The future role of the football agent in the transfer market
Academics from the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences and the European Football Agents Associations are running a one day event to explore the role of the football agent in the transfer market.
About this event
Exploring the future of football agents and transfers
Agents, representatives of football stakeholders, and experts will meet to discuss the ongoing reform process of agents regulation by FIFA and the implications the proposed new regulations will have on future transfer deals.
The event will explore the reintroduction of licences for agents, potential commission cap and clubs being barred from paying agents.
Chaired by Professor Richard Parrish of Edge Hill University who leads Erasmus+ Project on agents, the panel of speakers includes EFAA Vice President and football agent Giovanni Branchini, who has represented some of the game’s best players, Daan de Jong, the European Club Association (ECA) Head of Sport Legal and FIFA Task Force Member, and Dr Serhat Yilmaz of Loughborough University, an expert in regulation of agents in football and the programme director of Loughborough’s professional certificate programme for sports agents.
Loughborough University and the European Football Agents Associations (EFAA) will host the one-day event at Loughborough University London, located within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. For information on how to find us, visit our location section.
