About Me

Cut my arm, there will be football and only football coming out. Indeed, not only I am a former semi professional football player, I also combined my love of this sport with 11 solid marketing experience at adidas Headquarters, EA Sports, and now working as a Sports Marketing Director at KFL Marketing.

I want to give you a football marketing angle and how, why partnership deals are made. Why clubs and players are now brands, and how football marketing is essential to the development and a sustainable future in football. I will focus essentially on adidas, Nike and Puma -and also other football brands- in order to give you an understanding of the fantastic industry I work in.

Enjoy my Football Lounge!
Karl

  2. Hello, Karl
    Curious. Are you still employed by Adidas? If not, what do you currently do on a full-time basis? I came across your site while browsing on the web. Thanks for sharing your love with the rest of us. Kindly appreciated.

  3. Hello FABO,
    Welcome here. I am now self employed ie a Football marketing consultant. An activity that takes 90% of my time with World Cup around the corner, but I love it.

  5. Hi Karl,

    U have a supa blog going on here. I’m looking to start a sport blog here in South Africa. So I’ll be tapping into your knowledge from time to time. I really love the football lounge.

    I picked up your blog from the Liverpool sponsorship deal news.
