Episode #93 – Todd Beane

Todd Beane is the founder of the TOVO Soccer Academy in Barcelona. Todd moved to Barcelona in 2002 to begin working with Johan Cruyff to launch and build the Cruyff Institute and eventually Cruyff Football. Todd married Chantal Cruyff, Johan’s daughter, and worked with his father-in-law for nearly 15 years before Johan’s untimely death in 2016. The TOVO Academy is Todd’s continuation of the legacy he set out to establish with his late-father-in-law. Over the past two decades, Todd has learned from practitioners at La Masia, Barcelona’s infamous youth academy, and his father-in-law, Johan Cruyff, to develop clear ideas about youth development, positional play, rondos, and all aspects related to the success of Spanish and Catalan Football.
