SPORT & CAREER

Contract Negotiation

Successful contractual negotiations are one of the keys to a career with strategic and economic success. Contracts have to display exactly what was negotiated and discussed.
At .FAME we negotiate the contracts our clients need. From our many dealings with club Chief Executives and major sports brands, we have the knowledge and diplomacy to get a deal completed efficiently and effectively.

A well-planned career resembles the construction of a house. It does not make sense to get the architect just for the roof. It is already in the foundations that mistakes have to be avoided. In contracts with clubs and outfitters in the youth area there are often no large amounts involved yet. But the structure of such contracts can massively influence follow-up contracts. Not seldomly, contracts signed at youth stages can have effects until far after the youth player has reached the age of majority. As agent of highly talented youth players, .FAME is an experienced negotiation partner who fairly levels out the legitimate interests of the clubs and the young players. We do everything for helping you reach your personal maximum.

Popular athletes players aren’t just idols, they are being admired by thousands of fans and therefore interesting clients for companies.

Credibility, authenticity and distinctiveness are amongst the top priorities.
