Ahead of the Webinar, Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, CEO of SIGA and Chairman & CEO of SIGA AMERICA, stated:

Covid-19 and the killing of George Floyd are changing the world with resounding impact. We must listen to the people and what they are saying, everywhere, in the most unequivocal terms. They are saying enough is enough. They want action. They want justice, respect and equal opportunities. They want a society that lives up to our civilisational values and ideals. They want to see change. Real change. Long-overdue cultural change. And they want it now.

The next SIGA-Soccerex Webinar will discuss these issues from Sport’s angle, and what must be done to ensure “Football for All”. We invite everyone to come on board and participate.”
