Doha, 9 October 2019. After three exciting days with many highlights for the delegates representing 50 of the world's best football clubs and federations, the 5th edition of the "Aspire Academy Global Summit" on Football Performance and Science concluded on Wednesday evening in Aspire's Football Performance Center.
“It is with much delight that l bring to a close what has been an intensive, but productive summit at which we chose to gather just the 50 full members of Aspire Fellows Community. We covered substantial ground on the three topics and its doesn’t stop here, but members will upload supporting presentations from their clubs on our platform, which currently boasts over 260 presentations. This means a continuation of the sharing and learning from each other goes on beyond the summit,” said Professor Valter Di Salvo, Aspire Academy’s Director of Football Performance and Science.
He concluded with what he called a personal wish for the Aspire Fellows. “I would like us as a community to consider how we can give back to the less fortunate in our world and l think something in line and connection with education would be ideal. It’s something that l would like to propose for us as a community to think through as a possible building on from our successes over the years.”
Ali Salem Afifa, Chairman of the Aspire Academy Global Summit, had the final words of the event in which he thanked all the people involved in this year’s event. “I hope all of you enjoyed this edition of the event the same way I did and I hope that all of you take home good memories from these three days in Doha.”
