He stepped down from his role in February last year after criticism from pundits and fans regarding the European Super League debacle.

Woodward has now landed a role as a non-executive director at an Esports company.

Estars is an award-winning educational Esports business founded in 2017.

They have hosted hundreds of events worldwide from the United Kingdom to Abu Dhabi.

Ex-Premier League goalkeeper, now Norwich star Tim Krul is on their board.

Woodward said to the Estars website: “When you put together Esports, education and a dynamic region such as the Middle East, where curriculum decisions can be made faster than Europe, it is a recipe for success.

“Joining the team is an easy decision when you add the exceptional leadership and entrepreneurial energy.

“I’m excited about EStars delivering a path of learning for the next generation in the new industry of Esports.”


Woodward was first involved with Man Utd in 2005, advising Malcolm Glazer during their takeover of the club.

Two years later, the investment banker then landed a job in charge of commercial and media operations.

After long-term CEO David Gill quit United, Woodward took over his position.

He has since been replaced by Richard Arnold.
