‘Thinking Football’ in November 2022

Liga Portugal will premiere the Thinking Football Summit in Porto, the last major sporting event to be held in Europe before the World Cup in Qatar.

Liga Portugal will host the "Thinking Football Summit" between November 18th and 20th, 2022, an event that will be held for the first time in Portugal and Porto. For three days, the Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota will breathe football, in a summit that is intended to become a reference and one of the best in European Football.

This international gathering aims to welcome some of the best national and international figures in the world of football, thus helping to promote a better understanding and visibility of this industry. Thinking, promoting and growing will be the main objectives of this event, which is expected to be very successful for Portuguese Professional Football.

The "Thinking Football Summit" will thus be the flagship of football, where debates will revolve around the major themes of this sport that generates so much passion across the world. Hence, Liga Portugal intends to open this event to the public, also having a more recreational approach, with several moments dedicated to eSports, as well as leisure activities and other initiatives that will generate engagement with all football fans.

In addition to these important aspects, both in terms of discussion and entertainment, the Thinking Football Summit will also be a unique space to foster the emergence of new businesses, with specific areas created for this purpose. This way, Liga Portugal is developing a concept to enhance their introduction in the market by creating new opportunities for those who intend to be represented therein.

As a matter of fact, the "Thinking Football Summit" will be the last major sporting event to take place in Europe before the Qatar World Cup, which will be held between November 21st and December 18th, 2022, so all eyes will be on this summit that promises to "Create Talent." The kick-off to the World Cup will be given in Porto by a whole range of football-industry specialists.


“We want to debate the football industry”

The ‘Thinking Football’ is the ideal place to discuss the business side of the football industry. That will be the basis of this event, as it can be seen by the profile of the panels and speakers we want to invite, from various parts of the world. At the ‘Thinking Football Summit’ there will also be room - and plenty of it - for our fans to experience the fun side of Football. Basically, we want this ‘Thinking Football Summit’ to bring together several Liga Portugal projects, from a business perspective, as well as strengthen our ties with partners, stakeholders, and other entities, such as the FPF, ANTF and APAF. This will be a great event and we count on the participation of all those who love Football.
