3 YEARS ANNIVERSARY
The FBA turned 3 years in April and we wanted to celebrate this important milestone with everybody.
Ever since The Football Business Academy was established, our main objective has been to deliver an innovative experience which would create the best bridge possible between those who dream of working in football and those who currently do, thereby accelerating the professionalization of this dynamic and passionate industry and prepare future football business leaders.
Over the course of these 3 years, we’ve had the chance to welcome a total of 97 Candidates into The FBA Family, of which 52 have become Alumni and 45 are currently enrolled. Dozens of Professors and Guest Lecturers and about 30 Partners and counting have ensured that all FBA Candidates receive the knowledge, experience and network necessary to conquer their dream and successfully complete their transition into the football industry. We’re humbled by the trust and all the support we’ve received over the years, and want to thank every single person who has played a part in making The FBA what it is today.
Lots of memories and laughter have been shared throughout these years, and, confinement-restrictions applicable, we’ve tried to encapsulate as many of them into this video as we blow out 3 candles.
We are excited to announce the arrival of a new Faculty member: Nicole Allison!
Nicole is our new Professor of Women’s Football Development. She has extensive experience working with players, agencies, rights holders, sponsors, and clubs. Most notably, she worked as the General Manager at Tottenham Hotspurs Ladies FC, helping the club achieve professional status and promotion to the top tier.
Our Candidates will gain valuable insights and knowledge thanks to Nicole’s experience and we can’t wait to have the first class with her!
