BBC Sport presenter Mark Chapman has joined National League club Altrincham as a Director, as per recently-filed documents at Companies House.
Boasting an illustrious career in the media, Chapman has worked on some of the biggest sporting events, including the Olympic Games, the World Cup and the Super Bowl.
Dubbed as the ‘Voice of Sport’, the 48-year-old broadcaster grew up in Manchester and is now believed to be on the list of directors at fifth-tier Altrincham.
The Match of the Day 2 host does hold the qualifications for the role, having qualified as a sporting director after completing the Master of Sport Directorship at Manchester Metropolitan University.
It comes after a summer of change at Altrincham, with the Robins having recently turned full-time professional club, following a history as a part-time side.
While excitement builds off the pitch, Altrincham have struggled on it so far this season, with Phil Parkinson’s side yet to win a match.
Altrincham will look to put that right on Saturday when they take on Wealdstone at Moss Lane.
