What are players’ agents? Why should they be regulated? How should they be regulated? These three apparently simple questions are tackled throughout this book. The first question appears straightforward as agents perform similar functions throughout the world. However, as the contributions in the book reveal, the manner in which agents operate varies.

The questions of why and how to regulate again reveals common themes but also considerable variations in patterns of regulation. In this connection, there are, in effect, three tiers of agent regulation: international law, national law and the law of the sports associations. This book covers the legal regulations governing players’ agents in forty countries around the world, representing the major footballing constituencies including Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Russia as well as the ’Big Five’ in Europe.

  • As the first monograph on the legal status of professional football player’s agents, it promotes better understanding of their legal position
  • Deals with public national, public international and sports association legal aspects, thus making it a useful tool for comparative legal study
  • Worldwide coverage of case studies helps to improve the visibility of the player’s agent profession
