Friedkins to Doha engaged in Eca, business and World Cup

A few days in Qatar, between pleasure and work. Always with an eye on the business and the future of their companies, first of all Rome given the scope of current commitments. Dan Friedkin is in Doha these days for business and a bit of fun, like yesterday when he attended first the meeting of the ECA, then he followed the resounding defeat of Brazil against Croatia, and Argentina of Messi (and Dybala) committed against Holland. The president of Roma has allowed himself a bit of fun in these important days of the World Cup, the quarter-finals that did not want to get lost at the stadium taking the opportunity of the short distance between the game facilities and the company of some members of the ECA that had seen a few hours earlier in the meeting organized in Doha. One of them, his friend and host Nasser Al Khelaifi, president of the ECA and a great protagonist both in the meeting between the leaders of the Association of European clubs, and in the quarter-finals. The patron of Paris Saint Germain has witnessed the challenges of his champions in his club (primarily Neymar and Messi, tomorrow Mbappé and not only), having among the guests also Dan and Ryan Friedkin. The link between the two presidents is strong and has been consolidated over the past year, thanks to the tough stance of Roma against the Superleague and the synergy that has been created between the two clubs and consolidated with the transfer of Wijnaldum to the Giallorosso.

The Friedkin have therefore attended yesterday’s matches and today they will be at the stadium also for Morocco-Portugal and England-France. In short, a full immersion of football but also to have new contacts between the top of football policy and business. In addition to the confrontation with Al Khelaifi and colleagues on the Superleague issue and the news about Juventus, the Giallorossi patron took the opportunity of the World Cup for new contacts with high profile sponsors, expand the Roma brand and foster relations with new companies and football properties. In short, if the heart of football is now in Doha, it was impossible for the Friedkins not to be there. To enjoy the show but also to continue the work on Roma. Ten days ago Ryan Friedkin was in Japan with the team to work on the Asian market and find new sponsors, the new commercial director will continue this path to increase revenues (waiting for the new stadium in Pietralata) and help Roma grow economically.
