“In terms of developing and nurturing some of New Zealand’s brightest football talent, Olé Academy is without doubt one of the market leaders. Having worked with numerous players at both national and international level who have come through the Academy, I firmly believe that the holistic approach to development at Olé, is helping produce some truly special players in the New Zealand context. Ryan Thomas, Nando Pijanker, Elijah Just and Callum McCowatt are but a few of the current All Whites who embody the philosophy and essence of Olé Academy”

– Danny Hay, All Whites Head Coach
