FIFA Vice President Confirms Soccerex Attendance

Mon 2nd Dec 2013 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex have announced that FIFA Vice President, Jim Boyce, will be part of the agenda-setting conference at the next Soccerex Global Convention, 6-10 September 2014, Manchester.

As part of the FIFA Executive Committee responsible for some of FIFA’s most vital decisions including hosts of FIFA tournaments and number of teams involved, Boyce will be sharing his extensive experience within the football industry and his thoughts on what the future holds for different aspects of the beautiful game.

Boyce said: “I am delighted to be participating in the Soccerex Global Convention next year in Manchester. The event has proven to be an important platform for the football community, one regularly used by my FIFA colleagues and I look forward to be involved in 2014.”

The FIFA Vice President, previously Northern Ireland FA President for over ten years, has recently commented in light of UEFA President Platini’s recent World Cup proposal, in which he’s suggested having eight more teams to accommodate more African and Asian countries.  In response, Boyce told the Times, "I would be very interested to hear what he has to say. It is not something I have heard mentioned but it is certainly something I would give my full consideration to, once I have the full details of Platini's proposal.”

Regarding the involvement of Jim Boyce, Soccerex CEO, Duncan Revie said:  “Jim is such an influential and longstanding figure within the football hierarchy and we’re delighted to have him on board for next year’s event. His wealth of football experience, both nationally and internationally, will mean we’re in for an insightful and enjoyable session!“

The Soccerex Global Convention is a five-day football business event which is returning to Manchester after 12 years on the road, around the world. The event will see the elite of the world’s football industry come together to learn, debate, network and most importantly do business.
