Marcelo,
WMF Chiswick & Southall

Football has always been a major place in my life, once it became apparent It wasn’t possible for me to play professionally, I immediately wanted to start coaching.

When Sean, CEO of We Make Footballers and a long time friend, invited me to watch an U7 game, I was blown away by the talent on display. This experience strengthened my desire to help young children on their football journey. Since, I have coached and scouted for professional clubs alongside running my franchise.

Prior to starting my own franchise, I worked at We Make Footballers as one of the academy managers. I’ve been involved in the company for a long time and becoming a Franchise owner seemed like a natural progression.

Support

Prior to starting my own franchise, I worked at We Make Footballers as one of the academy managers. Setting up the franchise was a daunting task at first, however, with the help of the We Make Footballers it was made simple and stress-free. WMF have made this a great opportunity and ensure that every Franchisee feels welcome and cared for. I have a really good knowldege of football but really appreciate the business support which I get from the WMF Head Office. I get help with financial planning, sales, marketing and operational support. I would strongly reccomend any football coaches looking to start their own football business to speak to WMF first.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

At present, I have 2 Academies with 4 training days a week, with the main focus on maximising both academies before
expanding elsewhere. I’m enjoying the challenges and the experience, thus far, has been an incredibly positive one.
