Irarragorri, who recently received recognition by Leaders as one of the top 300 business leaders in the world for the seventh time, commented on the opportunity ahead in Madrid:

"It's important, as leaders in the industry of football, that we have the oppotunity find ways to work together to promote the good for the sport, share best practices, and learn from one another. At both of Orlegi Sports' football teams - Santos Laguna and TM Futbol Club - we have sought ways to do this for many years, and have gained a great deal as a result; “an example of this are invaluable relationships we have cultivated among other clubs and organizations from different parts of the world.”

Together we can carry the industry farther, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to share our experiences and gain valuable insight from others on the global football stage at this year's World Football Summit."
