Since 2010, Elite Soccer has brought the experience of LMA members and ambassadors to coaches around the world.

The monthly digital magazine showcases the technical/tactical expertise of our membership with a selection of training plans provided by members throughout the pyramid.

Elite Soccer has featured session plans from coaches such as Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp, José Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson CBE, Arsène Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino.


The magazine is supported by the website, which provides access to every session plan published in the magazine. The site is an unrivalled resource, allowing subscribers to find ideas and inspiration on every aspect of the game, all conveniently organised by the moments of the game.


Elite Soccer is sent to all LMA members as part of their membership. Coaches, clubs and associations can subscribe to Elite Soccer at or download a free sample issue of the magazine here.


Speaking about Elite Soccer, LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson said:

Elite Soccer is the first time that we have harnessed the collective knowledge of our membership to create such a practical and insightful tool for grassroots and amateur coaches.

"I am particularly pleased that our members have taken the opportunity to get involved.

"All of the managers appearing in Elite Soccer have taken the time to write their session plan specifically for the magazine in order to give you the most rewarding experience as you recreate their session with your players.”

- Howard Wilkinson, Chairman, League Managers Association
