AMMAN: Soccerex and the Asian Football Development Project have cemented their commitment to the development of football across Asia by signing a new two-year deal to host the Sfccerex Asian Forum in Jordan, with next year’s edition taking place on April 14-15.
The deal, signed by Soccerex ceo Duncan Revie and chairman and Founder of the AFDP HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, will see the two organisations working side-by-side over the coming two years to strengthen and improve the business side of the game in Asia whilst raising awareness for a number of social causes being carried out across the continent.
Building upon on the success of last year’s Forum, the event will continue to be a gateway to Asia for the world of football and will bring together 1,000 of the leading administrators, business figures, brands and footballing legends in Asian football with their global counterparts for two days of networking, learning and business.
Prince Ali said: “The signing of this new agreement reinforces the commitment our two organisations made to the development of Asian football last year. I’m very pleased to be working alongside Soccerex again to capitalise on the business and social development opportunities created by the market and to provide a platform which will unite Asian football.”
Revie added: “Our new partnership with the Asian Football Development Project will allow us to build upon the solid foundations we created last year and really establish the Asian Forum in Jordan. As we found out, the Asian market is a hotbed for football business and a region where football plays a central role in social development. We couldn’t ask for a greater host and partner than his HRH Prince Ali and his team and I’m looking forward to returning to Jordan early next year.”
