Valeo Futbol Partnership

Valeo Futbol Club Inc. – an elite global futbol training organization focused on developing highly competitive athletes, outstanding citizens, and strong leaders – announced a new partnership with Athlone Town Association Football Club in March 2023

Under the terms of the partnership, Valeo Futbol Club will lend its footballing expertise to all of Athlone Town AFC’s teams and oversee their technical direction. It will additionally lead efforts to transform Athlone’s Youth Academy into a global football development center of excellence for ambitious players and coaches.  

The goal of this partnership is to create a world-class training and development environment for elite players and coaches from all over Ireland, and attract the best and brightest young players from across the globe.

“Athlone Town Association Football Club has a storied history as the oldest team in the League of Ireland,” said Valeo Futbol Club’s Founder and President, Emelio Williams. “With this exciting new partnership, we will work hand-in-hand to improve all of the club’s teams, strengthen the club’s training program and develop the next generation of players”.

“This partnership will help Athlone get to the next level in and improve our competitiveness in Ireland’s First Division,” said Athlone Town Club President, John Hayden. “But perhaps more importantly, it will help our players – and generations of players to come – access new opportunities to play football at the highest levels in Ireland and Europe.”
