• double pass is considered a golden standard in Talent Development with an extensive knowledge and database of grassroots and Elite football academies, having conducted assessments worldwide since 2006.
  • double pass provides benchmarking versus Elite European football clubs as well as objective insights and tailored solutions and recommendations.
  • double pass inspires by means of international football experts creating frameworks within your club context, together with the football academy.
  • double pass provides an outside-in approach supported by a robust and scientific-based model for your football Talent Development set-up.


Every consulting assignment starts with an analysis of the situation “as is” (e.g. Pakhtakor Tashkent FK) to determine the current working context in the club and/or academy. Therefore double pass developed a scientifically proven holistic Talent Development Framework.  

Based upon the input and available resources (budget, staff, infrastructure, technology, etc.) available; we look at Strategy and Structure, the processes and the implementation, to then analyze the outcome of the work in the academy.

Connection is the first fundamental outcome, as there must be a connection between the different departments as well as between the academy and the first team. Another important aspect is the translation from theory to the on field practice. And last but not least the productivity and the Return on Investment (ROI) of your academy are analyzed.

After the analysis, a detailed report is produced with information about the current status and tailored and concrete advice on how to improve it. We benchmark your club against other clubs in an international context.

Based on this report, we suggest a co-creation approach, a scope and a timeline which varies from one day to multiple years depending on the findings and the needs of your club.
