Karren Brady Set For Portsmouth FC Business Club Brunch

Mon 14th Jul 2014 | Football Industry Events

Karren Brady, West Ham Vice-Chairman, will be speaking at Portsmouth FC’s Business Club Brunch meeting on Thursday, July 17 Fratton Park. 

The former Chief Executive of Birmingham City FC, and well-known TV personality, will attend the Pompey Business Club Brunch as part of her visit to Portsmouth as Conservative Party Small Business Ambassador, and is eager to view the work that the Football Club is doing in the business community.

Express FM presenter Dan Windle will conduct an informal interview with a Portsmouth FC panel of guests to include; Chairman Iain McInnes, CEO Mark Catlin, First Team Manager Andy Awford and Ashley Brown, Chairman of the Pompey Trust.

The interview will focus on the club’s continuing development, both on and off the field, with a special focus on the Tifosy Fan Funding project to raise funds for two new Academy pitches at the new training facility.

This innovative campaign – the first of its kind involving a professional football club in England – has already raised £125,000, more than half way towards the target figure of £250,000. 

Director of Community Projects Clare Martin and Sponsorship Sales Manager Anna Mitchell will then take to the stage to talk about the work they are doing with the local business community, and the importance of the community based projects.

Clare is leading the city’s bid for Portsmouth to become England’s City of Football and she will be updating the meeting on progress to date.

Chief Executive Mark Catlin said: “It’s fantastic news that Karren is taking the time to come to Fratton Park and see for herself the excellent work that the club is doing, both in regards of promoting business links within Portsmouth and the work generally being done in the community.”

Anna Mitchell, the club’s sponsorship sales manager added: “The launch of the business club initiative is a way to engage with the business community and become the hub of the business community in the south.

“We are honoured that Karren has recognised the work we are doing and she is a terrific ambassador for business who I am sure will have some inspiring things to say.”

Tickets are priced at £15 incl VAT and will need to be purchased online at https://tickets.portsmouthfc.co.uk/Online/ (Please note that you will need to book each person as separate transactions in order for us to record details of each attendee)
