Soccerex Insight tools, such as the newsletter Soccerexpert and all social media platforms, will now carry various forms of PR, news, and updates from the LFP, as they provide ongoing messages to the global football business audience.
The LFP will be assisting Soccerex in strengthening their relationships with clubs in France, whilst providing introductions to necessary partners and sponsors where applicable.
Soccerex will also be providing the LFP with a full consultancy service for the league and its member clubs, whenever they require guidance or advice on suppliers or services, so it really is a partnership in every sense of the word.

We are really excited at the prospect of working with them across various business areas and look forward to seeing them in person at a Soccerex event very soon!”
The Ligue de Football Professionnel’s Deputy CEO Mathieu Ficot said “We are delighted about this new partnership with Soccerex. The professionalism of the teams and the quality of the events they deliver make Soccerex among the top conventions in the sport business. This partnership fits perfectly with our international development strategy to grow Ligue 1 Uber Eats brand among sports professionals and to create new business opportunities with them”.
