To deliver the most authentic club coaching programme to all our participants around the world.
Liverpool Football Club was formed in 1892. One of the most recognisable sports teams in the world, LFC has won 6 European Cups, 19 domestic league titles, 7 FA Cups and more than 20 other major domestic and European honours.
Based at our home stadium of Anfield, Liverpool, the team is managed by the FIFA Best Men's Coach, Jurgen Klopp. His star-studded squad is a mix of global superstars and home-grown talent, all of whom proudly represent the values of the Club.
We have a formidable record of developing young footballers in our Academy, many of whom have gone on to enjoy long professional football careers at the elite level of the game. Such names include Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Crusaders United was formed in 1995 and soon a major part of the New England soccer landscape. April 2013 the Crusaders United Soccer Club and Plymouth based Stingrays Soccer Club combine forces and create more opportunities for every level of player in our area, adding teams from East Bridgewater to round out the new CS UNITED SOCCER CLUB with over 50 teams in every age group of both genders.
As our club grew rapidly, the organization did not go unnoticed and in 2013, the CS United Soccer Club signed contracts with Warrior Brand Soccer, Liverpool Football Club, NSCAA Member Club program, and was selected to membership in the New England Premiership Soccer League.
After 3 years as a Liverpool FC affiliate club, CS United more formally partnered with LFC to become a full Liverpool FC International Academy.
