Anton’s Story – Our First Franchisee
4 years ago, Anton Johnson was flicking through Instagram looking for a football academy to send his toddler to. After trying a few different providers, he thought he would give Pro Elite Football Academy a go.
4 years later, Anton’s relationship with the Academy has grown and blossomed. His son is now competing in the Internal League at Pro Elite and is top of the group, in terms of potential.
Anton himself a semi-professional footballer in his own right, then began to play under the Management of our Academy Director (Coach Ali), who manages a semi-professional football team and Anton has never looked back.
“Since the first day, I have felt that Pro Elite were my extended family. The quality of the coaching, the quality of the brand and the genuine relationships I have built along the way with the staff has meant that Pro Elite have become a huge part of my life. This is the only next step I ever dreamed of”.
Today, we are so excited to finally announce that Anton is our first franchisee, as Director of Pro Elite in Cheshunt.
This is the start of Anton’s journey as he tries to replicate and better what Pro Elite have already done in Enfield + Barnet, aiming to impact the lives of many and produce top footballers and top humans of tomorrow.
Anton currently has his FA Level 1 + FA Level 2 coaching badges and is on the verge of completing his in-house training under the guidance of Coach Ali and Coach H.
When I saw that Pro Elite were franchising, after speaking with family and friends, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up on. Now I just can’t wait to get started and help to build the Pro Elite legacy in Cheshunt! My job now is to deliver top-tier coaching, whilst ensuring the kids are having fun first and foremost!Anton Johnson – Pro Elite Franchisee

Choosing our first Franchisee was no easy task. Protecting the brand has been our priority and with Anton, we have no doubts that Pro Elite will soon become parents first choice for football in Cheshunt.
