In this article, I will like to share the knowledge of becoming a registered football agent with you.
How to become a registered football agent
Like in any sport, a talented football player needs representation in negotiating a dream move to a better club alongside a lucrative financial security with the third party willing to pay for their talent. This could be the parents or any other individual with the knowledge and legal qualification of the football industry.
I’m often asked the question “How can I become a football agent”. Becoming a football agent is not like your usual office job. One big mistake that many wanna-be football agents make is not understanding the process of becoming a legitimate and registered football agent, thinking just because they have one or two talented players they are in a position to approach a professional football club to sign up their players.
As the saying goes ‘Knowledge is power’, so it is critically important to remember that to become a registered football agent you will need to acquaint yourself with the procedure and regulations. Why is that? I hear you ask. Well, a football agent has a duty, to the football bodies and most importantly the player or players they are representing, to perform as deligently and honestly as possible.
Fifa (the World Football ruling body) has produced a set of regulations to help the aspiring football agent, you can check here-http://www.fifa.com/aboutfifa/organisation/footballgovernance/playeragents/regulation.html.
Now that you are aware of the regulations and how to pursue that dream, it is your duty to adhere to the code of practice including the ethics of performing your best for the interests of the players you will be representing.
Well then, what are you waiting for? Get trained, recognised and respected as one of the best football agents in the business.
