Sport as a Lifestyle
Silver Sports World is a sports and management agency that suits the needs of modern professional athletes on a global scale.
The demands and complexities of modern sport and its global reach increasingly requires the presence of an organisation at the side of the athlete, a team of trusted advisors with complementary expertise who can help the sportsperson stand up to the mental and physical demands of competition and manage commercial interests with competence, creativity and vision.
That’s Silver Sports World. A Family Office for modern footballers and athletes, combining the expertise of former players, coaches and professionals from the legal and business environment, with international experience and a global network. A team of people with deep knowledge and understanding of sports and their social components, legal complexities and commercial dynamics.
INSPIRING ATHLETES TO THE TOP
We aim to embody the role of the modern sports agent and manager with style, integrity and wisdom. We provide assistance as experienced and unbiased advisors who lead by example, motivate athletes in their day to day work and help them unleash their talent in the game, and make informed decisions for their careers.
That’s our approach. We value ‘Sport as a Lifestyle’, a place of wellbeing and an indispensable conveyor of sound principles and ethical values within the modern society, where athletes stand out on and off the playing field as role models. We place high standards of ethics and integrity upon our own consulting and intermediary activity, and we expect the same from our clients and partners.
We add value to both women and men’s professional careers that goes beyond the procurement of a trial, an international transfer or a commercial endorsement. We provide our clients with experience, leadership and insight drawn from decades of activity in the sports industry.
This is how we support our athletes to plan their career path, emphasising the role of mental strength and balance in sports performance and the importance of education, culture and ethical values as pillars for the development of our athletes in whatever they do, whether in sport or life.
