CAS Delivers a Major Blow to Football Agents, Release Clauses and a Stalwart of the Industry

This episode, of “The Agent’s Angle” features an interview with a stalwart of the agent industry and co-founder of Key Sports Management, Colin Gordon. Colin shares with us insights into how he got involved in the football agent industry, where things have gone wrong, the path ahead, and his opinions on a variety of football and agent-related topics …….. as well as fleeting mentions of the Spice Girls, rugby ball contracts, 7ft-2 centre-halves and crossing over to the ‘dark side’.

In addition to this, we look at the response to, and outcome of, the recent CAS decision to rule in favour of FIFA over PROFAA in the dispute over the new FFAR (FIFA Football Agent Regulations).

Also, we touch upon the topic of ‘release clauses’ and a couple of related reports in the media on that same topic.
