ICEF’s Weekly Intensive Experience technical programs are implemented by official French Federation of Football staff along with the best-in-class European methodology, integrating the six fundamentals of professional football:

    • Mastery of technical skills
    • Pursuit of top performance
    • Commitment to physical preparation
    • Mental conditioning and leadership

French Course

Beyond football, the International Center of European Football introduces athletes to the French language by implementing a conversational DELF B level course during their experience at the center. Depending on the length of their stay, they obtain the level to speak conversationally and come back to their home country with a solid French international experience.


Life at the center is rythmed by student-athletes football training and their academics but of course, they take full advantage of their international experience by participating in multiple activites such as:

  • Sailing on Lake Geneva
  • Hiking in the Alps
  • Geneva city tour
  • Golfing at the Evian Championship Course
