Highlight for Soccer and FIBA Agents
Soccer and International Basketball ( FIBA) are expanding and more foreign athletes are being signed by US based agents. As agents your will need to stay aware of the different country rules, laws, and regulations regarding athletes, specific governmental issues, and their procedures. In the US we have a market place that is less prone to government interference than elsewhere however if the problem has ever received headlines here then it is probable you will see it overseas also. The difference(s) in handling are as varied as the country your recruit in so be forewarned. The double checking of procedures and the athletes record are more important. The receiving of misleading information is more common and you will often lack the means to verify. Proceed with caution and keep your business hat on.
