The pandemic has had a major impact on all areas of the football industry, from matchday receipts to commercial sponsorship and broadcasting incomes. At the same time, private investors continue to flood into the market, looking for opportunities to buy into a prospective recovery. Disruption is not only occurring in club boardrooms. Football has led the way in a Western sporting boycott of Russia in the wake of the war in Ukraine, with Russian clubs and national teams prevented from playing in competitions, meaning an effective ban on Russia appearing at this year's men's World Cup and women's Euros. Meanwhile, tensions between UEFA and FIFA remain, with FIFA’s bold proposition to stage the World Cup every two years instead of four coming under fire. And some of the elite clubs behind the European Super League remain wedded to the project, despite the initial backlash. How will these rivalries play out in the struggle for supremacy?
The Business of Football Summit returns for its fourth edition to discuss these issues and more. Leading investors, club and league executives, regulators, broadcasters, advisors and other key influencers will share their insights in discussion with FT journalists, both in-person at The Biltmore Mayfair, Londonand virtually before a global audience.
