FirstPoint USA

In partnership with the ESFA

FirstPoint USA, the world’s leading US sports scholarship & university admissions agency, will be working with the ESFA to promote the incredible opportunities available for ESFA Schools’ Cup players in America.

The partnership, which will officially launch as of September 2020, will last for three years, in the first instance and during this time both the ESFA and FirstPoint USA hope to be able to share the successes of their current scholarship students and promote the exciting possibilities that will open up to ESFA players through this new and engaging relationship.

Since 2001, FirstPoint has provided life-changing athlete-scholar opportunities in the USA for upwards of 60,000 young people, securing more than $200m in scholarship funding during that time. The official scholarship agency of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes (NAIA) and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), FirstPoint works in partnership with 2,500+ of the best colleges and universities in the States.
