FIFA takes club execs back to school with new Diploma in Club Management

November 3 – FIFA has launched its own Diploma in Club Management to provide club executives “with the latest practical know-how and insights from leading football industry experts”.

“The programme will analyse the latest trends, including best practices, across the following key areas: leadership and management, club operations and stadium management, sporting and youth academies, governance and legal matters, marketing and communication, and finance,” said FIFA.

Online classes will start next March and conclude in January 2022. In-person classes are scheduled to take place from 9 to 12 September 2021 and from 13 to 16 January 2022 in London and Zurich respectively, subject to travel restrictions.

The diploma, said FIFA, is in line with its objective of “creating a more balanced ecosystem by sharing the necessary tools and expertise in order to increase the number of clubs from every region of the world that are able to compete at the highest level.”
