The BSMA will welcome the only black head coach to lead his team to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Senegal’s Aliou Cisse to Washington, DC on March 16, 2019 from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. Additional guests are yet to be determined, but will join the panelists to be moderated by Chairman and CEO Justin Reid. This summit will serve as a celebration in coaching and managing as we recognize Aliou’s accomplishments. We will also discuss the state of soccer in Africa and Caribbean nations and how we can support the federations in their quest to compete on the international level.

Aliou Cisse has been the head coach of the Senegal National team since 2016. The BSMA will be inviting him to Washington, DC in March 2019 to visit various clubs in the area and for the Coaches’ Summit.
