The FUTURE OF FOOTBALL BUSINESS Conference will take place for the fourth time in 2021. In 2018 and 2019 it took place as an offline event in Graz (Austria), 2020 we had to switch to an online event due to the Covid19 pandemic. And 2021 the FOFBC will take place as an hybrid event.

More than 200 guests from over 20 nations attended the last physical event in September 2019.

One of the aims of the FUTURE OF FOOTBALL BUSINESS Conference is to be a meeting place for the European football business, where clubs, associations and leagues come together, network, discuss and take ideas with them. The exchange of know-how and the strengthening of international relations are in focus.

Another important point is the opportunity for young professionals to gain insights into the possibilities and, above all, the current problems in the football business and to make contacts with potential employers. These in turn have the opportunity to present themselves as interesting employers to motivated and ambitious junior staff.

The conference is intended to be a platform for the entire football business ecosystem and to offer added value to all members of this ecosystem.

The Virtual Event

To make sure everyone can be a part of the event, we decided to go hybrid and stream all sessions on September 2 on the digital event platform hopin.

Virtual attendees can therefore follow all sessions as livestreams and can also meet and interact with other virtual and on-site attendees and can also ask questions to the speakers.

Access to the digital event platform is included in all ticket types. If you won't make it to Graz, you can still join the vitual event with the VIRTUAL Ticket.

The language at the FUTURE OF FOOTBALL BUSINESS Conference is english.
