As such, Michael has been responsible for over 300 events globally from London to Sydney; Los Angeles to Dubai. Michael has enjoyed a long and eventful career in sport, including delivering sponsorship programs, selling TV rights, negotiating player transfers, sourcing coach & executive appointments and he has a black book of global contacts.

Outside of football, Michael enjoys running on Brighton seafront, socialising, music concerts and spending time with his family.

Boyd Butler

Boyd Butler has worked in football for 30 years with an impressive career in sports business, marketing, and event management.
He started marketing sports magazines, taking Match Magazine to become the World’s biggest selling football weekly.
Headhunted in 1998 by Sir John Madejski, he headed up the Commercial and Marketing team for the new Madejski Stadium, home to Reading Football Club. Known for taking the club from “portakabin to the Premier League” he successfully turned Reading into a thriving, commercially-sound, successful club.
His experience of working with brands, leagues, football, rugby and music promoters has been defined by dedication and a profound commitment to making a lasting impact. These are the qualities he seeks in candidates.
Living in Reading, he’s often to be found either on the Thames paddleboarding, or the banks of the River Kennet angling for the elusive barbel.
