Optima Football is a consulting company helping professional football clubs develop in a sustainable way with strategic planning and coaching.
In latin, optima means the best obtainable result - and that's exactly what we aim for when helping our clients.
We take the visions from the board room and implement them in the club, all the way to the training ground. Hand in hand with the sports director, technical director, manager, coaches, and other relevant staff members.
Our concept brings club strategies to life and makes the road to long-lasting success transparent and obtainable for the whole club.
We help you take the difficult leap from strategy to practical execution on the pitch.
