Gathering at Soccerex Welcome to Rio de Janeiro! "I am sure that the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil will provide a trigger for long-term and sustained social, cultural and educational development and that the power of our game will have a positive impact on the Brazilian society." President Blatter

Dear alumni member, We trust this letter finds you well.
 
 For this year´s gathering, we have decided to do something new and special. FIFA Master has joined forces with Football Industry MBA (FIMBA).
 
 The gathering will happen during Soccerex Global Convention, in the same venue where the event will take place. That´s without mentioning the beautiful scenery of Copacabana beach! A combined gathering will allow us to further exchange experiences with fellow executives that have studied sports administration.
 
 Mid-way throughout the day we will listen one of the top names of the industry, and this all to be followed by an incredible match at Joao Havelange Stadium, built for the Pan-American Games!
