The course looks to the future of football leadership


Football is a globally followed and revered sport. In recent years, concerns over diversity and discrimination in the beloved sport have made international headlines. This has put a spotlight on the lack of representation both on and off the football pitch. The disparity in
football leadership representation is even more apparent when gender, race and ethnicity comes into play. The iFlipp MOOC aims to understand, explore, and ultimately address the exclusion of women and people of ethnic minority background (WEM) in football organizations.

  • Resources and practical tools are provided for aspiring football leaders and
    governing body members. Ultimately, the course looks to the future of football leadership and asks what needs to be done to transform the football world from the inside out.
  • This course consists of 4 modules or ‘weeks’. In each module, a different theme will be addressed in short expert videos.
  • Furthermore, each week will have supplementary reading material and a brief quiz or discussion topic to apply the knowledge gained from the videos and readings.
  • Participants are invited to relate the gained knowledge to their own experiences, personal development, or ambitions to create social change within the football
