Alan Brazil

Football After Dinner Speaker

Alan Brazil After Dinner Speaker

 A former Scottish International footballer, Alan Brazil amassed 13 appearances up front for his National team. Born 15th June 1959 in Glasgow, Brazil’s career began with Ipswich Town in 1977. During his time with Ipswich he scored 80 goals within 210 appearances, before being loaned out to American team Detroit Express, and later returning to be part of the 1980-81 UEFA cup winning Ipswich squad. Alan’s diverse and extensive career makes him a highly regarded football speaker for events and conferences in a mulititude of both business and lifestyle sectors.



Brazil’s footballing exploits took him to some of the biggest names within England football, including stints with Tottenham Hotspur (where he again won the UEFA cup in the 1983-84 season) and Manchester United. His anecdotal tales of top-flight football tranlsate well into valuable advice for any audience, Alan’s well structured and insightful speeches always make him a well recieved and acclaimed sports speaker. He left British football in 1988 to join the Australian football league and ply his trade with Wollongong City (now known as South Coast Wolves), before finishing his career off in Europe with Swiss team FC Baden. Persistent injury caused him to retire in 1989.


The height of his International playing career was during selection for the 1982 World Cup finals held in Spain, where he was the youngest member of the squad. However through early retirement due to injury, and the quality of the forwards competing for Scotland at that time, including Kenny Dalglish, Paul Sturrock and Andy Gray, his appearances for the national side were limited.


After retirement from competitive football, Brazil undertook a role with Sky Sports in the 1990s as a co-commentator, as well as a regular pundit on Soccer Saturday as well as joining talkSPORT in 2001. A great after dinner speaker, Alan interacts with audiences in a charming and charismatic style that is sure to be a hit with anyone listening.

His experiences as an International footballer and history within sports commentary make him the perfect football speaker for events. Alan’s many professional sporting experiences ensures he has plenty of wealth and knowledge to share at your event as an after dinner speaker.
