Add To Speakers List

Ian Stringer is a popular football commentator who is best known for his association with Leicester City. For over a decade he covered some of the club’s biggest and most momentous achievements and has gained national wide acclaim for his work. Now, he works for the national radio station Talksport, covering football across the country.

Alongside his exceptional football commentary, Ian has also become a leading event host, overseeing occasions of all types at venues throughout the UK. His broadcasting ability transcends the world of sport, and Ian is capable of hosting award ceremonies, Q&As and a wide range of other events. No matter what type of engagement you want to put on, Ian’s versatility, charisma and naturally likeable personality always make him a hit – which can directly impact the success of your occasion.

Ian’s first venture into the public eye was as a contestant on the business reality series The Apprentice in 2008. Despite being fired by Lord Sugar, he didn’t let this setback get him down. Instead, he went on to become BBC Radio Leicester’s lead football commentator covering the club he supported all his life – Leicester City.

In this role, he covered huge events in the club’s history. This included the highs of earning promotion to the Premier League in 2014 and arguably the greatest moment in Premier League history when they won the title in 2016. As well as this, he covered the tragic death of the club’s owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a helicopter crash outside the club’s stadium in 2018. Ian fronted coverage of the event and the subsequent funeral in Thailand.

Now, Ian can be found working for Talksport’s extensive football coverage, heading up and down the country to report on matches at all levels.

An accomplished event host, Ian is a consummate professional who will always ensure your occasion achieves the success it deserves. To find out more, contact Evolve Talent & Speakers today.
