Our head coach, Gui, left Brazil, just 17 years old with a sense of adventure, passion and a love of playing & coaching football.
Quickly picking up a job with Barcelona FC, he was fortunate enough to mentor children in America, Japan and Spain
Gui decided to migrate to Sydney in 2009 to coach soccer, as Australia was a ‘developing nation’ in terms of the sport. Gui believed that Australia would benefit from the creativity and flair of Brazilian football. He started off by training a small group of four children. Soccer de Brazil was born and word of its high level development programs spread and the academy grew.
Fast forward to now, and we are a proudly Australian owned company, with over 600 children in our programs and training centres in NSW, QLD and WA.
Apart from football, we also have a vested interest in continually helping out charities for kids such as Camp Quality, Starlight Foundation, Youth Beyond Blue as well as a number of local schools. We also provided assistance to Australian farmers through the drought crisis.
We want to positively change lives. And this is why we continue the pursuit of our vision: to improve Australia as a football nation.
