CEO – Atletico de Madrid

Miguel Angel Gil

“Having joined Atlético Madrid as General Manager in 1993, few have as much experience at the top level of the game as Miguel Ángel Gil Marín.

He first joined the club as General Manager in 1993 and was appointed CEO in 2003, overseeing the club’s remarkable progress since, which has culminated in the modern 70,000-seater Wanda Metropolitano stadium, which will be hosting this year’s Summit.

During his tenure, the club has won 10 major honours, and they are the current LaLiga champions having clinched the league title in May this year.

Named ‘Director of the Year’ at the Globe Soccer Awards in 2010 followed by ‘CEO of the Year’ at the Football Business Awards in 2016, Miguel Ángel will inaugurate WFS21 on 22 September. Make sure to take your seat early at the main stage to have the chance to meet and hear from the man behind the success of the champions of Spain!”
