President Sandro Rosell is leading a delegation from the Club at the Aspire4Sport international congress dealing with the sports industry at the spectacular Dome Aspire in Doha, Qatar.

The President will speak at the conference on 15th, alongside top figures such as Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Frank Williams, founder and manager of the Williams Formula 1 team, ex-professionals such as Fabio Cannavaro and Damon Hill and coaches like Marcello Lippi and Luis Aragonés. Following Sandro Rosell, Andoni Zubizarreta and the Director of the Masia Carles Folguera will also speak, explaining the key features of the Barça model.

A day before Sandro Rosell addresses the conference, Vice-President Javier Faus will take part in a debate about the connection between international sponsorship and the world of sport.

Aspire4Sport is the only event of its type, completely dedicated to the Sporting World, in the Middle East. This is the second edition of the event and last year brought together more than 3,000 business professionals from the sporting world.

Meeting with the Qatar Foundation

As well as participating on the Aspire4Sport event, the Club delegation will be taking part in a regular meeting with representatives from the Qatar Foundation to oversee the agreements between the two institutions. The delegation will also attend the international game between Brazil and Egypt to be played on 14th November at the Al Rayyann Stadium in Doha, in which the Barça players Dani Alves and Adriano Correia are expected to figure.
