Sports Entrepreneurs SQA on-line Football Store Game

Posted by drilly on September 24, 2007

This is an on-line business game based on how to successfully run a ‘virtual’ sports store, concentrating mainly on the season-long fortunes of Scotland’s senior football clubs. The Scottish version, backed by clubs including Aberdeen, Celtic, Dundee United, Hearts, Motherwell, Rangers and Partick Thistle, is based on the pioneering work of The Small Business Company (TSBC) in New Zealand.  TSBC are involved in the trailblazing Scottish game, the first new version to be developed anywhere outside New Zealand.

Over 11,000 pupils from some 280 schools across Scotland have already signed up for this exciting game that aims to teach business and enterprise skills.  By running the sports store, students can learn what works in business and what doesn’t; experiment with different tactics to see the impact of their decisions; and learn what it is like to run a small business.  Given the support of Scotland’s clubs, students can also choose to have their ‘virtual’ store decked out in the colours of their favourite team.
