Description

ASA Football Agent - Level 1

ASA Football Agent - Level 1 could be your first step onto a pathway that leads you into an exciting career as a Football Agent.

In April 2015, FIFA de-regulated Football Agent activity and gave Agents the new title of 'Football Intermediaries'. FIFA's changes effectively mean that there are no longer any 'licensed' Football Agents and no barriers to entry (like the FA Exam or the FIFA bond). As a result almost anyone can set themselves up as a Football Agent/Intermediary. Many will see this as an opportunity to break into an industry awash with money.

Taking place in the Sir Elton John Suite at Vicarage Road, the home of English Premier League Club, Watford FC, the seminar will be led by Tony Sharkey, Football Intermediary at Athelite Sports Agency (ASA).

Also now available ONLINE via our webinar.

Tony, a successful Football Agent for over 15 years, will provide you with his own personal account of how he started in the business. Tony will be joined by Ryan McKnight. Football executive McKnight has worked with several football clubs including Wolves, Port Vale and Stockport as well as being the former editor of FC Business magazine.

The Level 1 is an intensive two and a half hour seminar / webinar. As well as Tony and Ryan providing you with practical tips, advice and guidance and a wealth of insider knowledge to help you get started, there are also three tasks to complete. Topics:

How to get started

Working with Clubs

Working with Players (including Minors) and their families

Player attributes, strengths and weaknesses

FA Registration process

Football Club Case Study

Q & A

The seminar / webinar is suitable for: New Football Intermediaries, Close Relations/Friends of Players, ex Players or Players nearing retirement, Managers, Coaches, Scouts, Lawyers, Solicitors, Recruitment Professionals, Sports Journalists, and Degree Level Students or individuals thinking about a career in the Football Industry.

153 aspiring Football Agents have now completed the Level 1 seminar / webinar and a further 19 have completed the Level 2 workshop held at the following venues: St James' Park, Newcastle Utd FC, Broadhurst Park, FC Utd of Manchester, Elland Road, Leeds United FC, Etihad Stadium, Manchester City FC and Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.

Several of those attendees have now registered as Football Intermediaries with the English FA and other FA's around the world and several others are now working in the football business.
