Swindon Town Football Club and Chevening

Swindon Town Football Club is partnering with Chevening to support a scholar from Pakistan to study a master’s degree in football science at:

  • Solent University (MSc Football Science).

Why is Swindon Town Football Club partnering with Chevening?

Whilst the focus to date has been on developing players, Swindon is now looking to expand its offering and develop local professional coaching capabilities by partnering with Chevening.

Swindon Town FC is excited to be partnering with Chevening to develop local football coaching talent, and as part of its international engagement work, take the game in Pakistan to the next level.

Once they have completed their master’s degree, the hope is that the scholar will return to Pakistan to develop the next generation of local talent, elevating the standard of the game across the board as future leaders in the sport.
