Boasting 11 years of international coaching experience for clubs including FC Porto, Clube Futebol Valadares and Clube Desportivo Trofense in Portugal, and Shandong Luneng Taishan FC in China, Vitor Matos offers valuable insight into the Tactical Periodization methodology.
Matos has worked in various roles at these clubs including Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Performance Analyst, Youth Technical Director and Opposition Scout.
Matos has been instrumental in the success of the teams he has worked with, leading his 2017 Chinese club side to the U15 Chinese National Championship and U15 SuperLeague Championship, and the 2015/16 FC Porto B team winning the Ledman Liga Pro, with Matos as Performance Analyst.
At IFCCA, Matos will present the Tactical Periodization methodology, which focuses on the training process as a teaching-learning process based on a chaotic-systemic reality that differs from others’ classical approaches.
