Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein Confirmed For Soccerex

Wed 15th Jul 2015 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex have announced that HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein has confirmed he will be giving an exclusive interview as part of the Soccerex Global Convention 2015, 7-9 September, Manchester.

Following the dramatic events in Zurich in May, which culminated in FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter declaring his decision to lay down his mandate at an extraordinary elective Congress, between December 2015 and February 2016, football’s governing body is set to vote on a new leader.

Prince Ali’s session at Soccerex, just a few months before the elective Congress, will give the football industry the unique opportunity to hear directly from the man in pole position to lead FIFA into a new era.

Shortly before May’s Congress, Prince Ali spoke to delegates at the Soccerex Asian Forum in Jordan where he stated that he felt he needed to run for President because “as wonderful as football is and as popular as it is around the world, unfortunately the reputation of FIFA is not there at all, so therefore a change needs to happen, whether its myself or anyone else”.

To watch the interview in full, please go to https://youtu.be/RrYqEdcwEOI.

Prince Ali is part of diverse and business-focused programme at this year’s Soccerex Global Convention, which includes the likes of MLS Commissioner Don Garber, UEFA Executive Committee member Davor Suker and Rugby Football Union CEO, Ian Ritchie, along with best practice workshops on topics such as social media, sponsorship and Performance featuring brands such as Facebook, Twitter, Heineken and SAP.

The Convention will also host official meetings for its institutional partners The Football League and La Liga which will see senior representatives attend from all member clubs from both leagues.

To view the full programme, please go to Soccerex Global Convention 2015 Conference Programme.

The Soccerex Global Convention brings together over 3000 of football’s elite for three days of networking and business value. In addition to the insight provided by the conference programme, the event offers alongside a market-leading international exhibition and unrivalled networking opportunities.

A programme of social events completes the schedule for what is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading football business event.
