Access an education in finance using football as a medium to engage you and retain the knowledge you are about to learn.

We understand that finance can be a complex topic and sometimes difficult to learn, but when combined with football the topic is brought to life. We use examples to which you as a football fan, off pitch professional or student of the game can relate, making the content so much more engaging and memorable. We strongly believe this is the future of finance education delivery – through a medium specifically designed to increase the engagement of you, the learner. 
Learn in your own time, in your own space, on any device you choose. With support from your tutor, Neill Wood, Football Finance Professional and Chartered Accountant. Learn more about Neill and his experience and review his motivation to set up Football Finance Professionals in our Journal. Neill has a reputation to create high performing finance teams and he has now condensed his knowledge into a 12-module course allowing you to learn from him, an international finance professional with years of experience at the highest level of the football industry. 

The course is split into 4 sections: 

1. Fundamental Principles – covering the basic debits and credits of football accounting, an overview of football finance and how to understand financial statements. This makes for a level playing field in order to progress through the course. 

2. Intermediary Principles – allowing you to understand the differences between management and financial information, accounting for player contracts and revenue recognition. This increases the level of complexity, building on what has been learned previously. 

3. Advanced Principles – including risk management, treasury, internal governance and head office functions alongside the audit process, covering further elements of the role of a Football Finance Professional, specifically looking to progress into the Financial Controller role and beyond. 

4. Professional Principles – teaching you about debt and equity, inviting you to join in the debate about funding structures for football clubs, before advancing onto the final topics of taxation in football and UEFA Financial Fair Play.
