Davor Suker To Attend Soccerex Global Convention

Mon 27th Apr 2015 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex is delighted to announce that Davor Suker, President of the Croatian Football Federation will attend its Global Convention, taking place in Manchester, UK, on September 7-9, 2015.

Croatia’s all time leading goal scorer, Suker is one of the game’s finest strikers having graced the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb in an illustrious career. Having held the Presidency of the Croatian Football Federation since 2012, Suker was recently elected to Uefa’s executive committee where he joins three other ex-professionals including the re-elected Uefa President, Michel Platini.

Passionate to develop the game further, Suker will share his thoughts on the state of football and the challenges faced to safeguard its future growth. However, his vision doesn’t just span Eastern Europe, but around the world, with the ambitious Croatian targeting a role in FIFA.

“[To be a] member of the Uefa executive board is the first step,” Suker said in a recent interview for RTL. 

“Fifa? That’s the next step in the future, but let's go step by step. There's a lot of work, we have to create projects with the cooperation of the EU, Uefa and Fifa.

“We need to improve infrastructure in Croatia, to strengthen our clubs and leagues, but at same time work in the [whole] region, to help everybody.”

Soccerex CEO, Duncan Revie commented, ‘First of all, I’d like to congratulate Davor Suker on being elected to the Uefa executive committee.

“It is wonderful to see true legend with so much experience on the pitch contributing to the running of the game and I’m absolutely thrilled that he has agreed to share his experiences and his vision for the game, at this years’ Soccerex Global Convention. I look forward to welcoming him in Manchester. ‘

The Soccerex Global Convention brings together over 3000 of football’s elite over three days of a thought provoking conference sessions packed with business insight, alongside a market-leading international exhibition and extensive networking opportunities. A programme of social events completes the schedule for what is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading football business event.
