Fulfilling opportunities in football for the Gen Z-ers.

Turning your passion for football into a prosperous career.

In the past decades, the global sports market has been one of the fastest growing industries around the globe, reaching an estimated value of $1.3 trillion. Football (soccer) represents approximately half the sports industry’s value, with over $600 billion of net worth, naturally finding its spot in first place, surpassing all sports worldwide like tennis, golf, car racing and basketball, to mention only a few. Growth is expected to continue, and to blossom into more opportunities for the Gen Z-ers and their future professions, both in the sports industry and in the football market, specifically in the U.S.
