Successful Strategic Business Development Meeting in Düsseldorf 2024

European Leagues Members gathered in person last week, on March 19th, for the annual Strategic Business Development meeting. The event was hosted by the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga in Düsseldorf, Germany, coinciding with the prestigious Sports Innovation 2024.

The Strategic Business Development meeting is designed to support the business and commercial development of member leagues by providing a valuable platform for the exchange of information on key strategic collective business topics where the European Leagues is in a unique position to explore.

During the meeting, league representatives were updated on the ongoing collective business deals, reflected on achievements from the past, and set strategic directions for the future. These discussions, led by the European Leagues Administration, focused on value chains of three strategic business areas: Sports Data management, digital Licensing and international Media.

The meeting also featured insightful presentations from distinguished speakers, including representatives from DFL, FIFPro and DLA Piper.

On the following day, participants were invited to join the Sports Innovation 2024 event, organized by the DFL, where esteemed international speakers showcased the latest technologies and vision for the future of sports.

Once again this year, the Strategic Business Development meeting proved to be a resounding success, highlighting the pivotal role of European Leagues in supporting the business development of Member leagues.

Special thanks to our host, the DFL, for hosting a successful event. Gratitude is also extended to the nearly 50 participants whose contributions made the three days truly remarkable.
