Campus confence focuses on better sport governance


The need for better governance in the sports community will once again come to the forewhen a new sports conference initiative, Campus 2006, takes place in London on 29-30 March.

Campus 2006 has five subject streams which reflect the fundamental building blocks of the sports industry and one of the major opportunities it faces: They are sponsorship, broadcast, events, governance and Asia.

Christine Oughton, Director of the Football Governance Research Centre at Birkbeck College and well-known to last year’s Play the Game delegates, will give the opening speech at the specific governance module (see module programme below).

Campus is a joint initiative by the London-based Sport Business and the Cass Business School The programme allows you to create an individual itinerary and attend and pay for only those modules you find of value.  Each subject specific module runs for approximately three hours including coffee breaks.

You can find much more information about this interesting sports business event at the website of Campus Sport Business.
