The Sporting Duet Academy is incredibly proud to partner with professional club Racing Club De Lens (www.rclens.fr) since 2017, a partnership born out of a common passion for football as well as matching values on and off the pitch.
As well as providing our players with a route to the professional game, and opportunities to take part in the “Sang et Or” football camps at the world famous facilities La Gaillette in the North of France (www.stagessangetor.com), the new partnership has provided a platform for the Academy to showcase their best young talent in the London Youth Premiere League, with three of our age groups competing as RC Lens London against professional teams such as Crystal Palace, Norwich and Cambridge United in the Elite Level League. RC Lens London creates a professional environment for their coaches and players to develop and progress with their football, with all training sessions and matches taking place at the fantastic newly developed facility Club Des Sports in East Acton (www.clubdessports.co.uk).
Through the partnership we have also launched the RC Lens London Cup, an annual international U13s tournament inviting the best grassroots football clubs from home and abroad to play against professional clubs taking place at one of the best facilities available, the first of its kind in the English capital! See video above!
Players and parents will also be able to experience the world famous hospitality at the Bollaert-Deleis Stadium, and take their seats amongst its wonderful fans. RC Lens London – Dream France, Dream Lens.
