About Genova International School of Soccer (GISS)
The RESIDENTIAL ACADEMY was established by Genova International School of Soccer in August 2009 in Zanè (Vicenza), Northern Italy. The program is an exclusive operation that has been designed to cater to promising young footballers wanting a career pathway. Players are chosen from GISS academies worldwide and trials via the I.D camps. The GISS Academy is now based in Madrid, Spain in the vibrant and welcoming residential suburb of Leganes which is located about 11 km southwest of the Madrid city centre.

For the duration of the program the players are given a chance of a lifetime: to be able to live their dreams, living the life of a professional European footballer, living and breathing football every day at the highest level possible. GISS in Italy has seen many players come through our program who have gone on to become professional players.

The academy has helped players to develop their skills and to help them acclimatize to the conditions and level of European football. GISS has not only placed players to pro clubs in Italy but also to other football nations such as United Kingdom, Hungary, Spain, Greece, Romania, Switzerland, Singapore and Turkey.
