UEFA Handbook of Football Association Management (UEFA HFM)
The UEFA HFM is a unique handbook for all those interested in the management of national football associations. Written by renowned European academics, it offers an insightful mix of theory, case studies and expert interviews.
The UEFA HFM is an academic handbook best used as a detailed guide to understanding the managerial skill sets required to run or work in a football organisation. By putting into print the expertise of renowned international academics and sport experts, together with case studies and interviews, the book gives a comprehensive picture of football management off the pitch and also a clear illustration of the varying roles and responsibilities that challenge national football associations. National associations may request permission to translate it into their own language.
The 4th edition of the HFM was released in July 2021 and contains four new chapters in order to consistently adapt to the evolution of football and its new challenges. They are Football and Social Responsibility, Women’s football, Football Development and Football Law. Along with these new chapters, the six original chapters have all been updated with new content and examples.
In addition to the UEFA HFM, the UEFA Football Toolbox in Football Management is an easy-to-use practical folder containing various working tools linked to important areas identified in football management. Initially based off the UEFA Handbook in Football Management, the toolbox has been specifically designed with leading experts to support people throughout their studies on the UEFA education programmes as well in their everyday work. The folder provides a concise overview of different tools, specific examples and as well the opportunity to develop tools to be implemented in football organisations.
