Our Services

Having gained more than 10 years of experience at the Heart of Football, being in charge of the Membership & Knowledge unit at the European Club Association, we collect relevant information for investors on the sports and football environment. The analysis of this information serves as a basis for decision-making.

We also offer secondments for investors and partners to manage a football acquisition and we have built a set of services for clubs across Europe to boost performances off the pitch, directly impacting on-pitch results allowing us to have precise knowledge of various markets. Backed by numerous publications, analyses, and workshops, our extensive knowledge is transversal and applicable at any level of the professional football pyramid.

With multiple levels of information collected and analysed with information reports, synthetic indicators of single and global risk, and various risk-taking recommendation tools, we work as an advisory independent organisation, we provide concrete and impactful actions to investors or the public sector. We have already established a number of collaborative projects and are able to provide tailor-made services.
