We are delighted to welcome Supersport International as our official broadcast partner. Supersport International has been instrumental in the growth of the Confex from its origins in 2011 and continues to demonstrate the same support for the 2012 event. Supersport International is the leading sports provider in South Africa and, considering its massive amount of content, the world. It also provides sports coverage in many other African countries.


We also welcome Futsal WorldWide (FWW) as a Corporate Sponsor at the Confex. Based in Barcelona, Futsal Worldwide is working with futsal and football authorities across the globe to help develop this fast-growing sport. The organisation has projects in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East. Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played professionally across the world and is officially recognised by both CAF and FIFA. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.


The Confex gives you the perfect opportunity to hear from leading professionals in the business of football and business marketing.
