Africa’s premier football business event, the Football Africa Forum (FAF) primarily focuses its discussions on all the major aspects of game inclusive of player welfare, coaching, marketing and sponsorship, fan engagement, football agents, improving leagues and clubs structures; etc.
The Forum aims to become Africa’s biggest football stakeholder and knowledge sharing platform to debate the future of football on the continent.
It will feature a “Football Player Session”, where matters pertaining to the welfare of football players will top the agenda in discussion between, leagues, clubs, players, unions, land football agents.
The Forum will also focus on the aspect of financial support and pension schemes as well as investment opportunities for all stakeholders inclusive of their commercial empowerment in football business.
The Forum will also host the “Elite Coaches Panel Discussion” allowing the continent’s best minds to debate the future trends of coaching as well as their role to advance the technical ability of African players and the competitiveness of our teams on the international stage.
The African Football Intermediaries Association (AFIA) country Chapter meeting is also held during the Forum with the main objective to build its membership of football agents across the continent.
A national Chapter of AFIA will be established and agents are encouraged to build the AFIA as a unified voice for their industry in their country and to take up issues on their behalf. Agents are called upon to serve on the various working and sub-committees of AFIA.
Agents are also encouraged to work through their colleagues in other countries to make it easier to introduce their players to clubs in those markets.
