European Forum to discuss fraud in football

Mon 13th Feb 2012 | Football Industry Events

Following the acquittal of all those involved in the Portsmouth tax evasion scandal, Soccerex has announced that Andrew Trollope, defending QC for the npower Championship club’s former CEO Peter Storrie, will be speaking at the forthcoming European Forum in a session entitled ‘Fraud, Law and Football’.

Trollope is a highly experienced practicing barrister specialising in business crime, regulatory, tax, money-laundering and asset recovery cases. He has represented clients in a number of high-profile cases, most recently Storrie’s, who was cleared of all charges. Trollope is a member of a number of committees concerned with major changes in international legal relations which impact the football world.

In a dedicated workshop Trollope will discuss key legal matters affecting the game today including the issue of match fixing. The session will also consider the new anti-corruption laws which are being implemented worldwide. Finally, Trollope will speak about the financial standing of football now that UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) policy outlaws some of the financial support provided by wealthy club benefactors. Duncan Revie, CEO of Soccerex, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming such an eminent speaker to Soccerex. Andrew’s knowledge of the football industry as seen from a legal perspective is second-to-none.”

In addition to ‘Fraud, Law and Football,’ the Soccerex conference will include content on UEFA’s player and coach development in the wake of FFP and the new Elite Player Performance Plan, and the ‘Art of Management,’ a presentation from one of Europe’s most successful managers. The Forum will also address the relationship between betting and football with consideration to the issue of match fixing, discuss club ownership and financial management with regard to FFP, debate the changing landscape of football sponsorship and look at the turbulent relationship between football and the media. This year’s European Forum will take place in Manchester from March 28-29.
