Tritility is the Dundee Academy’s First Energy Partner

We’re proud to become the first official energy partner of the Dundee Academy, a Community Interest Company (CIC) launched and run by Dundee FC members.  

By partnering with the Dundee Academy, we’re supporting a world-class educational sports initiative aiming to close the equity gap in football for young players from disadvantaged backgrounds in Dundee and surrounding areas.

Shared Values, Shared Success

Our partnership with the Academy is built on our shared commitment to equal opportunities and investing in people regardless of their background. And thanks to our partnership scheme, we're now able to offer our services to all commercial partners and local businesses associated with the Dundee Academy.

Academy Director Jamie McBrearty shared his thoughts:

"We are thrilled to partner with Tritility as part of our affiliate programme. This partnership can ensure that any resources raised can go towards giving children and young people better opportunities, better experiences and better pathways onto positive career destinations."

About the Dundee Academy CIC

Launched in July 2023 as a social enterprise, Dundee Academy has partnered with the Universal Centre of Sport (UCS) to create a pathway to university-level sports education and potential careers within the industry.  

Learners completing a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Undergraduate Degree within the Dundee Academy UCS programme can choose from a range of placement opportunities from coaching, scouting, match analysis and life as an athlete – all provided by Dundee FC.

Many Academy graduates are breaking through to Dundee FC's first-team squad.

Gary Manini, Business Development Manager at Tritility added,  

“I look forward to our partnership with the Dundee Academy and working with more businesses in the area. As a football fan myself, I can’t wait to see more Academy graduates progress to the first team.”
