He currently appears as a regular guest on Liverpool’s television station LFC and is also an ambassador for Foster Care Associates where he has been fostering children since 2008.

Wright was also the founder of Premier Legends a company which gave people the chance to join a host of former Premiership Players for stadium tours, corporate football tournaments and personal appearances. The company has now ceased trading.

Wright has since teamed up with fellow ex Liverpool striker Michael Owen and launched Red Sports which specialises in the production of Soccer School Education Programmes in China and Coach Education Programmes.

In March 2019, Wright participated in a TV series called ‘Harry’s Heroes’ which saw football manager Harry Redknapp take a number of ex professionals on a journey to lose weight with the end goal of playing a team of ex Germany internationals.

Ironically, England won the game 4-2 – the same scoreline as the 1966 World Cup Final.
