Helping the global football industry to address emerging challenges.
Football is played, watched and loved the world over. Consequently, the football landscape is crowded and competitive and stakeholders need to be flexible, agile and constantly evolving if they want to thrive and deliver sustained impact.
We have worked with a wide variety of stakeholders; from transforming International and National Federations to private investors looking to identify emerging opportunities to designing ambitious national plans. Our work in the football industry is grounded in years of experience, combining insight-driven, analytical capabilities with experience in supporting leading organisations from around the world to help clients with a solution tailored for their specific needs.
Our work typically focuses on the following areas:
High performance player pathways
We help federations define the framework for a national pathway, supporting processes and enablers to identify, develop and sustain a healthy pipeline of talent necessary to excel internationally
