The FBIN Conference is coming to Vienna in October

Hosted by SK Rapid in their Allianz Stadion, the FBIN Conference will bring together the European football business in Vienna on 19 October. Early Bird tickets are now available.

After four editions of the FUTURE OF FOOTBALL BUSINESS Conference since 2018, the event got a rebranding to FBIN Conference. The theme stays the same: it’s all about innovation, transformation and development of football clubs, leagues and associations with 100% focus on non-sports topics.

In early 2020, we were guests at the Allianz Stadion with our Spring Summit, now we are back with our main conference expecting more than 200 attendees from all across Europe coming to Austria’s capital on 19th of October.

First speakers confirmed

Five speakers are already confirmed or the FBIN Conference, about 15 more will follow during the next days and weeks.

Michal Mertinyak, Executive Director of the Slovak Football League, just rebranded by the new naming right partner to Niké Liga, will be on stage.

Raphael Landthaler, former CFO of SK Rapid and Executive Board Member of the Austrian Bundesliga, recently joined the Czech club Viktoria Plzen as Board Member & Co-Owner. He will explain the details of this acquisition and the plans for the future.

Thomas  Rypens, Direct-to-Consumer Director at Club Brugge, will not only have a presentation on the mainstage but also invites up to 25 people to a following in-depth breakout session.

Bálint Máté, Head of International & CSR Department at one of the biggest clubs in Eastern Europe, Ferencváros, will also do a 35-minute interactive breakout session focusing on the creation and evolution of the international & CSR department of the Hungarian giant.

From the reigning Czech champion and as well one of the biggest clubs in Eastern Europe, Sparta Praha, Marketing Director Kamil Vesely joins as speaker. Vesely will give insights into how Sparta managed to increase their stadium attendance to the highest number in 40 years.

“The five confirmed speakers set the direction. We want to bring stories and projects to the stage that are highly relevant for football organisations. Small and medium-sized clubs, leading clubs in smaller leagues and also smaller clubs in big leagues are often very innovative and have carried out amazing transformation and development processes. And we all can learn or at least be inspired by them”, says Thomas Maurer, Managing Director of FBIN.
