Description in Norwegian not found. We only have a description in English:

A sports agent is a legal representative hence agent for professional sports figures like athletes, managers and coaches and procures and negotiates employment and endorsement contracts for the athlete or coach whom they represent. Because of the unique characteristics of the industry sports agents are responsible for communications with team owners, managers, coaches, and other individuals. Primarily, agents are used to broker and negotiate contracts for their clients. Also, they are responsible for making recommendations in regard to the athlete's options. In addition to finding income sources, agents often handle public relations matters for their clients. In some large sports agencies, such as IMG, Creative Artists Agency, Roc Nation Sports and Octagon, agents deal with all aspects of a client's finances, from investment to filing taxes.

Sports agents may be relied upon by their clients for guidance in all business aspects, and sometimes even more broadly. For example, hockey agents start recruiting clients as young as 15, allowing the agent to guide the athlete's career before the NHL draft, which happens usually at 18 years of age.

Due to the length and complexity of contracts, many sports agents are lawyers or have a background in contract law. Agents are expected to be knowledgeable about finance, business management, and financial and risk analysis, as well as sports. It is important for a sports agent to follow trends in sports. Other skills an agent must possess are excellent communication and negotiation skills. Agents must be highly motivated, willing to work long hours, and capable of multitasking. It is very common for agents to be in negotiations on behalf of several clients at one time.

Some agents are part of large companies, and some are on their own. The number of clients an individual agent can handle and how many clients his or her employing agency can handle in total are interdependent variables.

Before the 1990s, most soccer players did not use agents. In some cases, they used their fathers as agents. Because of most parents' naivete about the football business, these young footballers were often given less-than-stellar contracts by football clubs, which yielded lower salaries than they thought they deserved. In Sweden, there were only three licensed agents in 1995. As of 2002, there were 33. According to FIFA, there were 5,187 licensed association football agents world-wide, with 600 agents in Italy alone. Since 2001, agents have not been licensed by FIFA. Instead, agents are now licensed directly by each association.

Sports agents generally receive between 4 and 10% of the athlete's playing contract, and 10 to 20% of the athlete's endorsement contract, although these figures vary. NFL agents are not permitted to receive more than 3%, and NBA agents not more than 4%, of their client's playing contracts.

Avstemningsreglene

  • Du kan stemme opp eller ned. Vennligst alltid vurdere konteksten for å stemme, for eksempel en sang skal bli stemt opp eller ned i forhold til de andre sangene som finnes på albumet, en skuespiller prestasjoner i forhold til andre aktører i samme film, en bok med hensyn til andre bøker av samme forfatter eller innenfor samme sjanger.
  • En stemme kan avbrytes ved å klikke på motsatt stemme innen 24 timer. Du kan da stemme på nytt på samme gjenstand.
  • Hver bruker har en stemme per element innenfor en bestemt liste hver 24. time. Etter 24 timer kan du stemme på nytt på den samme varen innen den samme listen.
  • Du kan stemme på så mange elementer som du liker i en liste eller på samme element hvis det er en del av en annen liste. For eksempel kan du stemme David Bowie opp eller ned på listen over pop artister samt på listen over indie rock artister og på listen over rock artister etc.
  • Glad Stemmegivning!
