Anglo-American Cultural Award
The first two-time MLS Golden Boot winner, Bradley Wright-Phillips turned himself into an elite finisher in MLS, and has banked arguably the greatest forward season in MLS history. Wright-Phillips joined the New York Red Bulls halfway through the 2013 season, helping them to the Supporters' Shield, and in his first full season he equaled the league's record for most goals in a single campaign with 27. He currently holds the New York Red Bulls record for most goals scored. Wright-Phillips’ father, Ian Wright MBE—a football legend in his own right—will be joining us to present the award on 29th November at Edison Ballroom.
