Future-oriented teaching takes place virtually! We at the International Football Institute (IFI) understand your needs and know that you cannot and do not want to be tied to a fixed location or fixed times when it comes to your own education and training. We have responded to this.

For us, one thing is certain: even from home or on the road, you have every chance of becoming even better. We always provide you with the latest input at the highest academic level. Always with the aim of qualifying you even further in your current field of activity. And as conveniently and flexibly as possible.

Why we can do that? The IFI has taken an innovative approach to learning since its foundation ten years ago. That’s why our practical education and training programmes have always been semi-virtual. . Based on this experience and our professional expertise, we are able to offer you a special four-week program focusing on “Women in Football”.

The IFI works to make soccer a little better every day. And we believe that on this way, among other things, more women in soccer business would help. We are looking forward to give impulses in this virtual program how this can be achieved.

At this V4WP we can offer you a special constellation at program management level. Our IFI office manager Tobias Bracht, who has also gained experience in this field for eight years on the board of the Bavarian Football Association, is running the program together with his wife Ulrike Bracht (formerly Schlupp). Ulrike has shown as managing director at FC International Leipzig how to assert oneself as a woman in the supposed male domain. The certified coach is also a trained mentor and can also pass on her experience of various leadership programs to the participants of the V4WP.

The V4WP “Women in Football” will focus on the history of women in soccer, then teach you the importance of homologous reproduction (Thomas principle) and the possible influence on the topic of quota and conclude with an outlook on the importance of more women in leadership positions in soccer. In the final focus, we will also look at a possible “how to succeed”.

With this program, we would like to address both women and men who are interested in the topic and would like to expand their knowledge of how to act here. Naturally, one focus is on the advancement of women. After all, it is also important in soccer to promote women further and in depth, whether as players, referees, coaches or volunteers. But we are also sure that the knowledge gained can also be profitable for men.

“It would do the soccer business good if we saw more women in management positions!” says IFI Managing Director Björn Bremer. The experienced soccer manager knows what he is talking about. After all, he has numerous years in German Bundesliga soccer at management level to his credit and has thus experienced the realities first-hand.

The special feature: This condensed knowledge program is completely virtual and application-oriented.

Our top experts from the IFI guide you through the program. They are supported by top-class external experts from the world of soccer, from whom you can not only learn in online seminars, but with whom you can also engage in personal exchange.

With your participation in the virtual 4-week program in the field of women in soccer, you will expand your competencies in soccer and achieve a competitive advantage over your competitors. Because with you the future is already present.
