Course Description

Introduction to Football Management Course

The initial appeal of this course is aimed at football fans, but a secondary benefit will be to appeal to both current and future football managers.

Football managers are currently in the limelight. Indeed, whether it be in Europe, UK, the U.S.A, or Asia, fans and the media have placed enormous pressures on the managers. This is likely to continue. In some respects, the role of the football manager is as challenging as that of any in business.

This course highlights the strategies and techniques applied by some of the most successful English football managers and provides a ‘blueprint’ for football managers at all levels.

Managing is a process that is applied at every level within a football club structure. Many of the management functions, i.e. planning, staffing, organizing, leading, controlling, are just as essential for the managing director of the club as for the first team manager.

However, to date, there is little literature available that deals with the management process within football. This course will attempt to redress this balance by providing ‘best practice’ in a subject that is increasing in importance.

What determines football management? What abilities should football managers have to achieve success in international competitions? How can they develop these abilities?

Many researchers specialize in questions of strategy and tactics in football, in technical, physiological, and psychological aspects of players. However, these are questions of education for professional football players in clubs.

There are few researchers in Russia who examine the process of football management at the level of national teams and development of students who learn to manage national football teams. Currently, a university education is recognized as an important part of the education of a young manager of the football industry, and it is useful for students to find the answers to these questions during their course of study.

This course is open to anyone to enrol with or without any previous knowledge, qualifications or training in football. Anyone is welcome to take this course and is ideally suited to football fans or those working close to the game!
