The FBA and MatchWornShirt Agree Educational Partnership

The Football Business Academy and MatchWornShirt have entered into an agreement that will see the Swiss educational institution and the global sports fundraising company collaborate.

“We’re buzzing to announce a partnership with The Football Business Academy and are positive that our shared values and passion for the game will help to innovate the world of sports together. We look forward to welcoming new FBA talent to MatchWornShirt to help develop the student’s skills in a fast paced sports environment.”

– Tijmen Zonderwijk, Founder, MatchWornShirt

“We are delighted to welcome MatchWornShirt as new Partner of The FBA, a company with a noble purpose that creates double impact from its inception: both as a supporter of the development of social causes globally and as creators of a valuable fan experience. Undoubtedly a versatile and exciting field for our Candidates and an ally of The FBA in our educational mission”.

– Lucía Estevez, Partnerships Coordinator, The FBA

The Football Business Academy is pleased to announce its partnership with MatchWornShirt. The young company with Dutch DNA and international presence acts as a platform for fundraising services for well-known clubs through the main sale of their match worn shirts. 

In doing so, the company seeks to promote sports and health by donating part of the income generated to each club’s foundations or designated charities. At the same time, MatchWornShirt creates unique memories for fans, who can access and purchase match worn and autographed football shirts from their favorite team or player.

This collaboration will focus on providing internships for FBA Candidates during which they will put their knowledge and understanding of the football business into practice and support MatchWornShirt with developing new projects that are part of the company’s business development strategy and growth of their international footprint. 



MatchWornShirt was founded in 2017 and provides fundraising and fan engagement solutions to clubs, players and organizations from all over the world. They believe that sports are inextricably linked with society and therefore seek to promote and facilitate the access to it by donating the vast majority of the proceeds of each shirt to club-designated charities.
