LAWRIE MCMENEMY CENTRE AT SOUTHAMPTON SOLENT UNIVERSITY
Southampton Solent University
Southampton Solent University is one of the leading providers of football-related academic study in the UK. The University has been at the forefront of this area for nearly two decades. Since 1999, the University has run, in conjunction with the League Managers Association (LMA) and Institute of Football Management and Administration (IFMA), the Certificate in Professional Sport Management and Administration (Football) – the industry-standard qualification for administrators employed in professional football clubs and associated stakeholders. Since 2003, the University has run two highly successful, industry endorsed, undergraduate degrees in Football Studies and Football Studies and Business. These degrees have produced significant numbers of industry-ready graduates who now work in a range of Premier League and Football League clubs.
The University is also home to the Lawrie McMenemy Centre for Football Research (LMCFR), a ‘world-class’ multi-disciplinary football education, research and consultancy centre that supports the professional game by conducting bespoke research commissions, providing consultancy services and graduate-level staff.
