Latvia's online platform to choose a path in football

The Latvian Football Federation (LFF) aims to encourage more people to get involved in the game.


With the aim of encouraging more people to get involved in football and inform them about the various paths available, the Latvian Football Federation (LFF) has created a simple online platform connecting all interested people to the respective specialists.

The platform www.futbols.lv offers visitors direct access to the five primary sectors in Latvian football – player, coach, referee, volunteer and supporter. Users can fill a simple registration form and leave their contact information. The respective LFF specialists will then get in touch and propose a range of possibilities for getting started.

Parents can use the platform to find a club where their children can train, and it is also designed to be the first port of call for anyone interested in obtaining a lower level coaching qualification or wanting to test their skills in refereeing football matches, as well as for young people looking for valuable experience in staging football-related events and supporters of the Latvian national team eager to join a fan club.

All these sectors are central pillars in the strategy for developing Latvian football between 2017 and 2024, titled Football in the Heart of Latvia.
