  • to realize positive results in youth programmes with more players entering professional leagues.
  • to get grassroots clubs better organised and become a solid foundation of a strong football community.
  • to help building a sustainable talent development structure based on a scientific model that is practically oriented. In this way, they assist in realising a qualitative inflow of players at professional level.
