meet our founders

We are Mark and Siobhan Molloy — the founders and owners of Soccer Star Academy. We started Soccer Stars Academy after we realised that there were very limited quality kids activities in our local community that our son, Louie, could attend.

We wanted to help develop Louie’s social skills and confidence before starting nursery school, so with our backgrounds being in football, teaching and marketing, we decided to create our own football classes for kids. It was apparent that there were many parents like us who were looking for a quality kids activity provider to help their children develop social skills, improve their confidence, and get more active.

As our football coaching classes progressed, word got around and every week our numbers increased. Six years on, and after launching our first football franchise in the UK in 2021, we are now the fastest-growing football activity provider for toddlers and kids aged 18 months–12 years!

Soccer Stars Academy is the UK’s fastest growing football class provider for kids aged 18 months - 12 years.

Kids football classes are in HUGE demand. We have seen month-on-month growth over the past 5 years, and we currently deliver our classes to thousands of kids in over 100 locations every week! Owning a Soccer Stars Academy franchise business will allow you to operate in multiple venues within your exclusive territory. This is, therefore, a fantastic opportunity for you to earn a great salary with minimum investment, all whilst having an extremely flexible work/life balance.

What our Kids Football Academy Franchise is all About

We are much more than just a football coaching business — our successful business model is built on encouraging children to learn through play. We want our kids football training programmes to play a significant role in the development of children, and that is exactly what our franchises, coaches, and weekly sessions aim to achieve. 

Take your football coaching business idea further with us

Owning a Soccer Stars Academy franchise means that you are not alone — it comes with a network of support from our existing franchisees. We work very closely with all our franchisees and support them in every aspect of their business.

In a recent survey, our franchisees gave us an incredible 97% overall satisfaction score in areas including training, support, communication, and leadership.

Do you have what it takes?

Our mission is to ensure that all of our franchisees run highly successful businesses that are profitable. Therefore, we are happy to go the extra mile ourselves to make sure this happens. No franchisee will be left unsupported and not knowing where to go or what to do.

You do not need to have experience in children’s football coaching or have a coaching license to get involved in the franchising of our brand. We are looking for passionate, driven, hungry, and motivated individuals who are determined to succeed and earn a great income.

The main characteristics we believe are vital to have in order to be a successful franchisee are:

Enthusiasm – You need to have a real enthusiasm for what you do. Be passionate. If you do not have the drive, then you won’t be motivated enough to invest the time and effort needed to make it successful.

Perseverance – Running your own business isn’t always easy. Successful franchisees have the strength to keep going when faced with challenges and show determination.

Strong Communication Skills – Franchisees have to be able to train and manage coaches, liaise with parents, build working relationships with other franchisees, and work with members of the Head Office team. The ability to communicate well is critical to the success of your business.

Prior to taking over Manchester Central I was the Head coach for SSA, so it was an easy decision to take on a franchise! Having this insight into how and sessions should be run, the ethos of SSA was extremely helpful. Anything I am unsure of Mark, Shiv, Lauren and Jordan are on hand to support and guide.

You're in good company.
