Ian Cummins

Technical Director

  • Date Joined: 20th October 2017
My name is Ian Cummins, and I am currently the Technical Director of a soccer club in Canada.

I have previously held positions in England at Millwall FC and Chelsea FC, and have done coaching observation in France with SM Caen, Le Havre, PSG and with French Football Federation coaches.

I returned to Canada for a project to help build and grow a program for a club I had played for as a kid. After two successful years in Canada, I am looking to return to Europe and professional football.

My current role as Technical Director has me overseeing the 750+ players in our competitive program, from u7 - u18, both male and female.

I develop the curriculum for the entire club, coaching education for all the coaches, head coach for our elite teams, u18 boys, and u18 girls.

I currently hold a UEFA B Licence (English FA), UEFA B Goalkeeper Licence (English FA), FA Youth Award (modules 1,2, and 3), Canadian National B Licence, Canadian National Children’s Licence. Upon my return to Europe, I will be continuing my UEFA qualifications.

I have coached several players that have gone on to sign professional contracts in both Europe and North America have represented their countries at the international level and have played in World Cups, and played in The Olympics games (winning a bronze medal).

I am born in Ireland, hold duel citizenship with Canadian and EU passports. I have a National Insurance Number (NiNo), allowing me to work in England.
