  • Divisionsforeningen assigns education B & T license clubs to double pass

    On behalf of the Divisionsforeningen, i.e. the Danish League, double pass took off with the education of the B & T license clubs. The Divisionsforeningen had given the assignment to double pass to organise its second Master Class Academy Management in Denmark starting on October 11th.

    This is a logical and profound next stage after the assessment process of all football academies of these B & T license clubs. The objective is to collectively educate the CEO’s, Technical Directors, Academy Directors and Heads of Coaching with regard to “How to successfully run an elite academy from a sport technical and managerial point of view?” and by the end improve the way football academies are functioning currently in order to develop more, better young football players.

    This Master Class is being taught in a blended learning format, combining collective workshops with online assignments. It consists out of seven workshops, an examination and the possibility to conduct an internship in a foreign elite academy.

    Who are these B & T license clubs? AC Horsens, HB Køge, FC Roskilde, Akademisk Boldklub, B93, Slagelse B&I, Thisted FC, Holbæk, Helsingør, Hvidovre, HIK, Skive, Nykøbing and Næsby.

    This cooperation is part of our educational services.

  • Danish League continues partnership with double pass

    We are continuing our partnership with the Divisionsforeningen, i.e. the Danish League, and its clubs Randers FC, Sonderjyske, OB, FC Kobenhavn, Viborg FF, AGF, Brondby IF and Lyngby Boldklub.

    After the assessment process of all Danish elite football academies and the Master Class Academy Management which was finished on May 4th, we will enter the third stage in this project.

    During the season 2017-2018, international double pass experts will advise and consult the clubs based upon the insights they gained during the previous phases. The collective consulting services will relate to the club’s corporate management, operational management and football development.

    This project shows our long term approach of building a sustainable talent development system together with our partners. It is like Sir Alex Ferguson once said: “Winning a game is only a short-term gain – you can lose the next game. Building a club brings stability and consistency.”

  • Brazilian Clube de Regatas do Flamengo partners with double pass

    We are proud to announce the newly signed partnership with the Brazilian Clube de Regatas do Flamengo. From September 2017 until December 2018, double pass will be active in the Rio de Janeiro based club for a long-term project on the South American continent.

    Flamengo is the club with the largest number of fans in Brazil – more than 40 million followers -, it was the world champion in 1981, it won the Brazilian National Championship six times and it has never been relegated from the Brazilian Serie A, the highest league in the country. The club has the mindset to invest in and improve its talent development system. That is where the story of double pass came in. We would like to help them securing their future success by optimising their player potential.

    How? During 1,5 years double pass experts will advise and consult the club. An in-depth analysis of the actual situation of the academy has already been done by interviewing the staff, players, coaches and by watching and tagging trainings and games of young players. Out of this analysis, our tailormade consulting solutions and in-depth advice will relate to their corporate management, operational management, football development, resources and productivity.

    Together with the club, we strive for more and better players!
