Celtic Football Club
In July 2020 UWS's leading sports and exercise science expertise was further recognised by the announcement of a new partnership with Celtic Football Club.
The University’s longstanding experience in working with elite sports organisations saw UWS become Celtic’s sports science partner for their Youth Academy.
Led by Vish Unnithan, Professor of Paediatric Exercise Physiology at UWS, the partnership gives three PhD students from UWS the opportunity to work alongside Celtic, supporting elite youth football development.
Undertaking important research and providing expert insights, the three PhD students focus on three key areas of strength and conditioning, sports nutrition and recovery, and overall readiness to play in elite youth football.
Celtic are the latest professional football club to work with the sports and exercise science team at UWS, who have extensive experience in working with elite football clubs across the globe, including FC Barcelona and the German Football League.
Read more about the partnership in our press release issued to mark the launch in July 2020.
