How other federations handle their biz
« on: February 09, 2009, 09:15:24 AM »
I have been considering doing this for a while now, but better late than never.

I will make posts here from time to time highlighting job vacancies (and other opportunities) in football ... a secondary purpose will be to focus on the job descriptions to show different approaches taken by various organizations in their hiring emphasis at the administrative level, buh ah might drop in couple coaching opportunities here and there.

Given the many comments about T&T's management model in football, some of the posts might be useful for constructive discussion.

Right! Ah starting off with this one from New Zealand:

I like the idea.

Just for a little context: you, or anybody, have background info about the role of football (soccer) in Kiwi life? I suppose that finding their competitive records is straightforward enough but I was wondering how much people does really take it on etc etc.

on a sidenote (strictly speaking unrelated but the topic reminded me): whatever happened to people from Swaziland that had come to the forum for guidance in setting up their own little operation?  I think it was fans.

Here's one viewpoint from a 2002 article:

The Forgotten Game? A Reassessment of the Place of Soccer within New Zealand Society, Sport and Historiography

Abstract:
Soccer is widely perceived as having occupied a largely peripheral position within New Zealand sport and culture. Such a view has also been perpetuated by most of the existing literature, both popular and academic, on New Zealand sports history. This article critically challenges this interpretation and argues the need to reassess soccer's place within New Zealand history and society. Most significantly, new evidence is presented that indicates soccer has been a much more significant and popular sport than previously acknowledged. Key issues that have influenced the development of soccer, including social class and the education system, are identified and an agenda for future research into the sport is proposed.

***

From linkages I've observed, I would say: growth market.
