About this Event

The Yale School of Management’s soccer club, SOM United, is organizing the inaugural Yale Soccer Conference to promote the role of management in this multi-billion-dollar industry. The conference will take place on February 9th - 10th, 2019 at the Yale School of Management’s Edward P. Evans Hall in New Haven, Connecticut, United States. The topic “Sustainable Commercialization and Professionalization of Soccer” will allow participants to share and discuss best practices, to learn about the applicability of latest business practices in soccer, and to network. The two-day conference will host approximately 30 speakers from soccer and soccer-related organizations such as clubs, confederations, and corporations (media, apparel, sponsors) as well as business school professors, soccer supporters, and (former) players. Furthermore, we expect an audience of up to 400 academics, professionals, and students.

Speakers as well as participants will come from a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities and areas of interest, and will share and represent their varied perspectives. We will explore opportunities for coverage in international print, online and TV media due to the high relevance of discussed topics (e.g., the allocation of tournaments and the widening gap between the clubs / associations and the supporter base) and the global reach of soccer.
