Day in the Life of Billy Forbes

Phoenix Rising FC forward, Billy Forbes, is constantly on the go. As a professional soccer player, businessman and musician he has a lot to get in each day. From taking care of his dogs to training and sponsor commitments, Billy still finds time to inspire kids and watch his wife play soccer too. Here’s a typical day for Billy Forbes.

6:45am
“You probably think I only eat healthy being a professional athlete, but I just can’t resist Reece’s Peanut Butter cereal for breakfast. I figure I’ll work it off in training anyway!”

7:15am
“I take my two dogs, Junior and Anka, out each morning. They certainly take advantage of the grass at our apartment. Junior, my smaller dog, hogs my attention while Anka just likes to do her own thing.”

9:00am
“It’s time to train! We’re out here everyday when we don’t have a match, sometimes even twice a day. Soccer is my life, so even though training is difficult, I can’t help but have a smile on my face.”

12:15am
“One of my favorite parts of being a professional athlete is inspiring and encouraging young soccer players. We host youth clinics at the stadium so my teammates and I will hang around to talk to the kids and sign autographs.”

1:00pm
“As a Phoenix Rising FC player, we also have community partner commitments we must fulfill. So, I head out to meet with one of our biggest partners, Liquid IV, to do a promotional photoshoot for their product.”

2:00pm
“Staying in touch with fans is one of the most important parts of my job, so I spend time engaging with them on social media. I love giving my followers a behind-the-scenes look into my life. I even posted about this article!”

2:15pm
“I also have a passion for music so in the afternoon I try to spend some time in my room mixing beats and recording music. I have a couple of good tracks, but I don’t think the world is ready for my music quite yet.”

6:00pm
“My wife plays soccer for FC Tucson Women so I drive out to Tucson to watch her play. I love watching her games. It’s different being in the stands, but I am her biggest supporter.”

10:00pm
“Time to check in on my clothing line, Me Clothing. I try to keep up with online sales numbers, social media accounts and make sure there are no problems or issues. Even though I try, I can’t be everywhere at once, so thank goodness for my laptop.”

11:00pm
“I don’t watch much TV, but when I finally have a chance to sit down and relax, you guessed it, I watch soccer. Most of my teammates will spend their free time playing video games, but I love to kick back and watch a game.”
