Zahavi, FIFA and FC Porto to discuss Player Ownership and Transfers at Soccerex

Mon 15th Oct 2012 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex is delighted to announce that world-renowned football agent Pini Zahavi will be joining Omar Ongaro, FIFA Head of Player Status, Daniel Lorenz, FC Porto’s Director of Legal Affairs, Marcos Motta, Partner of Bichara e Motta Advogados and Daniel Cravo from Daniel Cravo Souza Advogados Associados to discuss player ownership and transfers at the Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro, 24 -28, November.  

With hundreds of millions of pounds exchanged through player transfers every year, the panel will look at the state of the international transfer market with a particular focus on player ownership and the financial opportunities and legal issues involved.

Mr Zahavi is one of the world’s leading football agents having worked on some of the biggest football deals in the world including Rio Ferdinand’s record-breaking move from Leeds United to Manchester United. He is most notably known for his central role in Roman Abramovich’s acquisition of Chelsea Football Club in 2003, where he was responsible for brokering the influx of new signings at the club.

Speaking about his involvement, Omar Ongaro said: “I am really looking forward to my participation in this year’s Soccerex Global Convention. The transfer of players is an integral part of football and it’s important that the industry is fully aware of its regulation. Soccerex is an ideal platform to address the football industry and I will be pleased to offer a technical insight into the matter.”

Commenting on his participation, Daniel Lorenz said: “I am very excited to be coming to the Soccerex Global Convention as I’ve heard great things about the event. I’m looking forward to speaking on the panel as well as catching up with old colleagues and friends from around the football world.”

The Soccerex Global Convention is a five-day business event consisting of a comprehensive seminar line-up, a number of networking opportunities, a two-day football festival and a packed exhibition which is already close to selling out.

Held in a purpose-built venue within the Forte de Copacabana, with panoramic views of both the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the exhibition is a hub for business activity; as one of the main components of the convention it provides a platform for leading suppliers from around the world to showcase the latest industry products and services to delegates.
