Join us for a conversation with the Arsenal and Ireland legend.
I’m thrilled to announce the first installment of Extra Time, a new speaking series that brings football personalities to New York for engaging discussions about the sport we love.
Liam Brady started his career with Arsenal at the age of 15 in 1971, and went on to make 235 appearances with the senior team. He was known for his refined technical style, and solidified his place in Arsenal lore as a man who helped propel the club out of its mid-70s slump and win and the 1979 FA Cup.
After leaving the Gunners in 1980, Brady ventured to Italy, where he would win two Serie A titles with Juventus and make more than 50 appearances with Inter Milan.
Brady is equally known for his contributions to Irish football. He earned 74 caps as an Ireland international, and is often cited as one of the country’s greatest-ever players.
When his playing years came to an end, Brady returned to North London. He rejoined Arsenal in 1996 to run the club’s youth academy, where he had an integral role in shaping Arsenal’s emerging talent. In 2014, he stepped down from the club’s youth set up and was named an ambassador of the Arsenal Foundation.
On February 25, after Arsenal faces off against Southampton, I’ll be joined by JJ Devaney (ESPN Caught Offside podcast) and Brady for a wide-ranging discussion about football—past and present—at the Barleycorn. It will be followed by an open Q&A with Liam Brady.
Ticket links are below. Arsenal NYC, Arsenal America, and Arsenal Philadelphia members qualify for member pricing for the event. You can also Join Arsenal NYC, as this is just one of many events we have in the works.
All fans of Liam Brady are welcome and encouraged to attend!
I hope you’ll join us.
