5th AIAF Congress, Kiev 2017 - Pictures



The 5th AIAF Congress, held on September 18th and 19th, 2017, in Kiev, was dedicated to the hot-debated and nevertheless gripping topic of Minors in Football.

This event attracted many football stakeholders and football lawyers from all over the world and thanks to the active participation of all participants; this event was a remarkable success.

AIAF member Yuliya Morozova, with the great support of the Football Federation of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Bar Association and the Morris Group Law Office, warmly welcomed all AIAF members and exterior speakers and delegates in the Ukrainian capital.

Discussions were structured around the three main themes detailed in the program:
•    Education & Training of Minors;
•    Minors Working as Football Players;
•    Mobility of Minors in Football.

The moderators – Daniel Cravo, David Casserly and Marcos Motta – brilliantly conducted the discussions in a dynamic way. The different matters gave rise to many interesting debates between guest speakers and the audience. Of course, we want to thank our guest speakers: Raffaele Poli from CIES, Igor Gryshchenko from FFU, Andrey Kharitonchuk from FC Shakhtar, Renaud Duchêne from RCS Anderlecht, Daan De Jong from ECA, Alexandra Gomez from FIFPro, Marikyan Kliuchkovski from FFU, Kimberly Morris from FIFA TMS and our colleague Paolo Torchetti. 

A real interaction was thus possible with all the delegates, and especially AIAF members who had the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience, to participate and debate in the round tables, but also with the other participants who did not hesitate to give their personal point of view.  

The AIAF Congress led to a consensus, pointed out the significant challenges, good practices and tried to imagine possible innovations. As always, the AIAF will soon publish recommendations aiming to improve the system, in particular the Regulations related to Minors in Football.


In short, and in conclusion, thank you and see you in September 2018 in Lausanne for the 6th AIAF Congress!
