The Certificate in Football Player Intermediation is a three-month online course designed to equip you with the formal skills and knowledge to successfully represent football players and clubs worldwide.
Created in close consultation with some of the most relevant and successful player agents (intermediaries) and sports lawyers in the game, the course will provide you with the practical elements and theoretical background to gain a competitive advantage in this highly-competitive sector.
The course curriculum has been designed with one main objective in mind: to provide you a practical and in-depth overview on how to begin and sustain a successful career as a football agent (intermediary).
GROW YOUR NETWORK OF FOOTBALL INTERMEDIARIES AND INDUSTRY CONTACTS WORLDWIDE
One of the biggest challenges for current and aspiring football agents is a lack of industry contacts. You may have the theoretical knowledge on what it takes to be a successful intermediary in the football industry, however, if you lack a wide network odds are you will struggle to operate on a sustainable basis.
This certificate will not only equip you with the latest information you will require to represent players, but also, provide you a gateway to network with numerous other agents/intermediaries, club professionals, international scouts, sporting directors and former and current professional football players, among others.
You will increase your network in the following three ways:
1. By engaging with your cohort classmates, many who are already working in the football industry
2. Forming part of an alumni community at SBI which spans to over 85 countries
3. Having access to top guest speakers, including industry-leading sports lawyers, agents, professional players, sporting directors and more.
