Damian Alexander Dubel was born in Hertfordshire.
Before Damian was known as an Entrepreneur, his passion was football. He started his career at Tottenham Hotspur as a child before joining the youth system at Norwich City, even though his signature was sought by many London clubs.
He scored Norwich's City's first goal in the 2-1 FA Youth Cup victory over the previous season's champions Aston Villa in December 2002. Following this he accompanied the first team during the 2003 pre-season tour to the Netherlands and was part of the first team squad and prior to the signing of Marc Edworthy, was acting as second choice right back behind Keith Briggs.
In January 2004, it was announced that he would not be offered a new professional contract by the Canaries after 8 years at the club.
In September 2004, Damian signed for Barnet Football Club, making his debut in a 3–1 win over Stevenage Borough in the EFL Trophy. Barnet won the Conference title in his first season with the club, gaining promotion to EFL League Two with Damian playing a vital role in the team's success.In May 2005, he signed a new one-year contract with the club after making nineteen appearances in the previous campaign, scoring once in the 7–1 rout against Farnborough Town.
After 2 years at Barnet Damian signed for Stevenage Borough on a free transfer in January 2007. His time here was hampered by injuries including a serious broken ankle.
In January of 2009, Damian signed for Oxford United where he played a major part in the club's success featuring in the 2010 Conference National play-off Final win over York City at Wembley Stadium, gaining promotion to League Two.

In May 2013, he decided to leave Oxford United, making 180 appearances and scoring three times.
In July 2013, he became a part of Vancouver Whitecaps FC in Major League Soccer. Nevertheless, despite a six-month stint and extended contract negotiations, a permanent move did not materialize. In September 2013, he made the challenging decision to retire from professional football, citing it as "the hardest decision of my life," with the intention of focusing on his business ventures.
In June 2014, he reversed his retirement and reengaged in full-time football, signing a two-year contract with League Two outfit Dagenham & Redbridge.
