The FA to showcase 150th anniversary at Soccerex European Forum

The English Football Association, in short called 'The FA' is currently celebrating its 150th anniversary and this week at the Soccerex European Forum in Manchester it will showcase itself and its work.

The FA was formed in 1863 and it is the oldest football association in the world, responsible for overseeing all aspects of the amateur and professional game in England.

FA Chairman David Bernstein and England Manager Roy Hodgson will lead The FA delegation, which will see the opening address at the two-day conference being given by Club England Managing Director Adrian Bevington, while as part of its year-long celebration of a century and a half of organised football, The FA will be playing a major role by hosting a special FA150 Lounge across both days.

Adrian Bevington said, "Soccerex is a major event in the global football calendar and we are delighted The FA has been asked to play a prominent role in the 2013 European Forum in this our 150th year."

"In particular, it will be a valuable opportunity for The FA to talk about our wider grassroots work as part of the FA150 programme. As well as providing prominent contributions to a number of the sessions, we will also be able to put our world-class facilities at Wembley and St. George’s Park in the spotlight once again."

"Soccerex attracts delegates from across the world and we know from our experience in Rio last year just how positive the event can be for promoting The FA and English football in general."
