Our experienced coaches and trainers provide personalized instruction and feedback to help each player reach their full potential. With our state-of-the-art facilities, including a FIFA-certified turf field and cutting-edge fitness equipment, our players have everything they need to excel on the pitch.

But we also understand the importance of academic achievement. That’s why we have partnered with UDG University, a leading institution in higher education, to offer a comprehensive educational experience for our students.

This means they can combine their passion for soccer with a top-quality education, setting them up for success both on and off the pitch.

At Sasa Ilic Soccer Academy, we believe in providing our students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for success in all areas of life. Our students not only excel in soccer and academics but also have the opportunity to experience the beauty and culture of Montenegro. In one day, they can ski in the mountains and swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic Sea.

We invite young soccer players who are passionate about their sport and committed to academic excellence to join us. Our academy offers a unique combination of professional soccer training, academic programs, and the opportunity to experience the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Montenegro. With our program, our students have a real chance of fulfilling their dreams of becoming professional soccer players while achieving academic success and experiencing all that Montenegro has to offer.
