The DV7 Soccer Academy is a network of international youth soccer clubs led by David Villa, former World Cup winner and Spain’s all-time leading goalscorer. The organization’s mission is to teach children around the world how to play soccer using the DV7 method. The methodology allows players to develop soccer skills while fostering personal values on and off the field.

The DV7 curriculum is based on the Spanish soccer methodology, which has proven effective and successful around the world. It is the method that David Villa learned as a child, carried throughout his career, and perfected under the guidance of some of the best coaches of all time: Luis Aragones, Pep Guardiola, Vicente Del Bosque, and Diego Simeone.


We seek soccer clubs and facilities that share our vision of the sport, with leaders and administrators who want to see their academies improve both on and off the field. By becoming a part of the DV7 family, clubs will receive the benefits of:

  • The close association with David Villa, a positive role model who will visit the academy at least once each year and provide inspiration to all of the players.
  • A permanent DV7 Director of Coaching who will implement the Spanish-styled DV7 curriculum, train local coaches in the methodology, and guarantee a high standard of coaching and organization throughout the academy.
  • The DV7 central office that provides administrative and business support in areas such as software and technology, marketing and design, uniforms, sponsorship, and social media.
  • The connection to other DV7 global clubs with the opportunities for international travel, cultural exchanges, and camps.
  • The advantages of DV7 and David Villa’s a global media platform, with millions of followers around the world.
