Could I possibly go to uni and still play semi pro football?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I'm in the same situation as yourself. If you want to play football at the highest level possible and you also want to go to university you're just going to have to make it work somehow. In my case, I am looking to shape my life around my football career and that includes university. I'm currently looking for semi-professional teams that are relatively close enough to the cities I might end up studying in which include the likes of Manchester, Liverpool, and Nottingham. Traveling to training and games can be very time consuming but if you schedule your time efficiently enough you will be able to have a great balance between university and your football and even your social life. I would preferably like to play for a team that is no more than two hours away from my university's campus. via public transport. Now you might not be involved in uni life as much as the other students but that's what comes with trying to become a professional footballer. You're going to put a lot of thought into this and yourself what your priorities are. If you feel like you could cope with the workload from university and still play football to the highest of your standards then I say go for it but you need to sure. You don't want to waste your time and your money on university if you don't think you can do it. I'm not trying to scare you. It is what it is. I'm sure there's plenty of students who are going to uni and still playing semi-pro football. If they can do it I see no reason why you can't do it. If you need any more advice about this particular or about any other football situation feel free to hit me up and I'll try my best to respond to you as soon as possible.
Good luck SAMFIELD
