A football business graduate from UCFB is now back at the place she studied, Wembley Stadium, working as an Events Assistant at the Football Association.

Paras Panesar, who studied BA (Hons) Football Business and Finance, works at events at the very top level of elite football.

When asked about her role, she said: “I currently deputise on England’s senior men’s and women’s game, FA Cup finals and the Community Shield.

“For that, I’m in charge of accreditation, team matters in terms of catering, equipment requirements, and I help out on any pre-match entertainment.

“Day-to-day, I work with different departments and groups of people to collate everything so it’s all ready for matchday.”

She added: “Coming to UCFB, learning about the behind-the-scenes of football, all the different routes you can go down, whether it’s media, events, finance, partnerships. There’s so much out there.

“Not many people are aware of what goes on behind the scenes in football, so when you have that knowledge and can use it to your advantage, I think it’s so cool and UCFB is the place to do that.”
