Fulham have today announced a partnership agreement with Scottish Premiership side Dundee United designed to benefit ‘both clubs’ future long-term strategies’.
A statement on Fulham’s official website says that the unique collaboration will include:
- Sharing market intelligence on players
- Player development knowledge sharing
- Coach development exchange at Academy level
- Games and player visits at Academy level
- Commercial, Retail & Operational best practice
Fulham’s head of football development, Huw Jennings, said:
“We are delighted to be signing this collaboration agreement with Dundee United. We have been seeking like-minded partners to support our football development ambitions, and the Tangerines represent a perfect fit for us.
Our clubs share many historic features, such as our respective stadiums, but as important are the synergies that we share in our outlook for the future. Brexit represents a major gear shift for player acquisition in our industry, and by collaborating with a partner club in the UK we can both gain a competitive advantage.
The team at Dundee United share very similar values to ours and have a great track record for player acquisition and talent development. We are really looking forward to cementing the partnership over the coming months and years.”
