Bristol Rovers Academy is looking to recruit host families to support our young players between the ages of 16 and 18.

We currently have around 150 young players within the Academy, some of whom stay with host families, allowing them to take the opportunity of full-time employment at the Football Club as either an apprentice or professional player.

We are looking for families who can provide a suitably safe 'home-from-home' environment on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis, covering seven nights per week.

It is advantageous if your home is close to the club’s primary venue of The Memorial Stadium, Filton Avenue, Bristol BS7 0BF.

All family members over the age of 18 will be required to complete a DBS Enhanced Criminal Record Check with a children’s barred list check.

Application process

If you feel you have a welcoming, safe, home environment to offer and would like to offer the opportunity to a progressing player, please apply in writing to:

Hosts will be vetted and contacted regularly throughout the season.

Closing date for applications: Ongoing
