Our platform is the chosen solution to manage football academies in Nigeria, in a partnership that can be extended to 10 youth football facilities in the country. The platform manages daily more than 300 athletes at Barça Academy Lagos. It integrates, among others, components of player management, scouting, technical area and logistics.

FootballISM is now running at Barça Academy Lagos, Nigeria, one of the several youth football schools that FC Barcelona has around the world. A second academy, belonging to Southampton FC network, begins in January 2019 also with the top Sports Tech management platform. The agreement is part of a broad project to create a total of 10 football academies in this African country. The original technological solution gives to decision makers and staff a tool to rethink management strategies, promote best practices and have an efficient working environment.

The platform currently manages more than 300 players at the Barça Academy Lagos, aged between 8 and 19 years. This academy has the experience of the La Masia school of FC Barcelona, who launched talents like Lionel Messi, Andrés Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez. At the Nigeria academy, there are three dozen football professionals with extensive experience. With the launch of the Southampton venture in January 2019, the future of more than 600 athletes will be leveraged by FootballISM in Nigeria.

The academy presents itself as a center for youth development and local empowerment through the practice of football. It is the first such institution in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa and provides opportunities for potential athletes in the country and on the continent to receive excellent training and improve their skills.

The solution implemented in this partnership integrates the almost complete range of functionalities offered by the platform, including player management, pro scouting, legal, equipment, technical area, medical, logistics, recruitment, facilities and mobile apps (Coach and Player).

Filipe Esteves, Head of FootballISM: “The purpose behind building FootballISM is to reinvent the way football is managed. Football academies and clubs have access to complete information in a single platform, customizable, that allows to integrate the data of all departments. The partnership set in Nigeria with Barça Academy Lagos is the confirmation that FootballISM is the future of talent management in this competitive sport. The agreement makes our platform an additional resource to enhance the effectiveness and reach of the sporting reality in this geography.”
