Reimagine Football builds on the methodologies developed for the open innovation in football by the Football Innovation Platform members, including Change the Game by the Johan Cruijff ArenA, Ajax and KNVB, the City Startup Challenge by City Football Group, and the UEFA Start-Up Challenge and Open Innovation scheme. The sourcing platform is accessible to the football community and beyond to facilitate knowledge sharing and to stimulate cross-industry cooperation.  This can accelerate your development, and enable you to effectively gather feedback and shape your proposition. On the platform, you can directly interact with leading experts from various disciplines, and learn from the best. Additionally, the Football Innovation Platform members have a clear track-record for accelerating innovation, especially through open innovation. Besides the opportunity to talk to experts from a range of leading European Football organizations on the platform, it offers you the benefit of accelerating and scaling the implementation of your solution.
