i9 Football Tech (Technology, Education, Community, Human Development) is an international football academy in Brazil focused in youth development.
Together with the best PhDs in sport science, i9 has deeply studied what made Brazilian players the best in the world and developed the most innovative football curriculum for youth development.
Football is part of Brazil’s culture and the Street Methodology has been responsible for our players’ success. In the same way, Basketball pick-up games, on the streets and garages of many houses along the USA, have been responsible for revealing the best Basketball players in the world.
Our curriculum reproduces the Football Street Methodology to provide a wholistic educational experience and stimulate game intelligence to our players. Taught by professional licensed coaches and structured as a mix of in-class theory and on-field practices, our programs are developed to provide a game-like (playful, unpredictable, and challenging) environment.
