The Football Innovation Summit 2020 has been postponed until Wednesday September 2 and Thursday September 3 due to the ongoing concerns regarding the worldwide outbreak of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our speakers, delegates and partners and we believe this to be the most appropriate course of action. We will continue to monitor the situation in the hope we can host the 2020 Football Innovation SUmmit in September with the originally planned agenda. If you have any questions, or are an existing delegate who hasn’t heard from us, please contact info@open-innovation-group.com
