The participants had the opportunity to hear Sergei Makarov (president of the PFL), Anna Radko (marketing director of the organisation ‘Standard’), Andrey Burlakov (media director of FC Shaktar), Evgeny Dontsov (president of ‘Standard’) and SD Europe’s Loukas Anastasiadis presenting on the topics of interaction and communication between clubs and supporters and the benefits of supporter ownership and structured involvement in the decision-making process.
