Football's Next Star

Celtic Football Club has teamed up with Young People's Programming to offer one lucky Irish soccer player a place at Celtic's prestigious Youth Academy in a new reality series, Football's Next Star.

Presented by Nicky Byrne, the series will see ten teenage boys selected from hundreds at trials in Dublin and Limerick. Just ten make it to Glasgow where, over four weeks, they will eat, sleep and breathe football at a gruelling training camp as they attempt to impress the Celtic coaches and bosses.

These boys get a real taste of what life as a professional footballer would be like as they battle it out but only one can win the coveted prize - a nine month place at the Celtic Youth Academy.
