LONDON, 29th January 2018
Today 21st Club entered into an agreement with former Southampton, Manchester City, and Sunderland Executive Simon Wilson, to collaborate on shared interests. Wilson brings with him 17 years of front line experience across the full spectrum of football club operations, and has been credited with significant roles in the development of Manchester City and the City Football Group.
21st Club CEO, Blake Wooster, said “Simon has been someone in the industry that always felt like a natural fit to the ethos and spirit of 21st Club and I’m delighted to have him with us as for at least the next few months. Over the years we have had some really exciting discussions about 21st Club and future opportunities. The timing is good right now for us both to build these out and see what we can come up with to benefit the 21st club and our wider community”.
Wilson said “I’ve admired from afar the work of Blake and his team since 21st Club launched 4 years ago. Their energy is infectious, and I know from being on the other side how much they are valued by the community within the game. I’m looking forward to collaborating to help serve the needs of clubs and the community in even more impactful ways”.
