We are proud to announce Adrian Bevington’s participation at the World Football Forum 2017 in Changsha. Adrian is one of world football’s most experienced communications professionals. During 17 years at the English Federation (1997-2014) he was recognisable as the senior spokesperson for the organisation. In 2005 at the age of 33, he became the youngest person ever to be appointed FA Director of Communications in the organisation’s history. He became Managing Director of the England National Team structure in 2010. On leaving the FA, Adrian has established his own Sport & PR consultancy – and is currently independent UK and global consultant to clubs, associations, owners, and sports rights businesses, and his roles include PR and Communications for Star Sixes International Legends Tournament, taking place at the O2 London in July 2017. His unique expertise in the industry will bring a valuable contribution to the forum – we are looking forward to his input!
