iSportconnect and Field Fisher Waterhouse are proud to announce the Financial Fair Play (FFP) Masterclass, an inviation only event for executives of rights holders, governing bodies and sports teams to discuss and learn about the most pressing issue in European football.
The FFP Masterclass is an opportunity for executives to learn about football’s financial regulations, as well as the consequences that clubs face should they fail to comply.
The FFP Masterclass will feature presentations, panel discussions, practical insights and interviews with top sports finance executives and in-house lawyers from football governing bodies and a variety of European football clubs.
Javed Khan, Financial Director of the Premier League, will be in attendance to explain the League’s new Profitability and Sustainability Regulations. He will be joined by Nick Craig, Director of Legal Affairs for The Football League, with other esteemed panellists to be announced in due course.
Speaking on the launch of the FFP Masterclass, Nick Craig said: "The new financial regulations are already beginning to form a crucial part of the domestic and European football landscape. With this in mind, all involved in the game must understand the rules and how to adapt to the changes. The iSportconnect Masterclass is the perfect event to promote and enhance understanding of these new regulations."
iSportconnect Chairman Michael Cunnah added: “I am very pleased to announce the FFP Masterclass which, I believe, will be of real value to everyone concerned. FFP is the biggest structural change that football administrators have faced since the Bosman ruling came into force. As everyone works out the impact of these regulations and to what extent they will be enforced, Football Executives must be spending every waking hour thinking about, and planning for, these new regulations. They are that important.”
