Global Image Sports Announces Partnership with the London Football Coaches Association
June 30th, 2017 - The London Football Coaches Association (LFCA) is pleased to partner with industry-leading sports management company, Global Image Sports (GIS) who will become a strategic partner and sponsor of the LFCA.
The partnership will see GIS working closely with LFCA members to help provide opportunities to coach domestically, internationally or even by allowing North American Coaches to attend and tap into the wealth of knowledge of the London based organisation, who have nearly 100 coaches in their ranks. GIS will also provide sponsorship in return for LFCA support in expanding the wealth of coaching material and services.
LFCA Vice Chairman, Ken Goldman noted that: “We’re grateful to GIS for helping us build this corroboration and look forward to offering our wealth of coaching knowledge and opportunities to other aspiring coaches. As the oldest coaching association in England (having been established by then England Manager Sir Walter Winterbottom in 1963) we have an incredible amount of history and passion for the game of football and look forward to being able to allow access to this partnership to our members.”
GIS Chief Executive Officer, James Abrahart said: “We have always built and grown GIS on the cornerstone of its coaching and its quality amongst our professional partners. Every year I am amazed by the sheer number of players and clubs in North America who talk about the coaching we offer being the best they have experienced. Partnering with the London Football Coaches Association enables us to support a fantastic institution but also to continue to offer more coaching knowledge, expertise and international opportunities for our partners.”
Former West Ham United Academy Director, Tony Carr, is The Chairman of the LFCA and has a long history with GIS, having been involved in the inception & development of the West Ham United International Academy and its growth/development. Part of the association will see GIS working with Carr to develop a coaching education syllabus for development of young coaches.
