He will also work with the Plus.Fan team and help support the work of promoting the Carrick Rangers Football Club.      

“As someone who initially became involved with the Fan Owned Club organization as a fan owner investor, I am excited to serve in this new role and to continue to build out a unique insider experience for fans.  This is an amazing opportunity, especially as a huge soccer fan and youth coach myself.  I am excited to see where the future takes us,” said Doyle.

Fan Owned Club’s founder and CEO, Steve Paris said “Our goal is to provide opportunities to our partners while giving fans a unique behind the curtain view of Club operations.  Kevin has provided a ton of value already in the last year, and his knowledge and experience will be tremendous assets as we grow.”
