Football House Plus


Tony Rallis is a football person. With over 20 years experience in all things football, in particular Australian football. 

Tony Rallis' introduction to football was as a freelance journalist in 1988 before joining forces with former National Soccer League Club, Sydney Olympic in 1998.

During this time, he was part of the management structure that was instrumental in privatising the Club under chairman, Mr. Nick Politis. It was during his time at Sydney Olympic FC that he initiated a marketing agenda which included successfully securing former Liverpool FC and Wales great, Ian Rush to a guest stint with Sydney Olympic.

Many years later, it was Ian Rush who encouraged Tony Rallis to enter in the football management business.

In 2005, Tony Ralllis resolved a six month dispute between Socceroo, Ahmad Elrich and his then club, Buscan I'Park FC, resulting in Elrich's transfer to English Premier League Club, Fulham FC.

Apart from Elrich, Rallis has ocerseen the transfers of Former Socceroo, Mile Sterjovski to then Premier League Club, Derby County FC. It was during these negotiations that Derby County FC offered Tony Rallis a two- year scouting role for the Club.
