Throughout the professional career, Edvinas Eimontas, an economist by training, occupied several different roles at the Lithuanian Football Federation (LFF) between 2001 and 2016 – he started as a project manager, deepened his knowledge of sports by following a study programme at the the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), and later was elected as President of LFF. Currently Edvinas Eimontas lectures about sports industry at the Lithuanian Sports University, is a Partner in Sports Policy Institute, and holds other positions in organisations, dealing with sports industry in Lithuania.
Even though Edvinas Eimontas may seem as an example of a passionate football enthusiast alone, he has challenged himself to broaden his scope of interests in eSports – a different area, but not that distant from the essence of sports. According to the specialist, “Instead of fighting eSports, we have to embrace it!”, and during his speech at TEDxKaunas 2018 you will able to find the reasons why.
Don’t miss an opportunity to attend this year’s TEDxKaunas in the main auditorium of Vytautas Magnum University (VDU).
