Mission Statement

We use pathways to Universities in the USA and Canada to create opportunities for young people that will set them up for life.  

Company Ethos

At Gulf United, we are passionate about the success of our players, not only on the football field, but in life. Our players are recruited with the sole intention of sending them to the USA to be educated at some of the best Universities in the world and live like a professional footballer.

As role models, we set a high standard for our players. We expect our players to show high levels of professionalism, be able to establish self-discipline and demonstrate mutual respect.


Ultimately, our players have to be as passionate about our vision as we are and understand the commitment it takes to make it happen. We have a deep love for the game of football and are here to harness the opportunities it creates.  

In our first year in Dubai, we sent 13 players to the United States of America. This year we've going to send 20 more. We make it happen.

Why USA?


USA is widely recognized as the best country on the planet for Universities. In fact, QS World University Ranks 2019 found that more than half of the top 20 Universities in the world are situated in USA (11 out of 20). With excellent education inevitably comes great expense. In addition to having the best Universities in the world, the USA is also the most expensive place to go to Universities.

Gulf United and your child’s talent can subsidize the University Fees. Soccer scholarships are the opportunity of a lifetime.

Opportunities that are out of reach for many families.

So how do Scholarships work?

A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded based upon various criteria, mostly athletic or academic. Scholarship money is not required to be repaid.

In simple terms, we can use our connections to Universities in the US and Canada to reduce the full tuition fee with Athletic and/or Academic scholarships.

The University options that are open to you are based on three main factors: your footballing ability, your academic ability and your budget. When we know the level of each of these three factors we can find the best options for you. 

We are very selective when recruiting GU players. We need to make sure that all of our players get an offer or multiple offers that will best suit their circumstances.

Many families ask how much the average scholarship is for college men’s soccer. However, that’s pretty difficult to pinpoint. There are many variables to consider and each individual pathway is unique.
