A prestigious grant programme designed for academics working in partnership with national associations to deliver research that improves strategic decision-making in European football.

Full description

Programme overview

The UEFA RGP has been established to support visionary research on European football. It is for anyone working on, or already holding, a PhD who is analysing European football from a variety of academic disciplines. Once completed, the research is shared with the 55 UEFA member associations and is used for growth and development purposes. Grant applicants must submit a recommendation letter from a UEFA member association, this ensuring that their project is undertaken in line with contemporary issues and has the highest practical value possible.


The UEFA RGP helps:

• Researchers to conduct their research in the best possible conditions, with access to both funds and data (from national associations and UEFA), and gaining international recognition;
• National associations and UEFA to gain access to the latest research analysing European football from a variety of academic disciplines in order to further develop their own activities and projects.
