July 6, 2010

The commercial director of Premier League club Liverpool, Ian Ayre, has confirmed he will be speaking at the Soccerex Asian Forum, which takes place on 28 and 29 July at the Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore.

Ayre, a lifelong Liverpool fan, spent 15 years living in Asia prior to working at Liverpool, including several with sports marketing company Total Sports Asia.

Ayre said: “It’s great to be involved with the Soccerex Asian Forum. Asia is a hugely important market for Liverpool FC and it is essential to recognise and respect its values when doing business there.

“I look forward to sharing my experiences at the Forum, and hopefully to catch up with old friends and meet new faces in the industry.”

Other high profile speakers at the event include: Mohammed bin Hammam (president of the Asian Football Confederation), Worawi Makudi (president of the Thailand FA), David Dein (international president of England 2018 World Cup bid) and Andrea Radrizzani (group CEO at agency MP & SIlva).
