Inspiratus through its market study identified a gap and an opportunity in football academies category. Inspiratus approached and partnered with the Spanish league to create the LaLiga Project. Thus, conceptualized and launched the first Laliga Academy in the world, currently a standard of excellence to all LaLiga Academies globally. The inception started in the UAE with LaLiga Academies in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, followed by Academies in Egypt and North America. Later Laliga extended the module to India, China and Europe.
The success of the program has led to a movement in youth football in the UAE with other academies following suit to improve their standards of training and provide youth across the UAE with optimum standards in football training.
LaLiga Academy has delivered top footballers to national clubs as well as international clubs.
