We Make Footballers has launched its first international franchise in USA

24 Aug 2022 - UK based franchise We Make Footballers has launched its first international franchise in Florida, USA. This comes after consistent growth in the U.K. for the children's football coaching organisation that blends fun with academy level development. At the time of writing, We Make Footballers helps over 5000 children a week be the best footballers they can be, and has helped hundreds more access professional academies such as Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City. We Make Footballers now intends to help the U.S. reach its massive footballing potential with it's latest franchise launch.

The U.S. based franchise is owned by Paul Williams - an ex-professional football player who played in the Premier League in the 90's for Charlton Athletic and Crystal Palace. The franchise will operate in North Collier Regional Park in Naples, Florida. The new Naples franchise will be the first in Florida, but Paul has plans to quickly scale up the model throughout the state having acquired the master franchise rights for Florida.

We Make Footballers are already seeing strong interest in their U.S. offering from other states. Sean Conlon, CEO of We Make Footballers, is currently in the U.S. helping to setup the first international operation. Sean says "Our growth into the U.S. has long been expected and planned for. Through our combination of strong product offering, custom technology, advanced training model, brand awareness and franchise operations managed by our talented head office team - we are ready to help the U.S. be the best footballers... or soccer players... they can be. We can't wait to see what we can achieve together with our talented partners in the U.S."

We Make Footballers opened its doors in 2010 and grew in reputation in the London area before embarking on a franchise model with investment from Ian Lancaster, an experienced franchise operator with Stage Coach. It now has 28 franchisees throughout the UK and is one of the biggest football coaching brands in the country. It is also one of the biggest providers of coaches for the McDonald's Fun Football Centres. With a strong focus on self development through play, and promoting ball mastery through high levels of ball contact, We Make Footballers offers football enthusiasts and entrepreneurs an opportunity for an exciting and prosperous business opportunity.
