The quest for greatness is alive and well.

It lives in every backyard baseman and grade school goalie. It lives in soccer stars, gridiron giants and world-class fighters. The challenge is translating the passion of little league into a legacy that lasts.  Sporting Global approaches that challenge with quality, determination and a commitment to excellence to match the elite athletes and organizations we represent.  With our help, global brands expand to new markets, and lifelong fans are born – ensuring the long-term financial success of the organizations and athletes we proudly serve.


At Sporting Global, we know how hard you play. And that’s how hard we’ll work.

Our Playbook

Professional Teams

Sporting Global provides services for every stage of your game. Whether you are establishing a new team or expanding an existing brand, there’s a Sporting Global strategy that’s specific to you.

  • Identifying New Market Opportunities

    A successful player is always advancing. Growing. Improving. And so should their personal brand.

    Sporting Global is constantly scouting out new opportunities for our clients, ensuring their brand development is as unique and progressive as they are.

  • Camps and Clinics

    Legends are made, not born. At Sporting Global camps and clinics, we’re creating legends, one at a time. Athletes of all ages experience the drive, the determination and the dedication to excellence demonstrated by the teams who proudly utilize our team’s experience to create a camp atmosphere unlike any other. Athletes leave our camps and clinics better prepared to play the sports they love, and they have more love for the teams and athletes that gave them that knowledge. So while legends are made, fans are born at our camps. And they’ll stay with you for life.

  • Club/Team Consulting

    All of the most successful athletes have one thing in common: efficiency. Steps aren’t wasted. Every movement serves a purpose. We work with our clients to improve internal business operations. We can provide consulting support on organization dynamics, finances, marketing, innovation, game day operations, fan engagement and cross cultural engagement. Want to maximize your success? Be efficient on the field, and off.

  • Brand Expansion and Monetization

    The most successful brands in sports grow strategically and authentically. We help our clients develop innovative programs in new markets, maximizing opportunities for growth locally, nationally and globally. Along the way, our clients earn new fans. Those fans, coupled with our best-in-class support, guarantee new revenue and long-term financial success. While you’re building your legend, we’re growing your legacy. Ready for a huddle?

  • Game day operations

    For fans, the game day experience starts long before the clock. There are rituals and rivalries to be honored. Tailgates and lucky t-shirts. At Sporting Global, we have a game day ritual of our own: providing seamless game day operations, so that the excellence fans come to see on the field is reflected off field too. Want your fans to come back, again and again? We’ll deliver an experience that makes that happen.

     

  • Brand Building Through Community Outreach

    Your legacy may start because of what you do in a stadium, but it will flourish because of what you do with your fans. Sporting Global works as a liaison between clients and fans, creating genuine connections that will last a lifetime. Leveraging local contacts and building a fan base that grows year after year is our business. We’re about the details. Because details matter.

Professional athletes

  • PLAY.

    We’re proud to be valued teammates for high-value, high-profile athletes. We help our clients seize opportunities through ongoing representation, contract negotiation and professional physical development. Focus on your game. Leave everything else up to us.

  • BUILD.

    Your record on the field matters, but your track record off the field counts too. We help our athletes build and maximize their personal brands through community work, sponsorships, active public engagement and the creation of unique revenue opportunities tailor-made for every client we serve. We also negotiate and maximize sponsorship agreements, making the most of every opportunity for our athletes. Your brand can transcend your sporting accomplishments. We can help.

  • PLAY ON.

    You’ve worked hard to get where you are. But where do you want to go next?

    We’ll help you stay involved in the sport you love, long after your playing days are through. We do this by helping expand your brand and creating opportunities for engagement in the communities that matter to you and your fans.
