Danish Football Conference 2020

Want to be our next speaker?

Since the summer 2018, we have hosted three conferences, in the summer 2018, the summer 2019 and in the winter 2019.

We have 27 different speakers, coming from clubs such as: Newcastle United, Blackburn FC, VVV Venlo, RB Leipzig, Malmø FF, Vitesse, Stoke City, Rapid Wien, Hansa Rostock, Sabail FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bodø Glimt, Manchester City, QPR, Burnley FC, STVV, Leicester City, Stoke City, Mol Fehervar and Club Brugge.

We have also had the pleasure of having speakers from federations such as: The English FA, the Lithuanian FA and the Dutch FA – KNVB.

Originally we planned to host our 4th Danish Football Conference on the 11th and 12th of December 2020 at Brøndby Stadium, but having the current Covid-19 situation in mind, we have decided to modify the conference in 2020. Meaning that we will not host a live conference, instead we are planing to host an online football conference over three days, the 11th, the 12th and the 13th of December.

We will aim having three theme days:

11th of December: “Scouting, Recruitment and Analysis Conference”

Program from 16.00 – 21.00 CPH/DK Time


12th of December: “Coaches Conference” 

Program from 9.30 – 18.00 CPH/DK Time


13th of December: “Management and Leaders Conference”

Program from 9.30 – 18.00 CPH/DK Time


All presentations will be 60 minutes events, with the speaker giving a 45-50 minutes presentation and then answering questions for 10-15 minutes.

All presentations given at this online conference, will be delivered on Microsoft Teams Platform, tickets for individual presentations or, 11th/12th/13th pass or full access pass, can be purchased on the website of the conference, www.danishfootballconference.com or on our webshop.

For delegates attending on a full access pass, we will deliver a panel discussion at the end of each day, following up on the presentations given during the day and potentially giving delegates the chance to network online, among the delegates.


What are we looking for in our expert speakers?

We are looking for expert speakers, working in football clubs or federations on professional level, with the areas of:

Scouting & Recruitment

Performance analysis


GK Coaching

Specific, Individual coaching


Sports Psychology

Academy and/or Senior Management

Club Management

Club Operations

The expert speakers should have an aim of sharing club story/history and background, ideas, working methods, thoughts on his / her’s area of expertise. We ask of all our speakers to draw a line to our headline of our conferences, “The Future of Youth Development”, to make sure, that we try to be ahead of the development that are to come.


This year, the setup is different and it is difficult for us to give our speakers the same experience as speakers in 2018 and 2019, coming to Copenhagen, staying in hotel, being at the conference at Brøndby stadium, delivering in front of motivated football people, from around the world and networking among the speakers, building long lasting contacts for the future.

This year we provide our expert speakers with full access to all previous expert speakers presentations given at our previous conferences and we provide our speakers with full access to all presentations, that is to be given at this 2020 Danish Football Conference. Both online while given and after the conference, where all presentations will be put in our online “Community”.

All our Expert Speakers, will be invited to join 1-2 online “Expert Speaker Gatherings” before the conference take place, to talk about the conference, the presentations and about general football development.
