London FA Coach Education Hub to be hosted at UCFB

We're teaming up with University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) and Global Institute of Sport (GIS) to provide top facilities for our coaches.

We're delighted to announce the University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) and Global Institute of Sport (GIS) will host our Coach Education Hub at their Wembley Campus.

Their facilities in Arch View House, just outside Wembley Stadium, will host eight coach education events across the 22/23 season, with UCFB and GIS tutors set to deliver the development programme. These sessions are designed to aid the growth and development of the grassroots game, as UCFB academics share their unique knowledge and expertise about the football industry.

Sharona Friedman, President of GIS, said: “We are extremely proud to be supporting the vital coach education sessions and help with the development and growth of the London FA. The agreement stems from rich and ongoing partnerships we have with across the game, and it’s exciting to see this continue to develop.

Course Coordinator at The London FA, Neil Fowkes, added: “The London FA is proud to be in partnership with UCFB as a Coach Education Hub for London. Having relocated offices to Wembley Stadium and the amazing newly built facility at Arch View House, it is a unique platform for Coach Education and Coach Development to develop coaches’ knowledge and have access to an incredible variety of sessions, educators and insight to the Football Industry and the world of Football Coaching.

“The London FA looks forward to solidifying its history of Coach Education at a new home base for years to come and shape the future of Coaches in the Capital, through its Coach Development Programme in conjunction with UCFB.”

UCFB have extensive knowledge of the football landscape in London as current and former Coach Educators working within the grassroots game, visiting and delivering coach education and mentoring for nearly a decade. Working alongside us in most capacities means UCFB have a strong and comprehensive understanding of the clubs, leagues, coaches and players.
