Beyond Sport Summit Kicks Off In Philly With Panel On How Soccer Can Drive Change
Published September 9, 2013
WHAT LIES AHEAD: As the summit shifts away from the soccer pitch, so the focus of the event broadens to topics as varied as children’s fitness, nutrition and safety, inner city sports programs and how to best attract investment. Speakers include NBA Commissioner David Stern, former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell, execs from the NFL, NBA and NHL and a host of public service groups. The event includes a reception tomorrow with Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter hosted by the Eagles, 76ers, Phillies and MLS Union -- the first time, organizers say, the city’s professional teams have collaborated on a single event -- and culminates with the Beyond Sport Awards on Wednesday night.
