It is critical that every player has a professional agent representing only his best interests. As a player you have certain rights, but the team or sponsor that you negotiate with is not obligated to act in your best interest. In fact, their interests are often at odds with what is best for you. No matter what anyone says, you can not rely on the good intentions of your coach, manager, team President or anyone who is replica watches uk not acting strictly on your behalf when negotiating agreements for you.

Your agent should be able to do at least two things for you. First of all, your agent will represent you in all contract negotiations, including playing and sponsorship agreements. Secondly, your agent will work to generate interest in you in the market, calling on teams and sponsors to generate interest in rolex replica you and to help drive up your value.

At Global, we are also available to help you with any personal or business issues that you might have and we coordinate an entire team of experts who are available to you for anything from tax planning and money management to real estate transactions and relocation assistance.

There are tremendous benefits to working with an international FIFA licensed players' agent and there are some huge risks associated with working with someone that is not licensed. The biggest benefit of using a licensed FIFA agent is that in the event you have any problem with your team, your agent will be able to bring your problem to FIFA and FIFA will actually intercede on your behalf. A player who is represented by a FIFA licensed players' agent is guaranteed payment of his contract.

FIFA actually prohibits the use of an agent who is not FIFA licensed (with two exceptions: you are also permitted to use an attorney or a direct member of your family). The FIFA Players' Agent Regulations state that players and clubs are forbidden from using the services of a non-licensed players' agent and go on to say that if a player engages the services of a non-licensed players agent it is left to the discretion of the national association with which the player is registered to punish the player as follows: with a caution, censure or warning; with a fine of replica watches at least 10,000 Swiss Francs; with a disciplinary suspension of up to 12 months and goes on to say that they can impose all three of these penalties together. Teams who deal with an unlicensed agent can be fined up to 20,000 Swiss Francs and suspended from transfers for up to one year!

While FIFA allows the use of an attorney or family member as an agent, FIFA will not intercede on the player's behalf if there is a problem as they will with a licensed FIFA agent.

Whatever you do, you should be represented by a reputable, FIFA licensed players' agent. If you decide not to engage Global, we encourage you to find another FIFA agent who will represent your interests.

Yes, Global represents you under a Standard Representation Agreement which appoints us as your exclusive agent for a period of two years. It is in your best interest to have an exclusive agent. The exclusive agent, particularly an agent who is part of a worldwide agency, will market you all over the world, generating both direct offers from teams and indirect offers from intermediaries representing teams. Any legitimate offer that would have otherwise come directly to you by other agents or intermediaries comes to your exclusive agent, who then evaluates and, where appropriate, negotiates these offers. In addition to making sure the transaction is legal and in compliance with FIFA regulations, your exclusive agent is now in a position to evaluate the full range of opportunities, prevent multiple contacts with a single club (which can cause a team to withdraw its offer), coordinate the scheduling of visits to clubs, avoid conflicting claims for commissions, present a professional front to clubs, and, most importantly, lead a coordinated effort on your behalf drive up the value of the various offers. Separate, independent agents can not make this happen for you.

Anyone who approaches you with an offer should be referred to us as your representative. We will evaluate the offer and negotiate the terms to your advantage. We provide you with all of our contact information and we are accessible twenty-four hours a day.

Our Standard Representation Agreement authorizes us to negotiate on your behalf but it does not authorize us to accept an offer on your behalf. You have the absolute final say on any contract that we negotiate for you. This is one of the reasons that it is very important that we always have your latest contact information.

Global charges 10% of the gross value of your playing contract (salary and signing bonuses) and 25% of sponsorship agreements.

No, we are not able to represent just any player. We limit the number of clients that we have so we are able to give each of our clients our full attention and support when they need us. Consequently, we only accept clients who we believe will be able to play at the highest level in major professional leagues around the world.

Absolutely. Global will have agents working on your behalf in all of the major soccer markets in the world.
