Our Denmark Academy has already produced several talented players who have gone to make names for themselves in Europe and all over the world, including current Brentford winger Mikkel Damsgaard and Benfica midfielder Andreas Schjelderup.

And it doesn't stop there! So far, our Denmark academy has produced 58 youth national male players, and we are continually working hard to nurture more talented players who will make an impact on the world of football.

Established in 2016 after Right to Dream's acquisition of FC Nordsjælland, the Right to Dream Academy in Denmark located in Farum, just outside Copenhagen.

The Academy’s model highlights the importance of character development and academic excellence alongside footballing excellence, providing a holistic approach that prepares young talents for success both on and off the pitch.

In 2017, we launched the Denmark girls' academy, which has quickly become a starting point for many talented female footballers. We’re proud to have produced 12 youth national female players since the academy’s inception, and in 2023, our girls’ academy has been ranked as the best in Denmark for the second year in a row.

Our Denmark Academy has gained a reputation for being one of the best youth academies in Scandinavia, and we are proud to say that we are ranked among the top 8 football academies in the world. In 2020, the Danish FA’s annual independent report awarded FCN’s academy the rating: “international class”. It became the first Danish academy ever to receive this highest possible rating.

"The FCN Academy is where we get to develop the next generations of the best girls and boys in Denmark and Scandinavia. I am proud to say the team have created one of the most holistic development environments you can find anywhere."

Phil Radley,

Chief Operations Officer, FC Norsdsjælland
