The former Arsenal manager will attend with his close friend, David Dein.
Since leaving Arsenal in the summer, Wenger has kept a relatively low profile and seems to be enjoying his time out of the game, a break he certainly earned.
That being said, his name continues to be linked with some of the biggest names in football with Bayern Munich the latest club in trouble said to be ready to call on him once again.
The award ceremony recognises, “companies and individuals shaping the future of sport. With an international focus, the Awards will bring the world of sport together for a night to remember at the iconic Natural History Museum during Leaders Week London in October.”
Arsenal’s Vinai Venkatesham is one of 67 judges listed for the main awards which include categories such as Content Creation, Innovation, Live Experience, On Screen Experience and Sponsorship. Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Nike, WWE, the ATP, NBA and many others are among those on the shortlists.
Wenger was also given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the London Football Awards in 2015.
