For Startups

More than last year, the FUTURE OF FOOTBALL BUSINESS Conference 2019 will focus on startups. We don't just want to jump on a hype, we think that startups can provide valuable contributions and impulses for the further development of the sports and football business. Giving them more space at a conference for innovation and digitisation was therefore very important to us.

This year, startups have the opportunity to present themselves at the conference. There are several possibilities, ranging from a conference ticket to exhibition space and participation in the Football Innovation Award and Startup Pitch.

Startup Ticket

The special Startup-Ticket for the conference costs permanently 150 Euro (plus VAT) and is available on request.

Startup Exhibition

For startups we offer a special startup exhibition package. This includes two tickets for the conference, the listing as exhibitor on as well as a small exhibition spot with a counter, space for a roll-up and power supply.

Football Innovation Award

In the Startup Award, a jury of international experts selects the five most exciting companies from the applicants. The finalists can present themselves in short pitches on the main stage during the award ceremony at the conference. Those five finalists are also getting VIP tickets for the conference.

The winner will receive various media services from FOOTBALL BUSINESS INSIDE and partners as well as the opportunity for an exclusive pitch at the Austrian tipico Bundesliga. The complete package will be announced in May.
