Football is known as ‘the beautiful game’ for its ability to unite people from all over the planet. It’s also a colossal global industry that generates $28 billion in revenue annually.
An industry this big needs an event to connect the tens of thousands of power brokers and influencers to discuss relevant topics and generate business opportunities. The World Football Summit (WFS) is that event, and it’s happening in Sevilla, Spain, on September 20 and 21, 2023.
