FRANCHISES SL Benfica FUTSAL ACADEMIES
Program specially developed to internationalize the SL Benfica brand and maintain a constant presence in countries and markets where SL Benfica is not normally present.
The idea is that clubs can buy a license that allows them to use the SL Benfica brand on their premises, always with instructions from SL Benfica. Clubs may change their name to SL Benfica London or SL Benfica Essex and, under franchise conditions, clubs will be required to attend coach training courses and acquire SL Benfica brand kits, as well as other obligations.
These Franchises ensure that clubs commit to various elements of the BFP (Kits, Tours and Coach Education) and thus meet the quality standards required by SL Benfica.
