Birkbeck Sport Business Entrepreneur Brings American Football to the UK

Birkbeck MSc Sport Management & the Business of Football student Faz Hossenally recently held a celebration event to mark the completion of the Fam First Foundation 12-week programme, which was delivered by her new business venture FloRéal Sports at Eastlea Community School in Newham. The programme aims to open the gateway for American Football coaching to be delivered to children in the UK and will soon be rolled out to more schools in East London following its success. The programme consisted of a mentoring programme that taught life skills and coincided with American Flag Football sessions. NFL players Joshua Johnson and Marshawn Lynch, founders of the FAM Foundation, were present to lead a Football meets Football concept drill to inspire the students.

Faz speaks to Birkbeck News about what motivated her to establish the initiative.
