The football agency that gets it right: owned by fans and run for players.
25% of The Fans Agency will be owned by the fans who can also own shares in the fees generated by individual players.
A percentage of our revenue will go to supporting grassroots football across the country. We love the game - every game.
We’ll manage our players so they get the best out of their careers. We’re here to support them, not the other way round.
This is the way it should be done:
for the fans, for the players, for the beautiful game.
We don’t want to own this agency – not all of it, anyway. That’s why we’re crowdfunding: we’re raising money to launch this ground-breaking idea so that it can be owned by all of us – all fans of this beautiful game. Capital at risk.
You can invest as little as £10.
Jon Smith is one of the UK’s most successful football agents with an illustrious career spanning over 30 years. Often dubbed football’s first super-agent, his autobiography, The Deal, is a number one bestseller and he has represented both Maradona and the entire England national football team. He knows his stuff! His vision is to create a better alternative to traditional football player management and let the fans be part of it.
“Jon has only ever wanted the best for the players he’s representing. I respect that in a person, to fight hard in what you believe in – and Jon certainly does that.”
We believe we are the future football agency: one that charges reasonable fees, is transparent in the way it conducts itself and looks after the players, the fans and this beautiful game.
Finding, nurturing and developing players is core to our purpose – their careers matter. We’ll help them make the right choices for them. Not for us!
And then there’s the fans: not only will fans own 25% of The Fans Agency, they will also help us find that new talent. Moreover, they’ll help us decide how and where we spend our grassroots support funding, and as shareholders in the business, there’s the potential to benefit financially. This is about the fans and the game, not the agency.
Our ethos enables us to distribute our revenues in an entirely new way*:
