Why Football Speakers Make The Perfect Addition To Conferences

Over the years football has certainly produced a wide range of fascinating personalities who continue to thrill fans even beyond their careers on the pitch. From stars who have won World Cups, to managers who can offer an incredible tactical insight, football speakers always make an impact at conferences.


Here at Champions Football Speakers, we have former Premier League, World Cup and international superstars on our roster who can make an impact at both social and corporate conferences. We have outlined some of the top reasons as to why football speakers make for the perfect addition to any conference.

Draw In The Crowds

John Terry

As the UK’s most popular sport, any conference that has a football speaker on offer is sure to draw in a large audience. Often, even fans of opposition teams are still keen to get up close and personal with a football great, so you may find that your conference all of a sudden becomes extremely popular if you have a football speaker on the bill.

One football speaker who always attracts a vast audience is Chelsea legend, John Terry. Despite spending this season with Championship team Aston Villa, Terry is best known for his 19 years with the Blues where he won five Premier League trophies, five FA Cups, three League Cups and one Champions League. Love him or loathe him, his footballing prowess can not be doubted, and everyone wants to be at a conference if he is in attendance.

Give fascinating Anecdotes

Jamie Carragher

Everyone loves getting a behind the scenes look into the world of football. In the age of social media this has become easier with players often posting images of training and dressing rooms online, however there is nothing quite like hearing these anecdotes and experiences directly from people who were there at the time.

These anecdotes add real value to all conferences and leave audiences wanting more. One football speaker who can delight audiences with his stories from the top is legendary Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher.

Jamie played an integral role in Liverpool’s historic 2005 Champions League victory. The side famously found themselves 3-0 down at halftime to Italian giants AC Milan, before fighting back to draw 3-3 and then win the match on penalties. At his football speaking conferences Jamie can discuss how the side achieved this, and a whole host of stories from the night itself.

Provide Nostalgia

Gary Lineker

For most football fans, they have memories from watching the sport as children that they will never forget. These precious moments can be extremely nostalgic, and so a football speaker from the past is able to remind audiences of these times.

Whether it is remembering famous matches or tournaments from the past, or just looking back on what the game was like in the past, bringing nostalgia to an event is always a hit. One of the stars of England’s best World Cup performances, Gary Lineker OBE, won the Golden Boot at the Mexico World Cup in 1986 and starred at the famous Italia 90 tournament.
