International Player and Coach Development in Europe

The Player Development team is holding a number of Player Development Programmes and Coach Education Programmes across Europe in 2022.

Player Development Programmes

Our syllabus has been created by our Academy staff, focusing on every aspect of the game including goal-scoring, defending, possession and domination. Each session is themed around a specific element and our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches use inspiration from our current First Team and Academy to help develop players on our programmes.

Coach Education Programmes

Coaches taking part in our group training days will have access to the same coaching methods used within our Academy, which have developed the likes of Harry Kane and Oliver Skipp

Our philosophy is to create an environment that attracts, retains and develops first-class players.


Global Football Development and Star Sports are joining forces again this summer and will be hosting an international Player Development Programmes in two locations. 

Stade de Marcy

Stade de Marcy, Rte de Villars-sous-Yens, 1162 St-Prex, Switzerland - July 11-15, 2022

Stade En Faclay

Stade En Faclay, Chemin du Parc, 1027 Lonay, Switzerland - August 15-19, 2022


Global Football Development delivered two International Player Development programmes in Switzerland last July and has seen over 250 players coached by our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches over the last three years, with each player having received a minimum of 25 hours of coaching time each year.

A week very well run by the technical staff and Spurs coaches on and off the field.

During this period, we have continued to deliver authentic coaching methods from our Academy and First Team to showcase to players and coaches in Switzerland.

The international programme is based on our player development syllabus, allowing players aged 9-15 the opportunity to develop every aspect of the game, including, goal scoring, defending, possession and domination.

Everything was well planned in advance, the Spurs coaches did an excellent job with the players

Sara Brechet, Star Sports Coach

Each player is monitored individually to ensure they train with players of similar abilities and ages, with the aim to progress every player through the ability levels. Our Player Development Programmes are created within the boundaries of discipline that allows the players to demonstrate flair and individualism.
In addition to the International Player Development Programme, we have delivered a practical coach education workshop for 12 local coaches providing a valuable insight into the Tottenham Hotspur coaching philosophy.

The coaches from the Global Football Development team were fantastic – the standard of the coaching and their interaction with the players was phenomenal, they did a wonderful job here. We at IFK Göteborg are very thankful for this experience and look forward to the International Player Development Programme returning in the summer."
