Eddie Hearn’s Early Life Experience:
On 8th June 1979, Edward John Hearn was born in Barry Maurice William Hearn’s home.
Eddie was never into the study in his early years, he flunked his GCSE’s and played cricket and football. He was always into sports as his father was always out and about talking, discussing and mentioning sports even at home. Their main concern, since it was their source of income, was sports. So Eddie was never interested in his studies. This was in Brentwood School in Essex. Later, he went to Havering Sixth Form College which was in Romford. It was rather a low-level college and his mother couldn’t believe his son’s low study ability and it is mentioned that she cried the first day she dropped Eddie off for school. Mister Barry Hearn promised Eddie a thousand pounds if he took a B or even a C grade in his subjects. Eddie took business studies, media studies, and physical education as his courses. He did good in that college and attained one A grade and 2 C’s.
Personal Life, Family, Wife:
Edward Hearn is married to his wife Chloe Hearn. They have two daughters together named Isabella and Sophia. This family lives in Billericay in Essex.
His father is the initiator and owner of Matchroom Sport, founded in 1982. Snooker has become Britain’s favorite sport ever since Barry Hearn made Steve Davis become snooker World Championship winner. The company was overwhelmed by the responses given by the Britain people and this is how it caught eyes and attention in the television and even live.
It has become so famous that today, Matchroom not only provides snooker but, tons of different sports such as gymnastics, poker, golf, fishing, darts, table tennis, and football.

Eddie’s Achievements with the company:
