There is strength in unity, the world is changing.
Football is present all over the world.
It was on the basis of these truths that we took the initiative two years ago to create the Global Football Alliance.
Each club must give priority to the local, but to develop and grow you need a global vision. This is the concept of "Glocal". No need to try to break records because it is the quality of the relationship and the work together that will allow us to progress the most and create a strong bond on six continents.
The stronger this link will be, the higher each club will rise thanks to the synergies of knowledge and actions that we will develop in all areas of a club's life, whether it be sports, sales, finance, infrastructure, etc.
It is a formidable source of R&D which is offered to us, which even the very big world clubs cannot have inside their clubs because money does not buy collective human intelligence.
Bernard Caiazzo, President and Founder
Established in 2020, the Global Football Alliance is a strategic alliance of 20 non-rival football clubs in 20 countries around the world. This association aims to increase contacts with clubs around the world, to unite their energy, and to be part of an essential approach to modern football: its "Glocalization".
It concerns all areas of the clubs' daily life: sports, marketing, digital, communication, CSR or environmental protection. The only rule enacted is to have only one club per region of the world in order to maintain a human dimension.
By achieving these ambitions - sharing innovative ideas, creating synergies and leveraging our alliance on global scale - we are growing a sustainable and socially responsible organisation.
Today, the GFA association brings some 20 clubs over the 6 continents. In Europe, we have gathered 10 clubs in Europe and 10 clubs in North and South America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
In the five major European championships, we have representatives from Crystal Palace FC (England), AS Saint-Etienne (France), VFL Wolfsburg (Germany), Hellas Verona FC (Italy), Villarreal CF (Spain). For the rest of the European Championships, we have gathered Standard de Liège (Belgium), one representative from the Balkans, AEK Athens FC (Greece), AZ Alkmaar (Netherlands), one representative from the Scandinavian countries, Bodø/Glimt FK (Norway), and one representative from the Eastern European countries, Lech Poznan (Poland).
For the rest of the world, we got into the Group, AC Paradou (Algeria), Universidad Católica de Chile (Chile), Jamshedpur FC (India), Kawasaki Frontale (Japan), Toluca FC (Mexico), Cienciano del Cusco (Peru), New England Revolution (United States of America).
