Ballon Sports Agency and Intermediary

Ballon is a sophisticated and progressive agency for player representation. Our roots are founded in the beautiful game though with capabilities and interests in other sports. The United Kingdom is our main ‘back yard’ but our Directors have firm footholds in Turkey, Romania and mainland Europe. However, our activities are truly global, with a wealth of connections – the envy of others. Our unique commercial skills have become our trademark in an industry where being that one step ahead makes the difference to success. Ballon Sports concentrates on: intermediary services for players seeking new opportunities and contracts; wrap around full welfare service for our clients, including career management and branding; training camps and talent showcasing; and video and traditional CV design and publishing for athletes. FA Intermediary IMS003597.

Transfer Window

“If I say so myself, for a fledgling agency, the calibre of players exceeds our expectations. We have an abundance of goalkeepers, young and with international caps. I blame this on both Russ and myself who both have sons that have played in nets.

Today at a National League North fixture. The UK is our natural heartland through the levels of the football pyramid. Our overseas expertise and talent comes from Turkey, Romania and this year Bulgaria. We have access to seasoned professionals and young players from South America. A striker from Poland. And Russ has unearthed two New Zealand internationals which are available now.

All I would say is that I encourage any Clubs to make enquiries. It costs nothing but time to make an initial enquiry to Ballon.”

Mascots

Interesting debate. Should EPL clubs charge for the rights to be mascot. Image from @footyaccums

From my perspective including EFL, NL and NLN it is an acceptable income stream in commercial budgets with discretionary allocations waiiving fees in case of hardship or ‘charitable’ recognition.

Hagi’s Kids

ACROBAT | FCSM is delighted by yet another high profile appointment. This time no other than the Champions of the Romanian Liga 1, the top flight of football in the Country. Founded in 2009 by former Romanian international and Galatasaray Legend, Gheorghe Hagi, the Club is known for developing young players from its impressive Academy, hence the nickname “Hagi’s Kids”.

On 13 May 2017, Viitorul Constanța managed to win the Liga 1 after a 1–0 home victory over CFR Cluj – the first major trophy in its history which also ensured qualification for the UEFA Champions League. With the average age of the squad being 22.2 years, “Hagi’s Kids” were the season’s youngest league champions in Europe.

ACROBAT | FCSM will be leading partnership activities with its contacts in UK, Turkey and Romania. More information: viitorul@acrobatfcsm.com
