After playing in Europe for 15 of the past 16 seasons and six European titles, there is no doubt that Sevilla FC, currently seventh in UEFA's Club Ranking, is a European giant. The club's participation in the prestigious Financial Times Business of Football Summit, taking place on Tuesday 21 May in London, is yet another sign of this.
Sevilla FC, through their General Director, José María Cruz de Andrés, will participate in the event alongside Arsenal FC's General Director, Vinai Venkatesham. The two of them will take part in a panel named 'A new era of leadership: models to achieve success and be sustainable on and off the pitch' which will discuss the arrival of FFP into football and how clubs have had to design their sporting projects sustainably, spending within their means.
Many famous faces from the world of football will take part in this prestigious event, such as FIFA's Deputy Secretary General, Zvonimir Boban, the General Director of the Premier League, Richard Masters, the General Director of the Bundesliga, Christian Seifert, the President of La Liga, Javier Tebas, and the President of the MLS, Mark Abbott.
In addition to Sevilla FC, other important European clubs will take part in the different panels organised by the Financial Times, namely FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Arsenal, Everton, Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Galatasary.
