Ben Arojojoye

Investment Banker
London, UK

"It can be quite challenging to build a pathway into football if there isn’t an established connection in place, Erkut’s course solves the issue and for this I cannot speak highly enough about the course conducted by him and the team!

The course was packed with lots of valuable knowledge, insights, experiences and interactions with various individuals from Erkut’s vast network.

I’m a firm believer in investing in yourself for the long term and this course was worth the time, energy and the money! "

Paolo Cucalon

Football Agent
Cali, Colombia

"I found the course extremely valuable because Dr. Sogut is a special person, honest, transparent, and highly educated, which is difficult to find in this industry. He is someone that you can trust.

Additionally, I believe that the course gave me huge value because while we were learning we were also interns at Grow Sports Management Company, which exposed us to real case studies that we worked on.

Every week we also met and spoke with many successful professionals from the industry who provided us with valuable advice and insights.

The guidance, experience and networking opportunities that this course offers are unique, I don’t believe you can find it anywhere else. I highly recommend it!"

Faheem Hamid

Senior Business Analyst
Watford, UK

"As the father of two Championship academy players, my experience with agents was not very good. At first, the thought of representing my children was daunting and I had no idea where to start, however, this programme was hugely beneficial for me.

The skills demanded of and networking ability of an agent are vast but Dr Erkut covered both theory and practice to give me the foundation to start that journey, provided me with valuable insights and introduced me to many high-level professionals within the industry through the classes.

After finishing this course, I am confident that I can effectively start to represent my children and manage their careers."
