Club consultant and co-founder Mats Beckmann met Elversberg’s sports director Nils-Ole Book at a meeting in the summer of 2022. Book explained that the goal for the season – as in the previous season – was to score the most goals of all third division teams. And this despite the fact that almost all of the teams promoted to the regional league in recent years have always played against relegation. On the first matchday, “die Elv” led 4:1 after less than half an hour in the sold-out RWE Stadium on Hafenstrasse, then even beat CL contender Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the DFB Cup and set off on an unprecedented run to the top of the table.
In further conversations, it became clear that Nils-Ole Book is one of the few sports directors who confidently formulates goals and visions and also pushes them forward with all his might. He doesn’t manage, but creates and is open to innovation. Book and the SV 07 Elversberg e.V. fit with their characteristics so strongly to our vision of CREATEFOOTBALL GmbH that it is a special pleasure for us to be allowed to make this club cooperation official and to announce to advise the league leader with our expertise in data scouting and analysis and to support the player scouting nationally as well as internationally significantly.
We are looking forward to many exciting challenges with the most ambitious professional club in Germany!
