This week a group of 12 (ex-)professional football players started with the first edition of the UEFA Assist Career Transition Programme.

The programme started with a 2-day online session this week and will continue for 3 days next week with contributions of e.g. Gijs de Jong (KNVB General Secretary), Bianca Rech (ex-international player of the German women’s team and sporting director Womens Football at FC Bayern Munich) and Maxwell (ex-international player of the Brazilian men’s team, ex sporting director of Paris Saint Germain and currently Chief Football Development at UEFA).

The participants of the programme are: Claudia van den Heiligenberg, Eli Sarasola, Ellen Jansen, Lucienne Reichardt, Maud Roetgering, Suzanne Giesen, Siri Worm, Eric te Paske, Guyon Philips, Steve Olfers, Renée Slegers and Marc van Eijk.
