A selection of the UK’s leading football and sports business ambassadors will come together at England’s St George’s Park headquarters for the second edition of the UCFB Future Leaders in Football and Sport Conference, to be held on Thursday 14th February.

Open to all Year Three and Masters students, the conference will bring together some of the UK’s main figureheads from the football industry to inspire students and explore solutions in sports business.

“We are delighted to be launching the second edition of the UCFB Future Leaders in Football and Sport Conference,” said Neil Silver, Head of Employability & Enrichment at UCFB.

“Our aim at UCFB is to help develop highly qualified, motivated and experienced graduates to drive the professional football and sports industries forward across the globe,” he added. “The opportunities for networking, insight and inspiration at the conference will be unparalleled and will assist us in our goal of creating the next generation of sports industry leaders.”

UCFB will announce the full line-up in the coming weeks, where students can expect a number of exciting names from across the industry. Last year’s event included appearances from former Scotland manager Gordon Strachan, LMA chief executive Richard Bevan and former England goalkeeper Rachel Brown-Finnis.

Gordon Strachan speaks to students at the 2018 conference.

Neil Silver added: “The UK sports industry is going from strength to strength and it is fitting that we host the UCFB Future Leaders in Football and Sport Conference at St George’s Park, which has been a hub for so much development and success in UK sports over the last 12 months.”

Attendees will also be given a tour of St George’s Park – the home of England’s football teams and a national centre for sports education – where they will be able to speak to staff and coaches on-site.

Tickets for the conference are available on a first-come, first-served basis for all Year Three and Masters students. To book and for further details click here.
