Pioneering conference to power on women’s football in Russia
The pioneering conference comes only two months before the country hosts the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, ahead of next year’s World Cup, to shift part of the tournament’s exposure toward the women’s game.
The ‘Girl Power’ conference, the first major event of this kind in modern Russian history, will be split int three panels. The first will focus on the development and increasing popularity of women’s football, followed by a session on the growing influence and presence of women in football leadership positions. The conference will end after a session on the opportunities in women’s football as a business.
