Since it was International Women’s Day we were honored with the presence of the French Football Federation General Secretary and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 Ambassador, Laura Georges who gave a wonderful commencement speech highlighting the importance of women’s football development and women empowerment via football business.
We are proud to announce a new partnership agreement with Real Club Deportivo Mallorca, the oldest club in the Balearic Islands. This partnership will see us and the Spanish football club join forces on educational and strategic development projects.
Maheta Molango, CEO of Real Mallorca had this to say: “For RCD Mallorca it is a privilege to associate with an institution such as The FBA which promotes education and professionalization in the world of sports and particularly football. It is within this strategic line of thought that we welcome access to talent with an international vocation and with a high level of education and preparation. It is an industry trend which is aligned with our club values.”

Promoting diversity and gender equity has been part of our key focus areas since day one, so witnessing that a third of our new Candidates are women is an encouragement for us and everyone else that’s pushing for a leadership landscape fit for our times.
