Manchester’s association with ‘the beautiful game’ stretches over 100 years’ witnessing not only the creation of the Professional Footballers Association back in 1907, but also the rise of some of our local teams from the playing fields around Manchester to the very top flight of the game on the world stage.
The city’s credentials as a conference destination are equally impressive. The Soccerex Global Convention will take place at Manchester Central in Petersfield – an area of the city which has played host to meetings and public gatherings since the 19th century. More recently, Manchester was voted the third best conference destination in the world by the readers of Conference & Incentive Travel – Europe.
Manchester City Council, Marketing Manchester and, of course, Man Utd and Man City, are delighted to welcome Soccerex to Manchester and look forward to working on what, we’re sure, will become another milestone in the city’s footballing history.
