Bradley Pritchard - Founder

Bradley finished his higher education at Loughborough University with Undergraduate and Masters Degrees in English & Sports Science, and Sports Science respectively. A few years later, he undertook a part-time Law degree while competing in the Championship for Charlton Athletic.

Pritchard called time on professional football to gain legal experience. He joined Mishcon de Reya’s Immigration department, leaving in the spring of 2017 to establish The Sporting Way. He is also part of the FA judical panel and works regularly with a range of media outlets such as Talksport. 

Bradley’s journey has been profiled in several media features, most recently in the popular fly-on-the-wall Sky Sports documentary ‘Out of Contract’. 


"In my experience, there are few things better than the buzz of playing professional sport in front of thousands of people every week. Not only did I have the privilege to do something that I loved, but I had the opportunity to make people happy, even if only for those 90 minutes on a Saturday afternoon."

"However, being able to make a difference to people on a larger scale by educating and inspiring others to follow their dreams, as I followed mine, just can't be matched."
