The event will once again examine the biggest threats to the safety, security and integrity of sport and unite high-profile decision-makers, law enforcement officials and senior policy makers from the U.S. and around the world.

Ahead of his on-stage interview at Securing Sport 2015, Gulati said:

"In my role as President of U.S. Soccer Federation, I’ve come to see that, in many ways, professional-level sports – especially soccer – have faced challenges as they grow in popularity.

"But despite these challenges, there are a lot of lessons to be learned and sport organizations at all levels have an unprecedented opportunity to have international social and cultural impact, as well as steering the future of sport itself. It’s so important to have this conversation, and I look forward to joining the International Centre for Sport Security to discuss these issues and many more on November 4."
