National Executive Director
Ian McMahon joined AYSO in October 2014 after most recently serving as CEO of Hong Kong Sevens/Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU), the National Governing Body of Hong Kong rugby. The Hong Kong Sevens is the largest tournament of its kind in the world.
Prior to embracing the challenge of working in rugby, Ian spent more than 20 years as a successful CEO, president and general manager of various soccer organizations in Europe and the U.S., each of which he led to record growth.
Ian’s background in soccer and business leadership is extensive. He’s a native of the Manchester area of England and was scouted as a schoolboy soccer player, starting his career with Manchester City’s youth team. Ultimately he played professionally for his home town club of Oldham Athletic and then transferred to Rochdale FC where he played over 100 games by the age of 21 and captained the team.
A knee injury ended his playing career and upon his retirement he moved into sports administration and coaching, where at the age of 26 he became the youngest general manager/chief executive of a professional sports team.
He has had more than 20 years as a successful CEO, president and general manager in Europe and the U.S. He was recruited to come to America in 2001 as CEO of the Des Moines Menace of the United Soccer League (USL) and helped establish the Menace Academy, a youth program based on the successful youth models of Europe.
He then established a youth soccer club in Holland, Mich. where he reached an agreement with the Chicago Fire of the MLS to be their youth program in the west Michigan area. He has also coached extensively at all levels in the USA.
