The world of football requires a serious intellectual reform, leading to a complete change in perceptions, interpretations, solutions, mechanisms and attitudes within dozens of key football areas. The transformation process has been undertaken by the Football Development Institute – founded by Marcin Gabor.
The Institute’s main goal is to raise the level of football. FDI has the ambition to take over the role of the European Competence Center.
The FDI strategy includes four key substantive directions, referred to as the “Complementary Plan”. One of these is education, implemented on a multi-faceted basis and through various projects. We are currently paying attention to a pioneering event in Europe called the Football Club Management Conference.
We expose the trends and stereotypes present in “modern football”, explain precisely our football understanding, additionally supporting Specialists and Clubs in developing individual “Football Identity”.
Implementation of substantive canons
We present football as a really team-based sport, prove the status of “tactics/team tactics” as the most important aspect, and put the playing concept at the center of all activities and actions.
Realization of educational programs
We organize content innovative and certified courses (one-year, two-year) for 15 Specialist roles in football, based on the “Football Identity of FDI” and the “Club Development Model of FDI”. For Graduates, access to advisory and mentoring support.
Collaboration with Clubs
Also in this context, the “Football Identity of FDI”, as well as the “Club Development Model of FDI” are the basis. We advise, provide professional audits, implement development projects and a program called ” Complex Club Development.”
