Richard Scudamore

Chief executive the Premier League

Richard Scudamore has held the post of chief executive of the Premier League since November 1999. It was his father who ignited his love of sport generally and football specifically. According to Scudamore, “he also instilled in me...the notion that independence does not exist: we all need others to achieve the most basic tasks and that hurdles are just things to overcome.” Whilst Scudamore may not be the talent scoring the goals or creating the drama, he commands the League’s broadcasts to around 212 territories and 643 million homes. Scudamore is also a founding member of the Football Foundation, a grass-roots football charity that receives over £200m in Premier League contributions. Scudamore is one of the most influential sports administrators in Britain.
