Federations and clubs have to deal with these impacts and have to come up with new strategies and creatives solutions. The goal of the event is to point out some practically relevant key issues with a focus on current developments.

 

The target audience of the event are the representatives of international and national football federations/associations, clubs, consultants of players’ funds, lawyers, CAS arbitrators, and companies working in the football industry, agents and sport managers.
