The Football Exchange

Delivering real-world solutions to football

Supporting the world of football through world-class research, high quality education and applied enterprise solutions.

The Football Exchange enables the football community to directly access the expertise of its world-leading staff and processes. Over the years we have successfully worked with many football organisations helping them with research, education and consultancy, including bespoke solutions. You can view our Football Exchange leaflet (PDF, 402KB) which gives some background into the work we do.

An award-winning team

The Football Exchange's partnership with Prozone Sports Ltd. has resulted in the development of an industry-recognised education portfolio of courses covering performance analysis, physical analysis and data and recruitment; the courses have proved successful having been delivered to over 1,185 students. The partnership has also brought new knowledge and innovative analysis tools to coaches, clubs, organisations and governing bodies. These successes have recently been recognised by the Educate North Awards as the Football Exchange and Prozone became recipients of the Commercial Engagement Award in 2016.

Case study

Football is a sporting, cultural and economic phenomenon with a worldwide reach but has long been resistant to evidence-based practice. The Football Exchange has transformed the landscape of football research/analysis in a way which has impacted on all levels of the game both at home and overseas.

Football Exchange Women's Network

The Football Exchange Women’s Network is part of LJMU’s Football Exchange (FEx) and aims to connect women working across the world in the football industry by offering opportunities for curriculum placements, peer support, general networking, guest speaker/lectures, and the potential for research collaboration or further study. Core membership is open to any LJMU staff, students and alumni currently working in football.
