Ryan Mattis is a retired player who began his football career in Germany with SV Blankenese where he spent two seasons as a defender with the club. He went on to continue playing in Belgium with OHL Leuven thereafter and finished his playing career in England with short spells at Wingate Finchley and Ilford FC in the Conference level. Prior to his career in Europe, Mattis had been selected to earn one cap at the U20 level with Jamaica before the 2000 Olympics under head coach Clovis De Oliveira. In 2001 he received an invitation from Jamaica to join the squad on the preliminary roster before the last selection for the final stages of World Cup qualifying for the 2002 World Cup in Japan.
With a keen technical eye and well mannered approach to the business, Mattis continues his commitment to the game with Nova Sports Group and has been involved in player transfers for established veterans and young talented players worldwide. Through working his contacts, Mattis has also connected Nova Sports Group into USA Youth National Team and Senior National Team players as well as National Team players from Europe, South America and Africa.
