Message from Tony Sharkey the owner of the Football Transfer Forum:

"Following on from the successful Football Transfer Forums held at Middlesbrough FC in April 2017, and Leeds United FC in April 2018, we are heading across the M62 to Manchester for the 3rd edition.The City is a true northern powerhouse with terrific transport links and a concentration of top football clubs close by.

We are delighted with the way the Football Transfer Forum has grown and developed over the last few years. I believe one of the strengths of the event is its' speakers, noted industry experts (listed above) who have provided some really interesting and valuable insight. We also try really hard to get the balance right between Club Representatives, Football Agents and people from football-related Companies.

We have included something new, Club to Club networking, in this years Forum. However, the key aims of the event remain the same - insightful speakers, a good blend of top companies and genuine networking opportunities in a non-pressurized and professional environment.

With the summer transfer window just around the corner, the Football Transfer Forum is the most cost-effective and enjoyable way for real football people to do business."
