Mpumalanga Black Aces has a fully fledged Academy based in Gauteng which is supported by an international partnership with Manchester City FC, who are Black Aces ‘Official Regional School of Football Partner’. 

As part of the three-year partnership, City will deliver coaching programs to local children, teaching them the same training techniques and philosophies used by City’s first team that, of course, includes African Player of the Year, Yaya Toure.

In addition to local children learning how to play the “City way”, the Black Aces Academy coaches will also benefit from the delivery of a City Coach Education Program, and will have the opportunity to shadow City’s coaches in South Africa.  They will also travel to Manchester, where their academy will play games against the Club’s youth academy sides.
