OUR STORY

In 2006, Sean Conlon started his own football coaching business alongside building teams for local grassroots clubs and signing players to professional clubs. These player pathways started the process of “making footballers”. Within a year, over 100 players were attending and it shortly became the largest football coaching business in London, whilst building links with professional clubs and attracting some of the best coaches.

 

THE WMF WAY

We provide a “real” football experience for children aged 4-12 which as been created over the years by a collection of Chelsea Academy Coaches, Grassroots Coaches, Professional Football Scouts and Successful Digital Marketeers. Over the past 12 years, We Make Footballers has grown to become one of the leading football franchises in the UK, and one of the only coaching franchises to develop players aged 4-12 years old.

BUILDING A BRAND AND FRANCHISING

After seeing the success in the flagship franchise in West London, in 2009, Sean teamed up with his brother Joseph who had his own Digital Marketing Agency. Together, they started building a brand which attracted footballers such as Jamie Redknapp, Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda to bring their children to the company.

At this stage, Sean saw how We Make Footballers could help developing players and coaches across the UK to improve the football experience for all. Professional advisors saw potential in doing this by becoming a franchising business. Their investment and consultancy enabled the company to build a Head Office, online software and infrastructure to grow.
