Starting from when you first embark on your professional journey we will be on hand to support you.
We have a phenomenal team of financial experts in all areas and we want to educate and support you in making the best decisions for you and your family. As a footballer you never know what is around the corner. It could be a career ending injury, it could be health problems, it could even be something outside of the sport that means you can no longer have your dream career.
We believe in planning to prevent future problems. When many leave professional sport they can very quickly end up in financial difficulty. Many experience mental health problems as a result and struggle to adapt to life beyond their previous career. It then becomes a spiral of where they are lost, with no support and no financial or career support and end up losing what they have worked hard to achieve.
This is something from experience where we are passionate and driven towards supporting sports teams and individuals. Our model starts with education, teaching you how to limit the risk of problems, how to identify problems and also should things get worse be able to seek the help and support you need to limit the time spent being unwell.
When it comes to a players mental health there is unfortunately no one size fits all approach. That is why we work with the individual over a sustained period of time. We need to educate and build trust and a rapport to be able to support them as best as possible. We can be a constant point of contact should a player need a chat, need advice or need more medical assistance.
The reality of life as a professional athlete is it is short lived and for some unfortunately even shorter due to career ending injury or health condition, being released or deciding upon retirement. This can be a daunting and fearful period, losing what you have loved doing for so many years to be in the unknown. This increases the risk mental health related issues, financial problems and difficulty finding a love and passion to make you happy and support your family beyond sport.
Well this is where we come in. We will work with you at any point in your journey to plan for this outcome. Whether this be that you are being released at age 18 and want to set up a business so you have something to go into when they day comes. Or it could be that you are a first team player who wishes to invest in a business or have a business idea in which we can develop on your behalf either as an additional revenue stream of for you to step into when you retire.
One day you are scoring goals, keeping clean sheets, competing at the highest level, maybe top of your sport. But the next day that is all gone. The contrast is all too striking and disorientating. You know one day, some day this will be come and you will have to embark on another journey. This provides a lot of emotions and can leave you lacking direction. You have had a career where you have been in a changing room full of laughter and support, being told your daily schedule, everything planned out for you. But one day that has gone and who has your back? Who is there to be on hand to help support you at any given time and provide support fo you and your family. We have a unique and genuinely passionate approach to support you, constantly reviewing your circumstances to ensure you are on target to achieve your goals.
