The most appropriate translation would be "Vivo en una casa en Liverpool y juego en la “Academia” (escuela deportiva) de Liverpool.”*

The first translation ("Vivo en una casa in Liverpool, y para jugar en un equipo Academia de Liverpool") is grammatically incorrect for many reasons. There is a spelling mistake (“in” for “en”) and the sentence “para jugar en un equipo Academia de Liverpool” does not make sense. The main reason for this is the fact that in the English sentence there is no idea of finality, as in the Spanish one. Besides, in the phrase “equipo Academia de Liverpool” a preposition should be added for the sentence to make sense.

The second translation ("Vivo en una casa en Liverpool y también juego en la academía de Liverpool") is more correct, but it includes an element which did not feature in the English sentence: "también." There is also a spelling mistake (“academía” instead of “academia.")

*The “Liverpool Academy” (escuela deportiva) is a team where children and teenagers learn to play football.

Correction: The "Liverpool Academy" is not a sports school, but the "second" team of the Liverpool Football Club.
