Soccerex Global Convention 2015

The early part of this week was taken up with a visit to the Soccerex Global Convention 2015 in Manchester.

Soccerex is the world's largest football business event. It brings together the global leaders in the business of football to debate, network and do business. I was lucky enough to be able to attend most of this year's event.

Workshops and lectures attended included Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein discussing the fallout of the FIFA corruption allegations, a trio of “super-agents” (including Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett) on the role of player representatives and “intermediaries”, and a review of the recent transfer market by PrimeTime Sports.

Some of my reports from Soccerex can be found on Betwire: and on grumpyoldfan: - with more to follow.
