The match between 🇺🇦 Ukraine and 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿England for the UEFA EURO 2024 Qualifiers marked the debut of Football Business Journal in the role of media at a football match.

September 7-9 were fantastic days working during this event:

• Thursday 07.09.23: I spent the entire day with the Ukrainian national team, observing their training and conducting an interview 🎤 with their Media Officer, Mr. Oleksandr Glyvynskyi. The interview will soon be published in Football Business Journal under the title "10 Away Games. The insights of the Ukrainian National Team during UEFA Euro 2024 Qualifiers."

• Friday 08.09.23: Media Day. For the first time, I participated in 🎥 press conferences featuring such players as Oleksandr Zinchenko (Ukraine, Arsenal) and Harry Kane (England, FC Bayern Munich). I asked my first ever question at a press conference, and it was to none other than Harry Kane—a wonderful experience!

• Saturday 09.09.23: ⚽️ The match ended in a 1:1 draw. It was a great networking opportunity, having leading journalists from both Ukraine and England in one place, who were very open to sharing their views.

This experience serves as a significant catalyst for the development of the Football Business Journal project!

🤝 My sincere thanks to the Ukrainian Association of Football and Tarczyński Arena Wrocław for the opportunity!
