'Where football meets business'
Our main objective at the Football Trade Directory is to create an online environment where clubs can meet business and business can meet clubs.
FTD have been trading since 2007 and in that time has established a recognised football brand. It is owned by John Booth, who has extensive experience in football with Preston North End, Stoke City and most recently as consultant director at Port Vale.
We launched our new look, responsive website in early 2014. With increased connectivity, you can now access our site from your mobile, tablet, or PC.
Footballtradedirectory.com and the sister paper annual has consistently attracted support from top names in football, across a whole range of services, including:
Events, E marketing, Consultancy, Mail shots, PR and News
