Bill Manning - President

Bill Manning was named President of Toronto FC on October 12, 2015. Under his direction, TFC has experienced historic success, both on and off the field. During his six seasons as President, Manning has overseen an organization that won the 2017 MLS Cup, the 2017 MLS Supporters' Shield, the 2016, 2017 and 2019 MLS Eastern Conference Championships as well as the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Canadian Championships.

Manning also earned a U.S. Soccer National “A” Coaching License in 2001. In March 2018 Manning was honored in his home state for his accomplishments in the game at the 6th annual New York City Soccer Gala.

While still playing in the USL, Manning began his career in sports management, working in the front office of the Continental Indoor Soccer League in 1993 and for the New York Fever in 1994-95. After his last season as a player, he went on to leadership roles in the USL with the Long Island Rough Riders and the Minnesota Thunder, where he was named USL Executive of the Year in 1999 following a championship season. Manning got his start in MLS in 2000 with the Tampa Bay Mutiny as President & General Manager and was named 2000 MLS Executive of the Year by the Washington Post.

In 2003 Manning left the sport of soccer to serve as Director of Corporate Partnerships for the NBA’s Houston Rockets and was part of the staff that opened the state-of-the-art Toyota Center. Manning would then move on to the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles whereas Vice President of Sales & Service he managed all corporate partnerships and premium seating from 2004-08, overseeing revenue growth of over 50% during his tenure.

Bob Bradley - Head Coach & Sporting Director

Bob Bradley was named the club’s head coach and sporting director on November 24, 2021. Bradley, 63, a three-time MLS Coach of the Year, becomes the 12th head coach in TFC history.

Bradley brings over 20 years of head coaching experience to Toronto. In addition to his work as a club coach, Bradley has coached both the United States and Egyptian national teams. Canada will mark the sixth country where Bradley has served in a head coaching role.

Bradley joins TFC with the third-most regular season wins (182) in league history and has led teams to an MLS Cup (1998 Chicago Fire), an MLS Supporters’ Shield (2019 Los Angeles FC) and two US Open Cup (1998 and 2000 Chicago Fire) titles during his years in the league.

In the international game, Bradley had a 43-25-12 record as the head coach of the U.S. National Team from 2006-2011 and a record of 22-8-6 as the head coach of Egypt from 2011-2013. The New Jersey native led the U.S. to the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup title and qualified the US for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where they won their group ahead of England, Slovenia and Algeria, before bowing out in the Round of 16 to Ghana. Bradley also led the US to the final of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa, where they were defeated 3-2 by Brazil. It remains the only appearance by the US men’s team in a FIFA sanctioned final. As the coach of Egypt, Bradley’s Pharaohs had a perfect 6-0-0 record in the first stage of African World Cup qualifying for Brazil 2014 but were ultimately eliminated by Ghana in a two-game aggregate.

Bradley’s club coaching resume also includes three stops in Europe, having coached Stabæk in Norway’s Eliteserien (2014-15), Le Havre in France’s Ligue 2 (2015-16), and Swansea City of the English Premier League (2016), where he became the first American to manage a Premier League club.
