Testimonials

«"A highly topical subject, addressed by top speakers from different angles, professionally organized, with a moderator who skillfully put his guests (instead of himself) in the spotlight. Overall, a colorful mix of information and entertainment, a highly interesting day at the Letzigrund!" »

Roger Hegi, Direktor Sport-Toto-Gesellschaft, Basel
 
  «Yet another enriching event. It's great to see how the congress has evolved to a top event over the years. The speakers and the contents were high class - Chapeau!»

Jolanda van de Graaf, Head External Relations Axpo, Zurich
«A highly diversified congress day. The presentations were top notch - and all of that at the "Letzigrund". This way, even an empty football stadium becomes somewhat appealing»

Roman Wespe, Trustee, Schmerikon SG
 
  «Joseph Blatter’s frank words were surprising. They should be shown to his critics. Also the other speakers were top notch. One of the highlights was certainly provided by professor Peter Sloterdijk. His comprehensive knowledge is impressive. A very informative and interesting day.»

Dr. iur. Georg Pfister, Appeal Court Judge, Zurich
«A very professionally organized congress. As to the content, it was above all the openness of FIFA with regard to a new, public culture of arguing, which - besides the trips into the field of (sports) philosophy - was positively surprising.»

Philipp Klotz, Member of the Board of Managers, SPONSORs Verlags GmbH, Hamburg
 
  «The excellently composed program of this year’s EWS Congress did not only provide solid information and an update on recent developments involving sports betting but also induced the participants, through intelligent and atmospheric lectures which broadened one’s horizons, to personally concern themselves with the subject of ethics and morale in sports.»

Ilja Kaenzig, Football Manager
«The highest value of sports is its integrity. The latter is increasingly endangered by manipulations, corruption and racism. Accordingly, this congress was all the more important, since it pointed out key problems and possible solutions. The core messages of this comprehensive and diverting event were that sport needs to pursue a zero-tolerance policy as well as to cooperate with the states and their law enforcement authorities and that preventive measures need to be applied on a global basis.»

Prof. Dr. iur. Martin Nolte, Head of the Department for Sports Law, Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln
