Stay in safe, modern, and comfortable accommodation at our residential football camp. Only a 20-minute drive from the City Football Academy, our residence is where you’ll eat, rest and relax following a long day of football fun.
The Salford Residence, known as Peel Park Quarter, is high-quality accommodation owned by the University of Salford. Located a short distance from the City Football Academy, we arrange for players on our summer programmes to be collected from and dropped off here daily by a private coach. Alternatively, players on our spring programmes can expect to stay at a local hotel. Details about this hotel will be provided once you’ve booked onto a programme.
During your stay at the Salford Residence, you’ll have a private bedroom with an en suite and double bed all to yourself - perfect for unwinding after an eventful day at the Academy. It also includes a study desk should you want to swot up on what you’ve learnt during the day, wi-fi access so you can easily connect with home, and plenty of wardrobe space to store your football boots!
Our communal areas at the Salford Residence are designed to help you enjoy some downtime. Whether you want to watch your favourite show on Sky TV, play games consoles, use the gym, or simply catch up with your programme mates, there are various shared spaces for you to do so in the evening. That said, our dedicated Activity Manager will typically arrange something fun like a movie night or BBQ. The residence even has a communal laundry room too. Don’t worry though, players aren’t expected to wash their football kits themselves - we’ll sort that all out for you!
Our clean and comfortable dining room is where you’ll eat breakfast and dinner and chat with all your new friends. For breakfast, you will be able to choose between a continental or hot option. In the evening, healthy, balanced dinners with plenty of vegetables will be served, followed by a delicious dessert. This is likely to be anything from a traditional pudding to yoghurt or fruit.
