On behalf of Football Collective member, Dr Christos Anagnostopoulos, we are pleased to share details on the forthcoming Sport & EU conference. The conference is a sport based conference, but will feature football throughout. For the first time ever, the Association for the Study of Sport and the European Union (Sport&EU) moves to Scandinavia for its 12th Annual Conference, which will be hosted on 29 and 30 June 2017 by the Faculty of Business Administration and Social Sciences in Molde University College, Norway.
The conference will take place under our usual two-day format, starting in the morning of the 29th and finishing in the afternoon of the 30th. The organisers are already working hard to put together an attractive academic and social program that might feature (if the fixture list is kind to us) a game of the local team, FC Molde. The organisers are also working very hard to be able to offer very attractive packages of registration and accomodation for the conference. Information will be made public in due course.
Oskar Solenes, the chair of the local organising committee looks forward to meeting Sport & EU delegates: “We are really happy to have the opportunity to organise the first Sport&EU conference in Norway. Molde is a beautiful city in the fiords and we are sure delegates will find it attractive. We have really good facilities in a compact environment, which will make attending the conference very easy. We are honoured to be given the opportunity and I really hope to see all of you in Molde next summer”.
The conference will run from Thursday 29 June through Friday 30 June
Conference venue: Molde University College – Specialized University in Logistics
