The activity of the sports agents is regulated by the provisions of the sports code and French and international federal regulations (FFF & FIFA). These texts lay out the following main principles that we are committed to respect:
- The agent must be a holder of a license issued by the federation after passing an exam held annually ;
- The contract entered into between an agent and a player must be in writing and cannot exceed a period of more than two years ;
- The payment of the agent cannot exceed, depending on the circumstances, 6 to 10% of the value of the contract he enters into ;
- Every operation concerning an underage player is non-eligible for payment.
The associates are committed to treat other sports agents in a collegial and respectful way.
Our shared desire to work towards the eradication of racism and to establish sport, particularly football, as an important vehicle for tolerance, co-existence and social cohesion.
On this basis, we have begun discussions with various associations in order to redirect them part of the agency’s commissions with the aim of financing their actions.
