LPF has taken another step towards modernization of the management of the game. For the first time in the history of Romanian professional football, the LPF football league has decided to incentivize the next generation of managers in the world of sport by offering students lucrative scholarships and the possibility to experience the world of sport behind its curtains.

“It is important that students realize what potential the management in sport, in particular football, has. Like in other European countries, the bond between national education and football institutions are very strong. It basically paves the way to the future, creating chances for students to discover the world of management beyond the football field and for institutions to have the chance to recruit the best of the best and to develop further its managerial capacities”, said Justin Stefan, the leagues General Secretary at the launching event yesterday.
