Sport for Business Football in Focus

We are excited to be hosting a very special event looking at the business of Football in Ireland in 2020.

Learn about the Euro 2020 tournament coming to Dublin in June from Niall Quinn of the FAI, Don Daly of Dublin City Council and others charged with delivery of one of the biggest sporting events ever to be staged in Ireland.

Hear about the opportunities to work with the FAI as last year’s travails recede and the strength of the sport as a way of reaching fans comes back to the fore.

Take a look back with a review of where the Irish Women’s National Team are after key games in qualification for Euro 2021.

Hear from Niall Quinn and others about the following week’s key matches that will decide if Mick McCarthy and the Men’s National Team will be coming back to the Aviva in the finals of Euro 2020.

This promises to be a very popular event among members of the Sport for Business community.

We will be gathering in the FAI Suite at the Aviva Stadium from 0700 for a buffet breakfast and getting proceedings underway at 0800.
