Club owners face the ultimate challenge. Win games, build a business and balance the books. Add into the mixture fervent supporter scrutiny and intense competition and it becomes an almost impossible task. In this exclusive session at Leaders in Football taking place over 9th and 10th October, we talk to Bruce Buck on running a football club in turbulent economic times and balancing business with football expectations.
Buck is the man who headed Roman Abramovich’s £140 million acquisition of Chelsea back in 2003. During his chairmanship of Chelsea, the club has enjoyed the most successful period in history with the winning of three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
Buck joins Greg Dyke, Chairman, The Football Association; Andrea Agnelli, President, Juventus FC; Gavin Patterson, Chief Executive, BT; Hugh Robertson, Minister for Sport and Tourism, UK Government; Decio De Maria Serrano, President, Liga MX; Unal Aysal, Chairman, Galatasaray S.K.; Sunil Gulati, FIFA Executive Committee Member and President, US Soccer Federation and Peter Siemsen, President, Fluminense FC. 1,000 senior decision-makers linked to Clubs, Leagues, Associations, Federations and Brands will be in attendance over the two days making it a unique and high level networking environment.
The 6th edition of the event is shaping up to be the best yet with a host of world figures about to be announced as speakers and attendees. With space so limited, delegates are advised to register early to avoid disappointment.
