Final Third clients include national governing bodies, sponsors, professional clubs, individual players and organizations, including The English Football League and the Professional Referees

“This partnership is a natural progression for both
companies and our joint resources will provide an increased range of services to our clients in North America and the U.K.” said Michael Preston, who will
act as director of communications for Final Third North America. “We are excited to work with Final Third, particularly in the thriving U.S. soccer market, and to explore opportunities within
traditional American sports that can benefit from this relationship.”
Preston's consulting firm ran the PR operations of the NASL from January 2013 to April 2014. It has also worked
extensively in American football.
