The event is open to the public so prospective applicants to Birkbeck’s Sport Management programmes from Istanbul are welcome to attend.

Birkbeck College Department of Management is linked to Kadir Has University through a European Union Erasmus teaching exchange agreement. Kadir Has University’s Sport Studies Research Centre is one of Turkey’s leading academic centres for the study of sport business and governance and hence a natural choice of partner for Birkbeck Sport Business Centre.

Turkey is one of Europe’s leading sport business systems – the 2013 Deloitte Annual Review of Football Finance  indicated that Turkey’s football Super League has the seventh highest annual revenue of Europe’s elite footbal leagues at Euros 444m.

The event is a latest in a series of such events co-organised by Birkbeck and Kadir Has over recent years reflecting the successful long-term collaboration between the two universities’ sport business research centres.
