We are the only organization based on a self-defined “Football Identity”. This means that all projects have been based on the own football intellectual foundations, as well as typical definitions, concepts and models of FDI. The main goal of FDI is to raise the level of football in Europe over the next dozen years.
In order to achieve all the goals (main | specific), a various actions are needed, including numerous levels of influence. We realize our mission on the basis of the “Complementary Plan”, consisting of four conceptual elements. One of its key segments is “Education of Specialists”, which consists primarily of certified courses, advisory, educational internships, mentoring programs, as well as the developing of an individual “Football Identity”. In addition, we organize webinars, conferences, and also online courses for Specialists.
The second highly important part is “Club Development” based on the “Club Development Model of FDI” which we have created. In our cooperation, we focus on defining a characteristic “Club Identity”, and specific support takes the form of strategic consulting, content-related audit, innovative development projects and implementation of the “Complex Club Development” program.
Moreover, we focus on “Content-related Communication”, transferring knowledge through communication channels, publications (articles | books | research projects) and expert appearances. In this way, we establish the foundation in the form of building correct football awareness and correct football understanding, popularizing new content canons and implementing professional standards.
The fourth component in the strategic plan of the FDI includes activity in the “Analysis & Research” area. The relevant department of our Institute is engaged in the creation of databases and content research. In addition, we have the competence to run research projects and prepare data for our own publications. We also make tactical analyses for European Clubs and develop our own analytical brand in the ELITE area.
