01.02.2019 - MSE „Promoting and Supporting Good Governance in the European Football Agents Industry“

On Friday, February 01, 2019, the Institute of European Sport Development and Leisure Studies of the German Sport University Cologne will host the third Multiplier Sports Event (MSE) on „Promoting and Supporting Good Governance in the European Football Agents Industry“.

After fruitful events in London and Madrid, the Cologne meeting will reflect the ongoing endeavors on player agents’ regulation and analyse the reform perspectives of the FIFA Task Force Transfer System. 

The thematic focus of this third MSE will be placed on “Professional Standards, Licensing and Qualification”. This topic has caused much debate in the past and, so, we are much looking forward to presenting results of our research and discussing the future of player agents’ regulation with you.

This event is part of the ERASMUS+ research project carried out across member states of the European Union. The project is led by Edge Hill University (represented by Professor Richard Parrish) and the project partners are the Universidad Carlos III Madrid, the University of Umeå in Sweden and the University of Rijeka in Croatia.
