CIES alumni at the 4th RFEF International Congress on Football Law

During a draw held at the CIES Headquarters, seven former CIES students have been selected to attend the 4th International Congress on Football Law. The Congress, organised by the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF) on September 30th and October 1st 2011 at the Ciudad del Fútbol de Las Rozas (Madrid), will touch upon a vast array of important legal issues pertaining to football.

The seven alumni were drawn among many applicants, being current or former students of the FIFA Master and of the FIFA/CIES Programme in Sport Management. They lucky winners are Ashley Ehlert (FIFA Master), Wafeekah Begg (FIFA/CIES Programme), Diederick Dewaele (FIFA Master), Nasr Azzam (FIFA/CIES Programme), Sofiane Cherchali (FIFA/CIES Programme), William Mcauliffe (FIFA Master) and Raul Garcia (FIFA/CIES Programme).

It is worth noting that RFEF, a CIES partner since 2010, generously offers five of the seven free tickets to attend the Congress. Congratulations to the selected applicants! We wish them interesting and fruitful discussions for their professional careers.
