The Football Business Academy & streetfootballworld Join Forces

Tue 29th Aug 2017 | Football Governance

The Football Business Academy and streetfootballworld join forces to further promote the idea of football for good and ensure that the next generation of football leaders embraces Corporate Social Responsibility by developing a solid understanding and inherent consciousness of the important role it plays in society and the wider football industry.

The Football Business Academy (The FBA) is delighted to partner with streetfootballworld, an international network of more than 120 non-profit organisations that use football to engage young people and drive social change, as it endeavours to educate its students about the enormous potential – and importance – CSR holds to use the global appeal, reach and influence of football to improve lives and empower young people to reach their goals.

Speaking of the partnership Dr. Vladimir Borkovic, Network Director for streetfootballworld, said: “It is with great anticipation and enthusiasm that we at streetfootballworld regard the establishment of The Football Business Academy to provide the necessary educational tools and support to the industry’s budding leaders and ensure a bright future for football.”

Always committed to creating value where it matters, The FBA will support streetfootballworld with qualified interns, Student Business Projects, as well as offer special scholarships to their network members’ employees who wish to take the FBA’s Professional Master in Football

Business in order to enhance their understanding of and network within the global football industry.

At the same time, FBA students will be exposed to some of the programmes streetfootballworld runs through its network – such as football3, Football for Good, and the recently launched and highly acclaimed Common Goal initiative which unites professional football players (such as Juan Mata and Mats Hummels) who pledge 1% of their salaries to charity – in order to develop a practical understanding of how football can be used for social change and how to properly engage with all the relevant stakeholders.

“Words cannot express how proud we feel about partnering with streetfootballworld,” added Kristian Dobrev, Partnerships Director, The FBA.

“Everything we do at The Football Business Academy revolves around building the right future for football and one of the key drivers will and must be the level of positive social change its leaders and stakeholders generate by harnessing the tremendous power of the beautiful game.

“We hope that, together with streetfootballworld, we can amplify it exponentially.”

The FBA will also commit to organise fundraising initiatives throughout the year and donate 1% of its profits to charity starting in 2018.
