ETP (Emerging Talent Program)

The FAI Emerging Talent Programme helps identify and develop talented young players around the country with a view to helping them progress onto the international stage in due course.

As the governing body of a country with no professional underage competition/coaching/development structure there is an obligation to assist in the structured development of young players countrywide for all facets of the game

There is now a structured programme of development, which mirrors best practice in European and World standards, at League, Regional and National level to assist clubs and leagues
