Toronto FC announced Tuesday that the club has promoted Corey Wray to assistant general manager, team operations and strategy. Wray previously served as the Club’s director of team operations.
“We are very pleased to announce Corey’s promotion. Corey has experienced a lot during his time with the club and has grown into a promising young executive,” said Toronto FC Sr. Vice-President, Soccer Operations and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “I’m excited to continue to work alongside Corey as we continue to build this club both professionally and at the grassroots level.”
Wray, 32, will focus on player recruitment and athlete relations along Toronto FC’s complete player pathway. In addition, he will continue to work on player contracts, player movement and budget for Toronto FC II and Toronto FC III.
In his previous role, Wray assisted in the development and creation of Toronto FC II, along with Toronto FC’s scouting and analytics departments. He also helped launch the Regional Identification Development Centre (RIDC) program working in partnership with affiliate clubs across the province and the Toronto FC Juniors program.
Wray originally joined Toronto FC as an intern during the club’s inaugural 2007 season. From there, he spent one season working in the game operations department before moving into team operations in January 2008 and has remained for ten seasons.
Wray, a native of Mississauga, ON graduated from Brock University with an honours degree in Sport Management in June 2007.
