Fútbol Más Builds a Better Planet Through Soccer

In 2008, three young Chileans turned their passion for sports into an international organisation, Fútbol Más. The nonprofit uses soccer to build resilience in vulnerable communities by providing soccer clinics for kids. These efforts also provide leadership opportunities for young adults and “fill public spaces with life” in underserved communities. Today, the venture has more than 300 employees across four continents. To support this expansion, leadership adopted NetSuite in its Chilean business unit.

Social Work Across Borders

Eight countries and counting
Headquartered in Chile, Fútbol Más has expanded its social work to Ecuador, Haiti, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and the Dominican Republic, and even into Kenya and France. It hopes to open subsidiaries in Spain and Mozambique in the near future.
Seeking greater transparency
The growth of Fútbol Más and its relationship with organisations such as UNICEF prompted leaders to search for a business solution to support the end-to-end operation. The organisation’s former ERP, a Chilean solution called DeFontana, made it difficult to classify company expenses by location and type, among other issues.
Reduced reporting times
Thanks to NetSuite, the Chilean unit of Fútbol Más reduced its reporting times between 30-40%. Its teams aligned their goals and sped up previously cumbersome processes like expense reporting.
Going international
In the future, Fútbol Más hopes to expand its use of NetSuite beyond Chile and into all the countries where it has presence. As an international organisation, it hopes to boost transparency in its operations—avoiding any signs of corruption—by adopting NetSuite’s analytics tools.
