“We created the Talking Sport series at the height of the pandemic because we felt that this was a moment where the sports business industry needed to come together and share insights and solutions for the future,” explained Luis Vicente. “As live sport returns around the world and we begin to re-build, we’re delighted to be partnering with our friends at iSportconnect for a new series of Talking Sport. We will be inviting more innovators and leaders onto the show to discuss the lessons learned during Covid-19 and look at the steps we can take to come through this time in as strong a position as possible.”

Sree Varma, CEO of iSportconnect, added: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Eleven Sports to continue the fantastic work started by Eleven Sports and World Football Summit so far with Talking Sport. People are always looking for the inside track on the sports industry but, at such a unique time such as this, there is more to discuss than ever. Sport has continually adapted over the years in order to thrive and grow and it must continue that process now.
