Karen Carney MBE

Add To Speakers List

One of the greatest English footballers in the history of the women’s game, Karen Carney has gone from midfield maestro to commanding centre stage on the after-dinner circuit. From winning countless medals for both club and country, Karen, who played a staggering 144 times for England, is now one of the most recognisable football speakers in the industry.

Growing up in Birmingham, Karen was football mad from an early age. When hired as a football speaker, she’s able to outline the difficulties she faced growing up when football was still perceived as a man’s sport. Despite this, she never let her dreams of making it hold her back and came through the academy at her local team – Birmingham City. Karen had two spells with the Blues, guiding them to FA Cup victory in 2012. As well as Birmingham, she also played for Arsenal and Chelsea and spent a year in the USA playing for Chicago Red Stars. In total, Karen’s medal haul includes three league titles, five FA Cups, the UEFA Women’s Cup and more. At all of her speaking events, Karen can discuss her life at the very top of women’s football, charting how she’s seen it grow and develop into a nationwide phenomenon in recent years.

On the international stage, Karen also excelled, making her debut in 2005 and really bursting onto the scene at the Women’s European Championships that were hosted in the UK. She quickly became a regular presence in England squads, well-known for her trickery on the ball and goal threat. In total, she played at seven major tournaments for England and even represented Team GB at the London Olympics in 2012.

Since hanging up her boots, Karen has become well-known for her expert punditry on both men and women’s football, providing her views on Sky Sports, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime. Each weekend she can be found casting her eyes over the latest action as a pundit and commentator. This role has seen her presence grow like ever before, and with it, she’s gained acclaim from all corners. Despite this success, she’s unfortunately also experienced the darker side of social media, suffering from sexist abuse. At her speaking events, Karen can discuss how she’s handled these difficult moments, inspiring young girls and women everywhere to ignore the haters and fulfil their dreams.

Women’s football in the UK has grown exponentially in recent years, particularly due to the emergence of the WSL. There are not many football speakers who can speak with as much passion, expertise and charisma as Karen Carney, so make sure you don’t miss out and book her for your event today!
