Celebrity Trader

What is Celebrity Trader?

About Brad Friedel

Born in the American Midwest, Brad was the perfect choice for this edition of Celebrity Trader, which has a distinctly international flavour.
After signing for Liverpool on a permanent basis in 1997, Brad has spent most of his professional career between the sticks representing top-flight clubs in England, including Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa and Spurs.
He represented the USA a staggering 82 times before retiring from international football in 2005, making him one of America’s top footballing exports.
More recently Brad has started a new life as a football pundit, giving his expert views on the 2014 World Cup for British and Irish TV.

Brad's charity

Based in North London, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation seeks to improve the lives of local people through a shared love of the beautiful game. Working with schools, community groups and others, the Foundation supports people of all ages in providing education, training and sporting opportunities with a special emphasis on community cohesion.
Since its establishment in 2006, more than two million life-changing events have been provided by the Foundation both at home and abroad, helping more young and disadvantaged people to realise their full potential.

About Celebrity Trader

Every month we challenge a celebrity to take on the task of trading the financial markets.

Our celeb traders will have to learn to speculate on price levels across major global markets to try to net a profit and avoid losing face with their fellow celebrities.

We’ve given each celebrity an initial balance of £2,500 in their account and they’ll be attempting to raise money for their charity of choice.

With competitors from the diverse worlds of sport, news, business, music and TV, it’s hard to guess who’ll come out on top!
