Aspire, the academy of sporting excellence, will stage a virtual, worldwide summit this week, entitled, “Aspire Academy Global Summit on Football Performance and Science” which will virtually bring together football experts from all over the world in Doha on 5 November. The 2020 summit will be the first to be conducted remotely due to the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The event will feature a quartet of selected experts from around the globe and from different sports, selected by Aspire. Topics to be covered will be centred on real-world experiences by people from different fields, who will recount their own stories and expertise with the hope of introducing new concepts and enhancing experiences in each of the given fields.

Apart from experts from representatives from 50 of the world’s top clubs and football federations, others who will be taking part in the virtual summit will include local participants from the Aspire Academy, Aspetar, Qatar Stars League coaching staff and technical staff from Qatar’s national football teams.

Other attendees who will be logging onto the summit include representatives from Liverpool FC, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur (England), Paris Saint-Germain (France), Juventus, AS Roma , AC Milan (Italy), FC Barcelona, Real Madrid (Spain), Ajax (Netherlands), Benfica, Porto FC (Portugal), Boca Juniors, River Plate (Argentina), Esperance Sportive de Tunis, (Tunisia) and K.A.S Eupen (Belgium). Major League Soccer (America) as well as members of Football Associations and Federations from England, France, Italy, South Korea, Argentina and Mexico will also be joining in online.

Following the 15-minute seminar sessions, there will be a presentation about a research survey recently conducted by members of the “Aspire in the World Fellows” before rounding off with a workshop session in which attendees will split into groups of 12-15 to take part in parallel open debates and discussions based on material from the day’s four seminars.

It is worth noting that over the last five years, some of the world’s leading youth football coaches and most influential international figures in world football have come together at various different locations such as Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, London and Doha for the “Aspire in the World Fellows” summit.
