The Football Business Academy is excited to partner with BazookaGoal. The UK-based company works closely with some of the major European clubs providing the equipment that is being used to develop new generations of players. Indeed, 80% of Premier League clubs and 50% of Bundesliga clubs use BazookaGoal. Furthermore, their robust products are marketed to both clubs and consumers in more than 40 countries worldwide. Out of their offices in Greece, Germany and the UK, BazookaGoal is also developing 3v3 youth tournaments together with national football associations across Europe.
This partnership will give FBA Candidates the opportunity to develop sales and marketing skills during their internships in a variety of areas, including new market development, key account management, product development, and ecommerce.

BazookaGoal is the skill training goal supplier used for talent development in some of the world’s most renowned club academies including Chelsea, Arsenal, Ajax, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Real Madrid. It was born out of the belief that football equipment should be exciting as well as functional, and that this will have a positive effect on the development of young players and lead to more training, better skills, and most important of all: more goals.
