across East London and Essex, the West Ham United Foundation leverages the power of the West Ham United brand to connect with nearly 50,000 people annually, fostering unity within the community, addressing local needs, and creating an environment where everyone can flourish. The programmes in Asia aim to offer regular opportunities for participants to train with West Ham United Foundation coaches. Additionally, the partnership allows players based in Southeast Asia to visit London, engage in the Foundation's projects, and participate in regular matches against West Ham United Foundation's teams.
The Ultimate Objective
The ultimate objective of these Asian programmes is to foster student development both on and off the field, utilising the 'West Ham Way' philosophy and promoting the rich history and traditions of West Ham United in Southeast Asia. One of the most exciting aspects of the partnership is the potential for players to be monitored by Foundation coaches, thereby increasing the likelihood of an EPA/West Ham United Foundation participant advancing into professional football.
Unparalleled Programme in the Region
Combining top-tier UEFA-qualified coaches from the West Ham United Foundation with EPA's outstanding coaching and education schemes results in an unparalleled programme in the region.
West Ham United, a club steeped in history and tradition, has produced iconic players such as World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Mark Noble, and Declan Rice. These football stars have all emerged from the Hammers' ranks, making the East London club an inspiring environment for growth and the pursuit of the next generation of football talent.
Kevin Tarrant, Managing Director at EPA, and Tony Greensall expressed their delight in partnering with both the West Ham United Foundation to establish an exceptional programme. This collaboration will guide the region's most talented players along a developmental pathway, from the EPA/West Ham United Foundation programme towards higher education, sports careers, and potentially reaching the first team for the most talented individuals.
Join EPA Bangkok and the West Ham United Foundation in our shared mission to create opportunities for young football enthusiasts in Southeast Asia.
