The State of Football – Opportunities post Covid-19

9th July 2020

Presented by Gianluca Vialli and Fausto Zanetton, founders of Tifosy Capital and Advisory.

Ocean Wall will be hosting former professional footballer and coach, Gianluca Vialli, and ex-GS and MS TMT banker Fausto Zanetton. Vialli and Zanetton founded Tifosy Capital & Advisory (, a leading sports advisory and capital solutions firm based in London.

Although the primary leagues in most countries have restarted, the financial implications of Covid-19 will continue to have a significant impact on football in years to come. Football has always been underserved by traditional lending sources, but now the game could be reshaped for the better and there will be many investment opportunities. Vialli and Zanetton will talk about the major trends, including M&A and financing opportunities in football that have been accelerated by the Covid-19 crisis. The event will last an hour including any questions on the financial aspect of the game.

This presentation is at 11am BST and will be on the Zoom platform.
