European Giants Head To Soccerex for Club Football Debate

Mon 11th Aug 2014 | Football Industry Events

Three of Europe’s most successful clubs will be revealing their blueprints for success at this year’s Soccerex Global Convention in Manchester, on 6-10 September.

Titled ‘How to run a club successfully’, the panel, made up by Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre, Sporting Lisbon President Bruno de Carvalho and Galatasaray Board Member Ebru Köksal, will debate the challenges of club administration and explore what is required to run a successful football club in today’s economic environment.

After an impressive 2013/14 campaign where they were edged out of the title, Liverpool will aim to build on last season’s success and, with the backing of Fenway Sports Group, a vast global fan base and some of the largest commercial deals in football; they have the financial muscle to do so.

CEO Ian Ayre has been at the heart of the club's recent resurgence; he will be sharing his thoughts on how Liverpool can return to the summit of English football along with the inside track on the sale of Luis Suarez, one of the summer’s biggest transfers.

At a crossroad between Europe and Asia, Galatasaray are the most successful team in Turkey and one of the biggest football brands in Europe. Backed by Turkish businessman Ünal Aysal and keeping hold of star players such as Wesley Sneijder, they’re set for another exciting season.

Köksal is one of football’s leading female administrators, taking up positions as General Manager of Galatasaray, General Secretary of the Turkish Football Federation and Executive Board Member of the European Club Association, the first time a woman had joined the board.

Responsible for producing global superstars such Cristiano Ronaldo, Luís Figo, Nani and João Moutinho, Sporting Lisbon is a hotbed of young talent and one of the most successful clubs in Portugal. At 42, the Sporting President is one of the youngest senior footballing administrators and also one of the most colourful. He will be outlining his plans for Sporting's future success.

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie said: “Ian, Bruno and Ebru are all at the centre of their respective club’s financial, commercial and administrative strategies, so to have them speak at the Convention is a huge bonus for the thousands of delegates in attendance.”

The Soccerex Global Convention kicks off with the Football Festival on 6-7 September, with the conference starting on Monday 8 September. A packed international exhibition and a programme of networking and social events complete the schedule for what is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading football business event.
