Enjoy Blueprint for Football? Now You Can Help

Blueprint for Football was set up in February of 2011 around the desire to really understand what drives a successful football development programme. The focus of the site was to analyse as many approaches as possible in as many countries as possible in order to unearth different ideas that does running football academies could look at and think about.

Five years plus down the line and I’ve interviewed dozens of both people within football and those from outside with interesting ideas to share. The site has been read by thousands of people whilst a successful mailing list has grown alongside it. On top of all that three e-books in the “Blueprint According To…” series have been published to further assist coaches with ideas.

All this has been achieved without any real revenue being generated and, whilst Blueprint for Football will always be a project of love, in order to drive it forward we would appreciate some reader support that will help the site move to another level.

That is why I’ve set up a Patreon page.  If you haven’t already heard about it, this is a service where people can commit to pay creators a monthly sum in return for exclusive content.  If this picks up then I will have a monthly revenue source that will go back into the site to help it grow further.

So if you’ve been enjoying the articles on Blueprint for Football, it would be of great help if you could sign up as a Patron.  The monthly pledges start from $2 (although there are higher tiers) which is, in my view, quite a good deal.

The main site will always remain for free so if you’re not comfortable committing to a monthly fee or if you’re not in a position to do so then you need not worry.  That said, those who do pledge will not only receive the bonus features of their tier, they will also have my eternal gratitude.
