12 FA Presidents To Attend Soccerex Asian Forum

Wed 16th Apr 2014 | Football Industry Events

A total of 12 national football association presidents have so far confirmed their attendance at the upcoming Soccerex Asian Forum, taking place on 13-14 May on the banks of the Dead Sea in Jordan, in partnership with the Asian Football Development Project (AFDP).

With the ultimate decision makers for football in 12 different countries attending, the Forum represents an unrivalled opportunity for businesses looking to expand their network and to present themselves to these industry leaders. Taking into account new FIFA regulations on host city selection for future world cups, these administrators will also have a say in some of the biggest decisions in world football.

Leading the list of FA presidents will be HRH Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein, (Jordan), Sunil Gulati, (United States of America), H.E. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, (Qatar) and Chung Mong-gyu, (Korea), alongside FA presidents from the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Palestine, Yemen, Lebanon, Kyrgyz Republic, Papua New Guinea and the Honorary President for Norway, with many more to confirm shortly.

In addition there will be senior representatives from the rest of Asia including AFC Vice-President and Football Federation Board Member Moya Dodd, All-India Football Federation General Secretary Kushal Das and Singapore FA General Secretary Winston Lee amongst colleagues from Turkmenistan and Bangladesh.

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie said: “The quality and quantity of the attendees singing up for the Forum is truly outstanding. As the key decision makers behind commercial and development projects for their own FA’s as well as international matters such as future World Cup host selection, these Presidents are amongst the most important footballing administrators on the planet.”

In addition national associations who have signed up for the Forum, a number of premier footballing institutions will also be represented including FIFA, The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, The FA, La Liga, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, the Japan Football Association and Galatasaray to name a few.

The Forum, held in partnership with the AFDP founded and chaired by HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, will bring together the leading figures from the world of Asian football as well as other international football experts to discuss the development of the game across Asia. The conference agenda will include a review of the opportunities for growth and the challenges facing Asian football.
