RED Academy of Soccer is absolutely delighted to announce a partnership and affiliation with @league1ontario Champions Guelph United FC.

RED Academy and Guelph will support and promote each other as they build on an already strong relationship. As part of the agreement, RED Academy players will have direct opportunities to be assessed and evaluated within Guelph’s three team structure (U19, League1 Reserve, and League1 Premier).

This completes a player pathway at RED Academy to provide a direct route to League1 opportunities. Since 2020, RED Academy have graduated seven players into the GUFC structure including two members of their 2020 L1 championship team. Since the agreement, Guelph United have added another RED Academy player to their supplemental U19 roster. 

RED Academy will promote and support Guelph United’s teams as they compete in the Canadian Championship and League1 season. And finally, both organizations will support coach development opportunities to continue learning and development.

Statement from RED Academy of Soccer Technical Director, Peter Mackie:

“Head Coach and General Manager Keith Mason and I have a special relationship that expands over 30 years. We share a mutual passion for football and promoting the growth of the sport in this country. We are excited to partner with GUFC, support their vision, and promote League 1 semi-pro football in the local community. This completes a critical player pathway for RED Academy, providing player development opportunities for the elite, competitive player from u17 to the senior player. We have some exciting collaborative ventures that will excite and embrace the local soccer community.” We are excited for football in this country and hope that our shared values and vision continues to push  the game forward in this community.”

We are thrilled to announce this partnership and we are excited for a successful summer of soccer.
