Connecting, living and working with people coming from different horizons across the globe has never been as intese as nowadays. This bordless world increases the amount of competitors that companies have to deal with in their business environment. The importance of establishing strategies and policies, that enable to blend diversity of cultures and brains, has been noticed by many. Moreover, the increasing necessity of creating a system which is able to struggle against the shortage of talents was and is still rendering even more complicated the task and the duties of leaders and managers of today. We see in the beauty of football not only a passion for the game but also and rather an effective way to face and to cope with the aformentioned two issues. The purpose of this thesis is to spell out and to stress some aspects that emerge from football and that could be suggested as new practices to compete in the 21st century for global companies.
