Brexit Impact: “We’ve Bought Ourselves Time For The Short Term”

March 11, 2019

Tomorrow is an important day for Brexit. With the March 29 deadline less than three weeks away, Britain’s House of Commons will vote once again on whether to accept Prime Minister Teresa May’s withdrawal agreement.

On the eve of the big vote, iSportconnect asked sports business executives from multiple rights holders to share their thoughts on what Brexit will mean for their business and the industry in general.

Sharing their views are:

  • Steven Furze, Senior Ticketing Manager at the Rugby Football Union
  • Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director of Premiership Rugby
  • Jimmy Wallace, CEO of Richmond Rugby
  • Edward Kitson, Ryder Cup Match Director at the European Tour
