Mr Al Sorour is a worldwide businessman and entrepreneur with a reputation for identifying performance potential in growth focused businesses.

As Director of Newcastle Football Club since their acquisition in 2021, Al Sorour took the team from close to relegation in the English Premier League to one of the top 5 teams, working closely with the entire organisation from the outset to build what is now one of the most valuable franchises in the EPL.
