DIFA recognises that all players are different and that football potential comes in a variety of different shapes and sizes. The Premier League is now made up of a huge variety of different player types: small technicians, more physically robust enforcers, quick and agile athletes, and many more.

The DIFA Talent Identification Programme embraces these differences, providing equal opportunities to all types of player to make sure that we continue to operate at the cutting edge of the modern game.

Acknowledging these differences and to ensure that every player who comes into take part in one of our programmes is given the best possible chance to develop and succeed, our expert staff assess players in a multi-disciplinary manner.

Assessment sessions are used to consider a player’s speed of movement, technical ability and match realistic decision-making, to name just a few.
