Drone Soccer Academy

Drone Soccer is a trending Drone/E-Sport popularised in South Korea with official leagues & competitions in USA, Japan, China and many other countries. Drone soccer is a thrilling indoor team sport played with radio controlled quadcopters in protective exoskeletons designed for collisions.


Five player teams face off in a netted arena where they ram and block the opposing team to prevent them from scoring. But before pilots can compete they must first learn to build, program, fly, and repair high-performance drones, learning engineering skills towards exciting careers in aviation.
