Indonesian football looks to the Liga de Fútbol Profesional for an example of how to keep growing. For this reason, the president of the LFP, Javier Tebas, and the director of the Sport Management Institute LFP-UCAM, José Moya, signed an agreement to carry out training programmes in Indonesia.
The LFP and UCAM will share their knowledge and experiences of modern football in the Asian country. It is an ambitious academic project that will help to perfect and strengthen the structure of the Football Association of Indonesia and the Indonesian Premier League (IPL).
After signing, Javier Tebas declared: "At the LFP we are fully committed to developing all the areas included. It is a pleasure for the LFP to form part of this project and we are here to help with anything required of us".
The programme means that young Indonesian professionals will be able to travel to Spain to share experiences and improve their knowledge of the management of football teams. Likewise, they will have the chance to see how Spanish clubs are organised from the inside and to apply what they learn in their country.
"At the Universidad del Deporte we are delighted to be able to form part of this project in which we will exchange experience and knowledge with future Indonesian sports-management professionals. The signing of this agreement is just the first of many steps that we are to take together", said José Moya.
The Liga de Fútbol Profesional and UCAM will help to strengthen the 'Indonesian Millennium Football Development', a long-term project that was conceived in order to increase the level of organisation in Indonesian football from its foundations, training professionals in the management of professional teams.
The president of the Indonesian Premier League, Djohar Arifin Husin, showed his gratitude to the Sport Management Institute LFP- UCAM "for helping us to increase the standard of training and professionalism in Indonesian football. Our objective is to someday have the same level of organisation as the LFP. It is the model we aspire to".
