As it does every year, the Liga de Fútbol Profesional (LFP), together with its Foundation, is running the Professional Football Club Foundations Meeting. This eighth edition will be attended by practically all the representatives of the foundations of the Liga BBVA and Liga Adelante clubs.
Clemente Villaverde, vice president of the Liga de Fútbol Profesional, was responsible for opening the eighth edition of the Professional Football Club Foundations Meeting, which is organised by the Fundación del Fútbol Profesional and the LFP every year. "This gathering is necessary as a meeting point to lend more significance to the foundations within the activities of the clubs", said Clemente Villaverde.
The event, which is due to run all day, will include various presentations from professionals on Foundations. Thus, José Luis Piñar, a Professor of Administrative Law, will give the first talk on current issues and opinions on foundation reforms. He will be followed by several experts in sports law, who will explain a series of subjects of interest to the Foundations, such as working relationships, taxation, protection of minors, etc.
The meeting will also have two round tables. In the first, Julio González Ronco, Managing Director of the Fundación Real Madrid will oversee a debate on the current situation and the future of foundations in football, while the second will see Germán Robles, Director of the Fundación Atlético de Madrid, run a discussion on the value of branding through foundations.
The goal of this meeting is to create a better understanding of the common issues and needs of football club foundations and to create better relationships between foundations.
