Article comments

The English Football Association (FA) Group have appointed Andrew Crean as CFO.

In a statement, the FA said, Crean will take up the position from April. He will succeed Mark Donnelly, who is leaving to become the chief operating officer at Premier League football club Queen’s Park Rangers.

Crean joins the FA in its 150th anniversary year from the Jockey Club, UK horseracing's largest commercial group which runs the Cheltenham, Aintree, Epsom Downs and Newmarket racecourses among other facilities.

He will be entrusted with increasing financial stability across the group, Wembley Stadium’s improved trading position, with 30 major events planned this year alone, and financial management of England’s national football centre St. George’s Park. He will also be responsible for the HR, IT and legal departments.

Commenting on the appointment, FA general secretary Alex Horne said, “I am delighted to welcome Andrew Crean to the FA. It is an extremely exciting time for the organisation with plenty going on across all levels of the game. Our notable 150th anniversary is being used to highlight the £100 million we reinvest into football every year and our commitment to the grassroots. Andrew’s work will help us to further this important area of focus.”

“I am confident he will be able to add his considerable experience and expertise to the financial performance of the Group, including the strong risk and business management processes we have in place,” Horne added.
