Last week Manchester City Football Group announced a partnership with Brand Ed to launch the City Football Leadership Institute.


City Football Group has 10 clubs in major cities throughout the world and is committed to becoming a global platform using Football for social good on a local and global scale.


Brand Ed will provide the educational expertise to produce a programme combining City’s Football knowledge and real world insights with a rigorous educational environment.


The programme kicks off in July with a Next Gen programme immersing 15 – 18 year olds in the world of sport through insight, inspiration and self-reflection, followed by an Executive Accelerator for mid – senior business professionals designed to power up their careers through in-depth case studies and coaching at the Etihad Campus in Manchester.


Two passions of mine – Sport and Leadership Education coming together in Manchester.


Good on y’a City and Brand Ed.
