Gary Ireland Founder & Managing Director​​



Having experienced nearly every facet of soccer professionally over the past few decades as players, coaches, administrators, agents & managers, and at every level from youth to professional and international, our group formed Soccerbook Consulting in 2013 to enable us to better share the benefit of our knowledge and expertise and serve the soccer community. 

Soccerbook's goal is to share our knowledge and help connect the soccer community so that people and organizations can better accomplish their goals and benefit from and for the game. Our Team consists of full time professionals who have had a lifetime of experience and dedication to soccer and we are fully committed to helping our clients and meeting their needs.

We have represented, recruited, placed, advised, partnered with, and associated with various international associations, national federations, professional and semi-pro clubs, leagues and teams, youth leagues, clubs and teams, and colleges and universities over the past two decades. We have a close to 100% success rate with creating opportunities, and matching clients with appropriate organizations, clubs and teams.
