Us fans got our man in Slaven Bilic and he has brought in some great players this season. On his day, Dimitri Payet would get into any side – plus he is a real crowd pleaser.

It’s also a great platform to showcase the great work that my team is doing within sponsorship. It’s a good opportunity to network too – last year I was lucky enough to catch up with a lot of familiar faces.What will you be discussing on your panel session?I’ll be discussing how sponsorship can be used as an effective vehicle for increased brand exposure and growth. In such a competitive industry, challenger brands can use sponsorship as a catalyst for accelerated growth on a global scale. I’ll be discussing how we have used our assets to smash our KPIs – paying particular attention to the UK.What are you most excited about ahead of the conference?Having seen the line-up, I’m particularly looking forward to the content marketing and football discussion. This is an area that is integral to our club partnerships and we have a few really engaging pieces coming out soon, so it would be good to get some insight and a few pointers from the experts.______________________To learn more about club partnerships and activation post Euro 2016, register for Betting on Football!The conference is on Thursday 21st April at Stamford Bridge, and tickets are available for just £400 (+VAT).
