VUB spin-off Double pass specialised in sport technical and talent development management, has been chosen as the partner to roll out FIFA’s new groundbreaking Talent Development Programme.
This worldwide project, in which it is expected 120 nations will participate, will be rolled out in several phases. About 15 talent development experts from double pass will be involved in this project to create this unique picture of football academies all over the world.
“FIFA wants to ensure that each talent gets a chance and each Federation gets the opportunity to optimise their talent development system. Over time, this will lead to a more balanced competitive landscape. This High Performance Programme will analyse and support Football Federations and Clubs/Academies with regard to their processes to set up a sustainable, long term talent identification and development programme”
