Course Details


The football business is a multi-billion dollar global industry. This global industry is growing exponentially all over the world. A country-by-country breakdown finds that the sports industry is growing faster than GDP both in fast-growing economies, such as the booming BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China), and in more mature markets in Europe and North America. The key drivers which fuel this market growth will be studied. These include understanding the nature of fandom; the growth and development of the international football industry; and the development of a global strategy.

There are over 200 member associations all over the world who each govern and manage football in their country. Therefore, you will examine all of the international licensing schemes and regulations of the Global Confederation (OFC, AFC, CONCACAF, CAF, UEFA, FIFA), along with the implications of cultural differences linked to commercial and sponsorship opportunities. Furthermore, during your three years at UCFB Wembley, there will be opportunities to interact with global events at Wembley Stadium, thus applying your knowledge and increase your competitive edge in the workplace.
