Panel discussion: Second home or just passing through?

The FIFA World Football Museum invites you to the next edition of the popular ANPFIFF panel discussion as part of the "The Six Football Continents" cultural programme. From 19:30 on Wednesday, 13 September 2017, former Swiss national player Hakan Yakin and veteran manager and former coach of the Cameroon, Thailand and Jamaica national teams Winfried Schäfer from Germany, will discuss the topic:

Second home or just passing through?

After a long summer of transfer rumours and vast amounts of money changing hands, this event to be held in the "Rainbow" area of the museum will provide a refreshing look at another side of the football business.

How does it feel to join a new club? How quickly do players feel at home in their new environment? Why do so many choose to take the leap to move to a new country and, often, an unfamiliar culture? What reasons might there be, apart from the obvious career progression and sporting ones, to take such a step?

The panel discussion, moderated by Emmanuel Bucher, will take place in German and last around one hour with time for questions from the audience at the end. Entry is free.
