MIP 3 participants took part in the last session of the programme at the beginning of September in the North of England. After coping with 3 very disrupted years due to the COVID-19 pandemic during which they experienced considerable upheaval (sessions postponed, zoom sessions, bubble sessions, etc.), this final meeting was organised in Manchester and Liverpool from 5 to 9 September.
Co-directed by Christophe LEPETIT (CDES) and Stéphane EHRHART (UEFA Academy), the session dealt with two main issues: stadium and operations management and responsibilities of a sporting director.
Hosted in some of the most beautiful and iconic venues of Manchester (Old Trafford, AON Training Complex, Etihad Stadium) and Liverpool (Anfield), many experts coming from the sporting industry shared their insights and knowledge during these five days. The participants also had the possibility to shadow a stadium manager around a UEFA Europa League game between Manchester United and Real Sociedad.
After this last session – and a very busy year of 2022 – MIP 3 participants will have a final celebration at their graduation ceremony, early November, in Nyon.
