Kelly Simmons, OBE - World leader in football, columnist and ex-Director of Women’s Professional Game for the Football Association (FA)

With over 30 year-experience in the industry, until 2023 Kelly was the Director of the Women’s Professional Game for the Football Association. Leading the transformation of the women’s professional game in England, including the transition of the Women’s Super League (WSL) into a fully professional league, Kelly also secured record sponsorship and media deals.

Prior to this Kelly was Director of Men’s and Women’s Development for The FA, overseeing the delivery of a £200M four year plan for children’s and grassroots football.

As well as being a Women in Football NED, Kelly now consults on behalf of FIFA, Portas, Run Communications and Premiership Women’s Rugby.

Kelly also has a regular column in the Guardian looking at current issues in the game.
