“Sporting Edge really understands the demands of leadership at the highest level and provides invaluable practical support for our managers”

Richard Bevan — CEO, League Managers Association

The Challenge


The League Managers Association is the representative body looking after all football managers in the UK for their financial and legal issues along with their personal and professional development. Football management is one of the highly pressurised and turbulent professions and managers often need support and guidance to navigate through their challenging careers.

The Solution

All of the Sporting Edge consultants are skilled in counselling, executive coaching and sport psychology. Added to this we have an intimate understanding of life in professional sport. This unique blend of skills allows us to be trusted within the inner circle of elite sport by athletes and coaches who are performing under pressure.

Sporting Edge are the performance partners of the LMA and offer a range of support services for managers who are looking for confidential and professional support. This highly tailored approach features regular 1-1 meetings to discuss challenges and develop strategies for the next phase of the season.

Sporting Edge has also been asked to partner with the FA/LMA to deliver some leadership insights for coaches and managers to enhance their understanding of performance psychology and provide practical tools for their professional development.

The Result


Managers’ value the Sporting Edge service as it offers a discreet sounding board where ideas can be discussed tested and action steps can be decided away from the spotlight of expectation. We believe that every coach and manager is different and our highly tailored service is the best way to deliver impact.
