NEWS: Coventry City Academy seeking accommodation providers for young players

16 April 2020

Coventry City Football Club is seeking to recruit permanent and temporary accommodation providers for young professional football apprentices and potential trialists within the local area.

Lodgings should provide good quality accommodation within the Coventry area and be within a reasonable distance to the training ground.

Homes must provide a safe and preferably, family setting for the apprentices to live during their weekly training schedule.

The role will require residential accommodation from Sunday evening until Saturday morning each week during the football season (usually last week in June until first week in May) and will require the accommodation provider to provide high quality, nutritional breakfasts and an evening meal.

Coventry City Football Club and the League Football Education (LFE) are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all accommodation providers to share this commitment.

Remuneration: £100 per player, per week. Less than a week will be dependant on the number of days you have hosted the player.

Requirements of Accomdation Providers

Location: Be within a 15 minute drive of Academy Training Ground, The Alan Higgs Centre, Allard Way, Coventry, CV3 1HW

Expectations of Accomdation providers:

  • Provide morning breakfast and hot meals in the evening
  • Provide running hot and cold water
  • Provide clean and safe washing facilities (Bathroom, working shower/bath)
  • Provide adequate bed and sleeping facilities (Preferably double bed for each player but not mandatory)
