Chris Hall

Lecturer in Journalism




College of Arts, Humanities and Education





I am an experienced social media manager with 14 years working in football, sports and entertainment. I look forward to passing on the knowledge I have gleaned from my years of experience to my students.


Experience in industry

I spent 8 years running the social media for West Bromwich Albion Football Club as well as playing an integral role in their communications team. This was followed by 5 years at The Football Association where I ran the social media and customer engagement teams for Wembley Stadium. I have since worked in Digital Marketing for both Virgin Bet and BHSF.

In the media

I ran and fronted the West Bromwich Albion YouTube channel throughout my time at the club as well as doing match day commentaries.

My work on social media is also readily available as I ran the West Bromwich Albion social media channels throughout my tenure there and the Wembley Stadium channels for 5 years.
