Ash Rahman

Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Ash embarked on his journey with PTSA in 2006, fueled by a determined mission to create opportunities for exceptionally gifted young footballers in London. His aim was to provide them with a stage to showcase their talents within the professional football realm. He envisioned the establishment of an environment where the most promising players could hone their skills, enhance their understanding of the game, and ultimately evolve into professional footballers. The tangible success stories of numerous individuals now competing in the upper echelons of English football, including the Premier League, English Football League Championship, and League One and Two, such as Arthur Okonkwo, Calvin Bassey, Abo Eisa, Christian Saydee, Christian Joseph-Forino, Mo Eisa, and many others, bear testimony to the fulfillment of this vision.

With almost three decades of experience in community youth and sports development and management, Ash's influence extends not only throughout the UK but also on the international stage. He has initiated and executed a diverse array of projects in Europe, Asia, and South America.

Additionally, Ash has garnered an extensive understanding of management and sports media, with his work receiving recognition from prominent media outlets like the BBC and ITV. His contributions have facilitated meetings with several high-profile figures, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair and the late Queen Elizabeth.

More than 25 years after embarking on his path as a community youth and sports trainee, Ash's unwavering passion and commitment to assisting young Londoners in realizing their aspirations remain steadfast across a multitude of platforms. This dedication is intrinsically woven into the ethos of PTSA.
