The Football Business Awards, taking place on 5th November in the illustrious surroundings of Chelsea Football Club’s home, Stamford Bridge, celebrate those working tirelessly behind the scenes to shape the football industry.
Now in their 4th year, the Awards celebrate the very best of business in football. The fcbusiness CEO of the Year Award is one of the most highly prestigious awards with each winning CEO voted for by their peers.
CEO’s from all Premier League, Football League, Scottish Premiership Football League vote for who they think is the outstanding candidate from their respective league before one of the finalists is, through the judging panel at the Football Business Awards, nominated as the overall fcbusiness CEO of the Year.
Previous winners have included Karren Brady (West Ham United), Paul Barber (Brighton & hove Albion) and Sam Rush (Derby County).
Sponsoring the award for the first time is TopTix Sport, who work extensively in the UK Sports market as a leading supplier of Ticketing and Customer Profiling solutions.
TopTix Sport has been selected as official ticketing partner by a range of Premier League and Football League clubs in recent years including West Bromwich Albion FC, Brighton and Hove Albion FC, Derby County FC, Bristol City FC and Chesterfield FC and the leading edge back office and on-line solutions are providing an excellent platform for clubs to drive ticket sales and offer targeted marketing for increased engagement with fans.
Top Tix Sport Managing Director, Peter Joyce said: “We are delighted to sponsor the CEO of the Year Award for 2015 and to contribute to the celebration of achievements over the past year.
"As a supplier to the football industry we see on a daily basis the work that goes on behind the scenes at a football club and the modern day CEO’s have the task of driving forward so many areas of the football club both on the playing staff and across the operational teams.
"The work is often relentless across the season and each category winner fully deserves their award.”
fcbusiness Editor and FBA judge, Aaron Gourley, said: “The Football Business Awards represent the pinnacle of football business. Football is much more than just 11 players on a pitch. Each club employs a vast number of people across a diverse range of business functions and these awards celebrate the often unseen work that goes on behind the scenes.
“The fcbusiness CEO of the Year reflects the hard work and dedication by the person that has led their club throughout the year to achieve success. But what’s unique about this award is the way it is voted for by the CEO’s themselves.
“However, like the players on the pitch, running a football club is about the combined effort of the business team and the CEOs’ will be the first to admit that they cannot achieve the success they have without them.
“We are very proud to have TopTix Sport on board this year to support this very special award which reflects the hard work and dedication of those running the football clubs we all love.”
