Founded in 2004 as a spin-off company of the University of Brussels (VUB) double pass quickly became the international reference for talent development in sports and football in particular.

Today we are around 60 people, active all over the world.  We help clubs, federations and leagues on optimising their youth academies and ultimately their player potential.

To inspire, stimulate and support all football stakeholders with regard to talent development is our reason of existence.
Objectivity, adaptability, confidentiality and sincerity guide us in our services to our partners with the objective to be successful. To become successful… It all starts with talent development!
