In the second half of 2021 we ran a 5-week long “Managing Money” course for our men’s team, which proved to be hugely empowering. The curriculum included budgeting, spending smart, credit and debt, and saving and investment. The players were unanimous in their praise for the course, with the vast majority of them being exposed to these concepts for the very first time.
At the end of the course, we managed to secure a sponsor to provide seed capital for the 11 players who participated to place their first investments – and every one of them was able to prepare a budget to ensure that they are able to save a little bit of money every month.
In the coming months they will all meet regularly for feedback and to discuss challenges they are facing in implementing their financial plans.
We look forward to taking the next group of our HBUFC family through this course over the coming months!
