Following the announcement of Russia’s winning bid to host its first FIFA World Cup™ in 2018, Eventica devised a high profile business and networking event to bring together leading figures from football across the globe to major international football hubs.


In 2011, Eventica launched the first World Football Forum in Moscow. Since then, this annual event has become firmly established in the football industry calendar.

Eventica designs and produces the annual WFF, from venue sourcing and programme content to technical production and delivery. The aim of WFF is to give suppliers and service providers a deep understanding of the opportunities in football’s emerging markets, and it is an ideal platform for learning more about the latest trends in and around the global football industry, direct from internationally recognised leaders.

Combining a senior-level business conference and networking forum with a football exhibition and fringe events, WFF is the key event for the key players of the global football industry: the personalities who guide, influence and govern the world’s game.
