INTERNATIONAL FÚTBOL NEGOTIATION COMPETITION
The Tulane International Fútbol Negotiation Competition is a simulated contract negotiation competition using real-life international soccer/fútbol clubs and players in hypothetical scenarios. The competition features two types of negotiation scenarios: Buying Club v. Selling Club, and Club v. Player, with the former modeled off of the international player transfer market. In order to simulate an actual negotiation, the participants receive a set of confidential objectives that serve as guidelines for the negotiation. This competition provides participants with the opportunity to sharpen their negotiation skills as well as their knowledge of industry contracts.
Soccer/Fútbol industry experts serve as judges for each negotiation and competitors will also submit a written component before the negotiations and will participate in a virtual presentation round.
