Hello,

As a sports industry professional, I have seen that the best avenue for becoming an agent is law with background in business classes as well. By becoming a lawyer, you'll be able to understand a negotiate contracts, which is a large part of the job.

Hi Allan,

In my personal opinion, it is not hard to become a sports agent if you enjoy being an active person, making new friends, assisting to events and facing new challenges..

As a soccer agent you will be in charge of managing players contracts, the marketing around them and seek for the better opportunities and proposals to grow the players professional career.

My advice for you is to get a degree in Business Administration or Law, since you will need to review contracts making sure you understand all terms and conditions. Also you can take a sports agent or soccer agent professional course. You can find them everywhere and there are some great options in Spain. It is essential that you have a good preparation to understand the sports industry. The work of an agent is very extensive, so you need to introduce yourself into this world while trying to connect with experts. The networking is VERY IMPORTANT, so make sure to get involved with people that can help you get sponsors or to get closer to the market you would like to belong.

At the beginning of this career you will need to be patient. Reputation is built day by day, and if you work hard you will soon get the know how you need to start growing as a professional sports agent.
