«From Nordic Youth Football to Champions League»

27 – 29 January 2017 Prioritet Serneke Arena, Kviberg Park, Gothenburg, Sweden

The Nordic Coaches Conference will be held at the largest multisport complex in the Nordic region, the Prioritet Serneke Arena. The arena is located at Kviberg Park, east of Gothenburg.

Talent developers and coaches from all 6 Nordic countries are invited to be a part of what we hope will be a yearly event for football coaches who specialise in player development both at general- and elite levels.

We are seeking coaches, player developers and academy managers among other with experience from work in developing players to the elite level of the game. Coaches with a UEFA Pro- and respective UEFA A-diploma (Pro and Advanced). But this is not by necessity.

The conference will be conducted by top quality lecturers and instructors with experience from both Nordic and International football. The programme will include: presentations, practical demonstrations, workshops and panel debates. This will give participants first hand information on the latest development, trends and best practice being used in Nordic countries and internationally today. Several businesses will also be present to introduce a variety of products and services for use by football coaches and clubs.

Our goal is to establish the Nordic Football Coaches Conference as the leading arena for learning, debate, networking and coaching for the coaches based in the six Nordic countries. Player developers and coaches from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands will be invited to the conference. We strongly recommend female coaches top sign up, to take part of this conference.

N.B. Places are limited to a maximum 300 participants.
