SAMSUNG FREE KICKS FOR KIDS
In April 2013 FootballCV commenced a nationwide coaching programme working with European champions Chelsea as part of the Samsung ‘Free Kicks for Kids’ campaign. Samsung's Free Kicks for Kids is a 32-week free nationwide football coaching programme looking to provide over 16,000 one-hour football coaching classes to boys and girls aged between six and 13 by CRB checked FA qualified Chelsea Football Club coaches. Coaching events happen at 24 Goals Soccer Centres on state of the art 3G plastic five-a-side football pitches on consecutive Saturday's between April 2013 and November 2013.
The Free Kicks for Kids coaching classes will be split into four age groups so children are taught with other children of a similar age. The age groups are six to seven, eight to nine, 10 to 11, 12 to 13.
FootballCV's role will be to co-ordinate the events for Samsung, working alongside the other partners, Chelsea Football Club and Goals Soccer Centres.
Having worked with Samsung for the previous three years on their Win a Pro campaign, FootballCV Managing Director Graham Starmer was delighted to be teaming up with them on such a prestigious project. He said: "We are proud to be asked to work on another national campaign with Samsung and to be working alongside such a great club like Chelsea. "It's a fantastic opportunity for young footballers to be coached by Chelsea for free."
SAMSUNG 'WIN A PRO' NATIONAL CAMPAIGN
In 2010 FootballCV partnered up with electronic giants Samsung to find the best unsigned player in the UK to win a professional contract at First Division Swindon Town FC.
FootballCV ran the rule over thousands of entrants who were shortlisted to attend a series of trials throughout the UK. Eventually 22 players were selected for Swindon’s First Team Manager, Danny Wilson, and FootballCV scouts to choose the one lucky player.
The campaign was such a great success the campaign was repeated in 2011. Over 5000 entrants entered before FootballCV whittled the number down to four finalists for Swindon Manager, Paulo Di Canio. After spending a week with the League Two club winner Chris Smith was selected by Di Canio.

As featured on BBC Late Kick Off
"Samsung selected ‘FootballCV’ to become both a partner and to run the trial process of our national 'Win a Pro Contract' campaign in 2010. The project is one of the most successful football activities the brand has run in the UK. FootballCV's knowledge and experience were vital in running the various stages and guaranteed that the campaign ran in a professional and efficient manner. It has been a pleasure to work with the team at FootballCV and we believe that they are the only company that could have managed the process to the standard required. We hope to be working with them again in the near future.
Any company or organisation looking for a partner to run football-related events need FootballCV."
Martin Howard – Sponsorship Account Director, Samsung Electronics UK
"Samsung's 'Win a Pro' is a great break for one lucky lad. So many players are rejected by clubs, or do not get an opportunity to shine. It is a great initiative."

ASSESSMENT TRIALS FOR THE LFE AND PFA
Run by FootballCV for the LFE (League Football Education) in association with The PFA and The Football League, the Assessment Trials provide the perfect opportunity for players who have not been offered Professional terms at their existing clubs to showcase their talents.
The Assessment Trials are held on a regional basis over a number of days in May each year at venues in the North, South, and Midlands.
In 2010 over 300 players were watched by over 150 Club representatives/scouts.
Richard Jobson, of the Professional Footballers Association, commented ““From the PFA's point of view, we were delighted in the way in which the trials were organised and run on the three nights last week. Thanks and congratulations must go to all the staff at footballcv.com for all their hard work and effort which ensured that the project was a major success.”
Managing Director of footballcv.com , Graham Starmer, was delighted with the feedback from the trials – “This is the fifth year footballcv.com have run the trials for apprentices and first year pro’s who have been released from the Football League clubs and hope this relationship with all parties continues."
Corporate Football were used by Nivea For Men to run the final of their ‘Weekend Wonders’ campaign in association with Four Four Two in May 2008.
Following a national competition two amateur football teams earned the right to play at Upton Park, home of West Ham United.
Corporate Football arranged the match on the stadium pitch with guest managers, coaches, physiotherapists, ball-boys, p.a announcer and qualified match officials to give the teams a taste of the professional football experience.
“A big thanks to Corporate Football for their professionalism and thorough preparation for the final of Weekend Wonders. They made every effort to ensure that the prize winners had a fantastic day out and that the whole day went without a hitch.”

Please do not contact the football clubs direct.
Given the opportunity, most of us would have liked to have played professional sport for our living. Unfortunately few of us were blessed with the skills necessary to achieve that ambition. For those who have played the game and for those still playing, it is hard not to sometimes allow our imagination to run away with us and to wonder what it would be like to run out of the tunnel at Anfield or The Nou Camp and play on our field of dreams.
Well now is your chance – Corporate Football can offer this opportunity to players of any age and any ability through the ‘Experience Day’. Corporate Football has been offering teams the chance to play on their ‘field of dreams’ for years at the likes of Highbury, Upton Park and St James Park to name a few.
To launch the ‘experience day’ individuals now have the chance of playing at the home of Premier League Champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Bank Holiday Monday, May 30th 2011. For male players aged 16 to 65 you can play for 30 or 60 minutes on the hallowed turf.
We will provide kits, equipment, qualified match officials, qualified physiotherapists and coaches, tannoy announcer and ball-boys. Guests can be invited to sit in the Main Stand to watch your game and we can also arrange for professional videographers and photographers to record the occasion. Please note changing rooms will be supplied however we are unable to use the official home and away dressing rooms due to club tours.
The concept of Corporate Football is simple - to allow fans, who have only been able to dream about it, the chance to play on the hallowed turf of one of the world’s most famous clubs.
“An absolutely fantastic experience! Though after playing the game I can still barely walk, but that's a very a small price to pay for playing on the Highbury pitch (and actually scoring!). Many thanks again.” Andrew Power
