What our
participants
are saying

“The Barcelona, Amsterdam and Vienna conferences were all excellent examples of specialized events that bring together academics and elite football practitioners to discuss ideas and concepts, thus it was an easy decision to get involved and chair the event again this year. Although this year is digital, I still expect some top-class discussion given the calibre of the speakers and the cutting-edge topics on offer. This is a must for anyone wanting to develop their advanced knowledge of the science and football area.”
