The creators

Football CEO™ was created by Vi-Ability (Social Enterprise of the Year 2015). Vi-Ability provides transformative training and work experience, helping people get off the streets and into employment by learning to run a sports club. The game explores the complexities and challenges of running a football club as a business as well as the impact football can have on people and its importance within the community.

It’s serious fun: profits from the app will go towards funding places for society’s most disadvantaged on our training programmes around the UK and abroad. Our programmes help individuals with self-belief & job prospects, whilst allowing sports clubs to run viable businesses, ultimately benefitting the whole community.

So go on, download the app – there’s no better way to shape up your business skills and transform lives at the same time!
