Soccerex has announced that October’s African Forum will move to Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium, while pay-television broadcaster SuperSport has agreed a two-year partnership for the event.
This year’s Soccerex African Forum, being held from October 1-2, will relocate to 2010 FIFA World Cup venue the Moses Mabhida Stadium to accommodate a larger exhibition space and a second studio for the expanding conference programme. SuperSport, which operates throughout sub-Saharan Africa, will become the exclusive broadcast partner for the Forum. As part of the partnership, SuperSport will host a series of special workshops to promote the development of best practice within the business of football in Africa focusing on key topics such as compliance, marketing, media, sponsorship and technical issues.
Stanley Matthews, SuperSport’s sports and commercial director for Africa, said: “This is yet another exciting platform for SuperSport to reinforce its commitment to the development of football and football expertise in Africa. Stakeholders from throughout the continent can come together, share ideas, our approaches to the challenges we face and network with the interests of football on the continent in mind. It is a fantastic forum.”
The Soccerex African Forum will bring 1,000 senior football decision makers together with businesses from across the continent and the world for two days of learning, networking and business opportunities to unite the business of football in Africa.
