SOCCEREX WEEK IN MIAMI
A few weeks ago, our 5th Edition Candidates attended Soccerex USA in Miami, one of the biggest football conferences in the world that aims to bring together the global football industry.
A first step in the football industry for them and a unique opportunity to attend insightful panels and to start building their network, whilst also providing a great setting to meet up with The FBA Family.
The two-day event hosted over 2,000 delegates, 100 exhibitors and 400 rightsholders from over 90 countries.
Senior executives from stakeholders such as CONCACAF, Major League Soccer (MLS) and National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), and football clubs such as Manchester United FC, Atlanta United, Paris Saint-Germain FC, Los Angeles FC and FC Bayern Munich attended the event.
As part of this trip, our Candidates visited the CONCACAF offices in Miami where they were given various presentations from and engaged in thoughtful discussions with top professionals in the Confederation.
Here are the key speakers that gave invaluable insights to our Candidates:
- Nick Noble – Director of Communications
- Heidi Pellerano – Chief Commercial Officer
- Karina LeBlanc – Head of Women’s Football
- Carlos Fernandez – Director of Competitions
- Jason Roberts – Director of Development
Thank you very much for your kind hospitality!
Our Candidates were also invited to attend Inter Miami FC’s MLS Expansion Draft party at their headquarters, during which the club’s Sporting Director, Paul McDonough, and his team selected 5 players ahead of their inaugural season. A unique experience for The FBA and a special milestone for David Beckham’s team.
Thank you Inter Miami FC for the kind invitation!
