Andy Townsend

Where is Andy Townsend now?

After winding down his career with West Bromwich Albion, Andy Townsend was forced into retirement in 2000 due to a recurrent knee injury.

Although he was offered a coaching job by Gary Megson at West Bromwich Albion, Townsend turned down the offer so that he could pursue a media career.

After more than a decade as a prominent figure in ITV’s football coverage and co-commentator for ITV’s coverage of the Champion’s League and the FA Cup, Townsend left the channel in 2015.

He does still work as a pundit and a co-commentator for other domestic and international channels including BT Sport and has recently returned to ITV for the occasional game.

Townsend also owns a promotions business called Andy Townsend Promotions which encompasses his media work.

He has also featured as a commentator on a number of EA Sports titles including the FIFA series of games.
