Book Ian Wright

After Dinner Speaker

We are a booking agent for Ian Wright and can organise for Ian Wright to speak at your event, sharing his football wisdom. Ian Wright is a former professional player who was Arsenal’s second-highest scorer of all time. Since retiring from the game Ian Wright has earned an MBE and is a radio and television personality, working a studio pundit for both ITV Sport and BBC Sport.

Achieving Ambitions
Ian Wright was born to Jamaican Immigrants and was brought up predominately by his mother and an unkind stepfather who drove him to think of football as his only escape. This turbulent childhood sparked a determination in Ian Wright, further encouraged by a teacher who he says helped to shape his life called Mr. Pigden. Pursuing a footballing career was a tough journey for Ian Wright but it finally paid off when he was spotted by a Crystal Palace scout. He impressed at the trial and signed with the club in 1985. It was not long before he was proving his worth on the pitch, quickly becoming Palace’s second-highest scorer and forming an illustrious partnership with fellow player Mark Bright that helped the club climb back to the top flight via the playoffs.
