Admission Price: Free entry
Speaker: Professor Stefan Szymanski
We are delighted to invite all City alumni currently living in Spain to a masterclass and reception in Madrid.
The event will begin with the masterclass by Professor Stefan Szymanski, Professor of Economics, on "Financial Fairplay and Spanish Football." In this masterclass, Professor Szymanski will explore the implications of financial fairplay for the game:
UEFA's financial fairplay regulations are intended to "introduce more discipline and rationality in club football finances". The new rules will require clubs participating in UEFA competitions to spend within the limits of their football income. The penalty for failure to comply could result in exclusion from the Champions League. How will this affect the big Spanish clubs? Will this lead to a reshaping of the football landscape?
The masterclass will be followed by a drinks reception, providing a fantastic opportunity for you to catch up and network with other alumni from City University London and Cass Business School.
6.00 - 6.30pm: Registration
6.30 - 7.30pm: Master Class by Professor Szymanski
7.30 - 9pm: Networking over drinks and canapés
