Football Business Spring Summit

The Football Business Spring Summit will take place for the first time in Vienna, Austria, on February 27 in the Allianz Stadium of SK Rapid. The focus will be on topics that are highly actual, especially for clubs and leagues.

The Spring Summit is all about solving problems, answering concrete questions and actively working out solutions.

There will be input in the form of keynotes, interviews on stage and panel discussions. But at least as important are the interactive parts – masterclasses and working groups. In these 90-minute sessions, real topics and problems are worked on interactively in smaller groups. The aim is to gain insights, learn and implement things. This allows the guests to take as much input as possible with them for their daily work.

The content of the Spring Summit focuses on five areas of expertise:

  • Marketing & Brand
  • Communication & Content
  • Business Development
  • Fan Relations
  • Commercialization

Speakers will include:

  • Ralf Leister, Moderation
  • Peter Hambüchen , head of global operations, Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • Panagiotis Aroniadis, new media director, PAOK FC
  • Robert Kaspar, assistant professor for Sports Management, University Schloss Seeburg, Moderation
  • Bas Schnater, founder, Fan Engagement Consultancy
