The Certificate in Football Player Intermediation is a two-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).






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. 








  • Live weekly online classes with top football agents, sports lawyers, professional players and sporting directors. We have assembled a top line-up of guest speakers to put you in front of some of the industry's top decision-makers. All speakers have been carefully selected to provide you a holistic view of the industry to prepare you for a successful career as a football intermediary. 
  • Up-to-date, real-life training content. As you may know, the regulations to become a registered agent/intermediary are constantly evolving. Our team of experts is well-networked and up to speed on the most recent rule changes proposed by FIFA and the national associations around the globe. You will have the opportunity to have the latest information so you can successfully operate as a football agent. 
  • Personalized Career Development Mentoring Program. Tailor career mentoring program based on each student's goals, aspirations, age, geographical location, previous experience and motivations. We will map out a career plan together with you so you can begin building your network and setting the bases to start or advance your career as a football agent/intermediary.

  • I enrolled in several programs at the Sports Business Institute Barcelona to acquire new skills and network with industry professionals. I am absolutely thrilled to have taken their programs as they have given me valuable and practical information that I have used in my professional life. The material presented in the course is very relevant, fresh and easy to comprehend. I would recommend their courses to anyone who is looking to break into the sports industry or is currently working at a sports organization. The courses offer so many takeaways and lessons that will be used in the future. Congratulations to Diego, Emma and the entire SBI team for their organization and drive to deliver top-quality content to students!

    I needed a new challenge and SBI gave me the flexibility and support to achieve a Masters degree whilst maintaining a high standard at work and travelling up and down the country and Europe for work. The course was incredibly informative and helpful and I enjoyed studying with people from all over the world. I recommend the course for anyone currently working in football or aspiring to get a career in football.

    Studying a Masters at the Sports Business Institute Barcelona has allowed me to gain a full understanding on the business side of football. In many ways it has opened my eyes into the sector that I work in as a professional footballer. They are top professionals that are well-connected in the sports industry.
