Commenting on the event announcement, Soccerex COO, Rita Revie said, “I am so thrilled to be bringing Soccerex back to the US. We held a forum in Los Angeles nearly 20 years ago alongside the FIFA Women’s World Cup and to now be returning to a country that has experienced such growth in its soccer market is fantastic for Soccerex. I want to thank General American Capital Partners and the London Football Exchange for making this possible and I look forward to working with them and the whole soccer community, in making Soccerex USA an important milestone for soccer in the Americas.”
