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. Tensions between UEFA and FIFA are rising as FIFA’s bold proposition to stage the World Cup every two years instead of four has come under fire from UEFA and a number of leagues and clubs. How will these rivalries play out in the struggle for supremacy? The Business of Football Summit returns for its fourth edition to discuss disruption, recovery and the struggle for power. 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, London and virtually before a global audience.
