A very brief history
Phoenix Sport & Media Group was founded in early 2016 by a very talented group of former footballers who enjoyed extremely long and successful careers in the Premier League. Between them they have won the Champions League, FA Cup, Premier League and played for England. Many of our founders have also gone onto successful careers in the media, as football managers and as coaches.
They established Phoenix Sport & Media Group prompted by a desire to make professional advice in the sports and media sectors “cleaner and more accountable” and to help stop the financial exploitation of sports and media stars.
To the enormous credit of our founders, they have succeeded in designing an ethical company that is making an incredibly positive difference to the lives of many families in the sports and media industries. I am extremely proud to have been asked to join this company and help it grow further.
The Phoenix Way – Trust, Honesty & Integrity
These three, simple words actually represent everything Phoenix Sport & Media Group are about and how we do things. It articulates a rare ethos that runs right through the company from top to bottom and encapsulates what sets us apart from many other companies.
