Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Over the 2022/23 academic year, BISP Cruzeiro Academy has achieved new heights of excellence.  This overview of a great season highlights and reviews some of our objectives, activities and what we’ve accomplished. The extra effort put forth by our student-athletes to improve academically must be recognised as each student-athlete in the BISP Cruzeiro Academy is first and foremost a student.

Our main objective this year was to expose our students to as many football competitions as we could and with a lot of planning and hard work we have been able to do just that. Across eight age groups, we had over 300 students playing football. This year we offered 1,692 sessions, hosted three football festivals, three football camps and attended 22 tournaments. Trips to Bangkok, Samui, Malaysia, Brazil and Portugal helped create valuable team spirit and many fond memories. It has been a busy year during which our student-athletes displayed a lot of effort and great resilience.

“Looking back, although the students may not realise it right now, this year they have all grown up so much. Each of them worked hard and has fought their own private battles to become not just better football players, but better young people. They have also created memories for themselves, for each other and their families, and I sincerely hope these experiences leave a lifelong impression on each of them.” 

Jonathas Candido BISP Director of Football 

Congratulations to the student-athletes who made the 2022-2023 an outstanding football season.
