Deutsches Fußball Internat (DFI) and Swiss based Start-Up coachbetter launch strategic partnership for state-of-the-art football content

Deutsches Fussball Internat  (DFI) and coachbetter are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic partnership, combining DFI’s industry leading knowledge about football training with coachbetter’s innovative and user-friendly platform for football coaches. The powerful combination of both organisations will help to provide football coaches with high-quality football content and support the digital development of the game.By using its infrastructure of talented and experienced football coaches and players, DFI will provide video content that will be available on Youtube and special content exclusively on coachbetter’s easy-to-use coaching platform. The short and crisp training videos will display a variety of modern football activities and bring paper-based exercises to life. Some of first videos created for the coachbetter community can be found on coachbetter's own Youtube Channel. In addition, DFI will provide inspirational videos that focus on the football coach himself and its language, philosophy or motivational skills during training sessions.

DFI will use the coachbetter platform by their internal coaching experts across U12 to U19 teams to standardize training planning and expand the infrastructure of Germany’s leading football school.With this partnership and technology playing an increasingly important role in football, both companies show their commitment to the development of digital solutions to improve football.

Coachbetter is a Swiss based Startup that drives the digitalization in the football market with its user friendly and high-speed platform for football coaches. Big data collection, statistics and automated reporting is directly saved in the cloud allowing coaches to access their training plans and team data from anywhere at any time. Also by that, the platform eases the communication with staff, players and other stakeholders through leading tools such as messenger and whatsapp. By virtually connecting football coaches through DFI’s more than 36,000 Youtube followers with coachbetter’s one stop platform and users, the collaboration represents a step-change in the way both businesses address the needs of a football coach and their teams.

“The combination of the content covered with both videos has the power to take the coaching game to the next level. At the same time, DFI commits to its digital transformation”
Sebastian Rass, Managing Director DFI
“The partnership with DFI will allow us to drive far more impact for all football coaches, especially grassroot coaches around the world. As a startup, we are extremely proud to partner with the prestigious DFI and create amazing content for our community.”
Patrick Patzig, Co-Founder and CEO of coachbetter
