The national football training centre, located at Eerikkilä, provides excellent conditions for training all year round. Here you can improve your performance level both as an individual and as a team, whether you are a player or a coach.


SHA – Sami Hyypiä Academy

Eerikkilä football camps are designed and organized by Sami Hyypiä Academy, which is responsible for football activities at Eerikkilä. The professional coaches of the Academy ensure high-quality training in our football school, and the training is based on the internationally recognized Ekkono method.


Learn new skills in a football school

In our football schools, a young player gets to taste the life of a professional footballer for a weekend with comprehensive coaching and top-class facilities. Our goal is to offer an unforgettable football weekend in the company of new friends.


Evolve as and individual and as a team

One of Eerikkilä’s guiding principles is to provide the best possible conditions for players to train all year round. Top-class training facilities, accommodation and restaurant services are located close together so no time is wasted in transits.
