Major changes in Apollon FC academy

The process of the complete restructuring of Apollon’s football academy is in full swing. As it is known, the management of the club’s academies will be handled by the football company after many years as both the President Nikos Kirzis and the new Head of the academies Mr. Moshe Rajczyk will try to reorganize the academy’s organizational chart in order to restore the glamour and prestige of our academy.

A challenging but essential task, so that the blue-white academy will once again become an attractive destination for all the young footballers of the city and the broader Limassol district.

At the same time, to align the organization chart of the academy according to all the modern requirements of football, so that in the near future, homegrown footballers can be promoted to the first team of Apollon Limassol.

For this purpose, our academy has reached an agreement with the well-known and highly experienced Nir Levin from Israel, who will lead this effort.

‏He is the special advisor of the Israeli football, who is recruited by the board member Moshe Rajczyk.

Mr. Nir Levine will provide his expertise and valuable advice to the staff and executives that make up our academy, regarding the on and off field operating style that a modern academy should follow.
