Directors’ Club Makes Successful Return to Paris
July 1, 2015
The iSportconnect Directors’ Club, unhealthy in association with Sporsora, made a successful third appearance in Paris yesterday at the headquarters of law firm Ravet & Associes.
The event attracted delegates from sports teams, governing bodies and brands from the sports industry in France and beyond.
Attendees included representatives from Chelsea FC, Clipper Race, French Olympic Committee, LFP, Stade Francais, Euro 2016, FIA, Premier League, UCPF and more.
The panellists in Paris included Mathieu Moreuil, Head of European Public Policy at the Premier League, Philippe Diallo, CEO of UCPF and global commercial expert Steve Cumming.
The trio discussed several topics based on the sports business industry and specific issues in France and the UK.
A popular topic on the agenda was the Premier League’s latest TV deal and how this created a competitive league and how clubs benefit from this sort of deal.
They also discussed how the French football league can compete with leagues in England, Germany, Spain and Italy with a focus on turning games into a real game day experience for fans, and a show that attracts partners and therefore generates more revenues.
The Directors’ Club will be returning to London in August, stay tuned to iSportconnect.com for announcements and further details.
