Jon Sellins

Appointed 14/03/2023 until 13/03/2026

Jon Sellins has been involved in running large venues and major events for over 35 years.

His career began in earnest in 1987 when he joined Wembley PLC, the former owners of the old Wembley Stadium, Arena and Conference Centre.

He spent almost 10 years at the Wembley Complex working across all the venues and learning about major sporting events, large concerts, exhibitions and conferences.

Since then, his career has encompassed the Millennium Dome, Earls Court and Olympia, the London 2012 Olympics, Tottenham Hotspur, Wembley Stadium (again), some muddy obstacle races around the world and latterly The Roundhouse in Camden.

Between June 2017 and June 2020, Jon was Group Operations Director at The Football Association where he was responsible for the operation of both Wembley Stadium and The National Football Centre at St George’s Park.

His time with the London Olympics and more recently the FA, has provided him with a thorough understanding of the governance structures in sport and in particular football.

As both a venue operator and a fan, Jon is passionate about venue safety.
