Legends

Soccerex is the chance to meet with some of the biggest names in the soccer industry, and what would that industry be without our players? Soccerex events have always had legends as a presence, from acting as a speaker on a panel to talk about their experiences both in the game and after, to walking around the exhibition floor and speaking to the exhibitors. These are some of the legends that have attended our events from 1996-2018!
