Bill Manning - President

Bill Manning was named President of Toronto FC on October 12, 2015. Under his direction, TFC promptly put together the two best seasons in club history, both on and off the field. During his first two full seasons as President, Manning oversaw an organization that won the 2017 MLS Cup, the 2017 MLS Supporters Shield with a league-record 69 regular season points, the 2016 and 2017 MLS Eastern Conference Championships and the 2016 and 2017 Canadian Championships. In addition, Manning also represents Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment as Co-Chair for the World Cup 2026 Toronto Bid Advisory Group and as President of the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

Manning joined Toronto FC after spending the previous eight seasons as President of Real Salt Lake (RSL) and Rio Tinto Stadium. During his time with RSL, Manning helped to transform the club into a consistent winner—RSL won the 2009 MLS Cup championship—and a model franchise off the pitch, where both season tickets and sponsorships more than tripled during his tenure. The club also won the Eastern Conference title (2009), the Western Conference title (2013) and were CONCACAF Champions League runners-up (2011), U.S. Open Cup runners-up (2013) and MLS Cup runners-up (2013). Manning was the recipient of the Major League Soccer Doug Hamilton Executive of the Year award in both 2012 and 2014. While at RSL, Manning sold naming rights to Rio Tinto Stadium which successfully opened in fall of 2008, and in 2013 negotiated the 10-year LifeVantage jersey partnership for the club.

Manning's experience in sports management spans 25 years. In addition to his work in Major League Soccer, Manning has held executive positions with the National Football League's Philadelphia Eagles and the National Basketball Association's Houston Rockets.

A native of Massapequa, New York, Manning was a nationally-recognized collegiate soccer player at the University of Bridgeport where, as a senior in 1986 Manning led his team to a NCAA final four appearance while earning first-team All-America honors. Manning continued his playing career after college and advanced to two U.S. Open Cup finals with the Brooklyn Italians, winning the title in 1991. He also played professionally in the United Soccer League (USL) with the Penn-Jersey Spirit (1991), the Valley Golden Eagles (1993) and New York Fever (1994-95). Manning also earned a U.S. Soccer National "A" Coaching License in 2001. In March 2018 Manning will be 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 and General Manager and was named 2000 MLS Executive of the Year by the Washington Post.

After the Mutiny, Manning left the sport of soccer to serve as Director of Corporate Partnerships for the NBA's Houston Rockets from 2003-04 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 where as Vice President of Sales and Service he managed all corporate partnerships and premium seating from 2004-08, overseeing revenue growth of over 50 percent during his tenure.

Manning received his Bachelor of Science degree (1987) and Masters in Business Administration (1989) from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut where he was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 2006 and received the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2016.

Manning and his wife, Jennifer, reside in King City with their sons John and Will.

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.
