Education and football go back a long way. The first winners of the FA Cup 150 years ago were a group of wealthy former public-school boys called the Wanderers, a team who dominated the competition for the first seven years of its existence.
Fast forward 150 years and the Wanderers are no longer around, but the tradition is vibrantly thriving at another club with a 100 year plus history, Tranmere Rovers.
The club has supported and provided education across the Wirral for several decades, but recent times have seen the development of a global dimension to its programmes.
Home to the north west’s International Soccer Academy (ISA), Tranmere Rovers now offer authentic online and face to face English language training as well as unique learning, sporting and cultural experiences backed by a team of highly experienced teachers, coaches and support staff.
The club has now partnered with Happie Feet, an established Hong Kong educational travel business with an ethos of quality and authenticity. This strategic partnership, which includes programmes in Hong Kong as well as in the UK, opens the door for Hong Kong students and their families to discover life and culture of a special part of England.
