Paul White – Business Development


Paul joined the team in June 2018, having relocated from London.

Previously Paul’s background within football saw him working  as the Commercial Manager for Welling United FC, before moving into the Teamwear side of  football with JAKO. This gives him an extensive background of the industry from both sides of the coin.

Despite his links to Non League football Paul is in fact a Chelsea supporter (adding in before they were a wealthy team).

Paul Foster – Group Sales Manager


Paul has a wealth of experience within the football industry having played and managed at semi-pro level. Paul manages the sales team at fcbusiness and has an in-depth knowledge of the industry and has recently gained access to funding and grants to improve facilities at his club.  This has proved to be a valuable tool when working with business to get the best from their marketing budget.


A Newcastle United fan for his sins, hopefully one day he may see them actually win something.
