Premier League Agent With Hot Prospect for this Transfer Window Given Fine & Ban for Old Regulation Breaches – Problems for FIFA in Argentina – Marking Errors Reported in FIFAs 3rd FFAR Agents Exam.

Season 1 : Episode 39

The case of the agent for one of the hottest players in this summer ’24 transfer window is fined and suspended for breaches of the intermediary (agent) regulations from more than 4 years ago – along with a club, and club officials also being sanctioned.

More problems for FIFA, with another ruling against the FFAR in Argentina and reports of the 3rd FFAR football agents exam being subject to marking errors.

The show also looks to answer listener questions covering topics such as penalty clauses for players in contracts, approaching players, using RSTP and FFAR correctly and whether old agents can regain their agent license.

And there is of course ‘quick takes’, looking at tax breaks for Mbappe and co in Madrid, FIFA welcoming agents into the ‘Football Family’, a new mega-agency emerging, and how one sports agent’s own personal brand has secured them a lucrative deal.
