Since faculties include world-class experts, it will be a wonderful opportunity for the participants to learn the key mantra of success. Moreover, experts will share their first-hand insight and perspective on the industry data and trends, followed by a detailed dialogue on case studies for practical exposure.
The six modules taught in the 12-month Diploma in Club Management by FIFA are Leadership & Management; Marketing & Communication; Sporting Strategy & Youth Academics; Governance & Legal Matters; Club Operations & Stadium Management; and, Finance.
There will be no direct influence on the statistics and odds drafted by online FIFA betting sites as the program looks to connect more with the backside of the main event. However, it will still have a minimal impact on how the club and its players deliver the overall performance during the tournaments.
Carli Lloyd, the two times FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion and two times Olympic Gold Medalist, said that she was looking forward to taking full benefit of the program as it is important to understand what some of the brightest minds are thinking at the moment.
According to the latest sports news, Julie Uhram, the President of the Angel City FC, stated that the diploma program allows her to invest in herself and the club by learning from the experiences of peers and experts.
Alberto Marrero, the President of Atletico de San Luis, highlighted that the program gives him the opportunity to learn the practical know-how of the industry. He, too, is looking forward to the program for taking advantage of the networking that comes with it.
Gianni Infantino, the President of FIFA, believes that the diploma program promotes the professionalism of global football, enabling many clubs to contest at the highest level off the pitch.
