Can you help?

Leeds United is seeking host families who can provide accommodation for Academy players aged 16 to 19 years.

As a host family, you will provide our young players with a safe and comfortable ‘home from home’, for them to live and study in around their full-time training schedule.

Located ideally within a five mile radius of Wetherby, West Yorkshire, lodgings should offer good quality accommodation, preferably in a family environment. 

Other requirements are the provision of a daily evening meal and occasional lunches, access to laundry facilities and wireless internet.

Full and part-time residential accommodation will be required over 10 months of the year to reflect the football season.

We are looking for host families who can accommodate a minimum of two players at a time. The willingness to accommodate players on a short-term basis throughout the season is also desirable.

If you think you are the kind of family who can work with us to play a key role in the development of our young players, then we would like to hear from you.

To arrange an informal discussion about being a host family, the application process and rates of remuneration, please contact the Academy via email at

Prospective host families and their property will be required to undergo a comprehensive screening process in line with our Safer Recruitment policy and will require all permanent residents aged 18 and over to complete a DBS enhanced with barred list check.
