European football's tactical and technical development is in the dedicated hands of skilled technicians. UEFA keeps up with technical or tactical issues in football through its publication The Technician, which was first published in 1997.
Since then, The Technician has served as a window on the world of the coaches, coach educators and other members of football's technical community. Editorial columns and informative articles look at key issues of the moment, especially from UEFA's viewpoint, and some of the game's most famous coaching names share their views and insights in comprehensive interviews. Add to this coverage of UEFA's programme of technical and coaching events, and training routines provided by the technicians themselves, and it is clear that The Technician is an essential read not only for the technicians but also for football enthusiasts at large.
