What is EFAA?

The European Football Agents Association (“EFAA”) is a non-profit organization with a membership base consisting of national agent associations in Europe and affiliate associations worldwide. Given this global network, EFAA is comprised of over 1,000 professionally-organized players’ agents.

Our history

Our aims

EFAA has emerged as the leading body to represent the interests of football agents in the professional football industry. This role is further accentuated by our primary objectives:

  • Defend the collective interests of agents;
  • Bring together existing agent associations or assist in creating new ones;
  • Bolster members’ positioning in front of professional football stakeholders;
  • Promote the commercial image of football agents; and
  • Foster cooperation with professional football stakeholders.

Our approach

As a professional representative body, EFAA operates on express mandates from its members. This ensures a democratic governance structure that accounts directly to EFAA’s constituents, who are ultimately the agents themselves. For the first time in the EU, EFAA has emerged as a guardian of the agents’ profession and gives agents a voice in the regulation, development and image of their own profession. Our primary tasks are to:


Coordinate the registration and accreditation of football agents across jurisdictions in the EU, and facilitate compliance with regulations


Provide expert legal and practical assistance to national agent associations on EU and national legislation, especially in contract and employment law


Facilitate amicable dispute resolution between agents and football stakeholders


Improve the positioning of EFAA members amongst key football governing bodies via critical enagement and discussion on all issues relevant to the agency profession


Grow EFAA's membership base so as to reflect the global nature of the agency profession, and more so, the sport itself


Exchange best practices amongst members so as to stimulate greater harmonization within the profession
