Friends - IFBI.Brussels



At first we would like to thank the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) for their support. Former president (2008-2016) professor Paul De Knop is happy that they can help IFBI. "At the VUB we were already working for many years to professionalize sports, also football. There is still a long way to go and that is why we want to support IFBI."


As a part of their commitment to the promotion of training, SD Eibar and the International Football Business Institute (IFBI) have signed a collaboration agreement which will see the club and the Brussels-based university share knowledge over the course of the coming year. Through the creation of an Official Academic Partnership with the International Football Business Institute, part of the University of Brussels, SD Eibar wants to give students the right set of tools to launch their careers in the world of professional football.


Following the guest lectureship of Tomasz Zahorski -Proxy of the Management Board at Legia Warsaw- and our visit to the Polish Army Stadium, we are extremely proud to have been able to establish a brand new friendship agreement between the International Football Business Institute – IFBI and Legia Warsaw. Together #WeThinkFootball.
