Joao Frigerio is an Entrepreneur, Consultant and Creative Problem-Solver working in Sport.
He was born and raised in Brazil, where he studied journalism. In 2004, he moved to Europe to study in the FIFA Master, and soon after that started a career in sports, having worked for FIFA, Sportcal, and then starting his own consultancy business, JF Sports Consulting.
In 2017 he launched the iWorkinSport Job Fair, the first truly international career fair focused in the sports industry. The event brings together graduates from some of the best sports management programmes in the world and recruiters from top sports organisations, such as FIFA, UEFA, the International Olympic Committee, FIBA, adidas, Puma, Juventus FC, Manchester City FC and many others.
The business has evolved and, in addition to the traditional job fair, the company also offers digital events – namely the Virtual Job Fair and the Education Virtual Expo, which promotes sports management programmes to prospective students.
Joao also serves as the Executive Director of the FIFA Master Alumni Association, an organisation that comprises more than 600 sports professionals worldwide.
