The No. 1 Goal in FIFA’s The Vision 2020-2023: Making Football Truly Global is to modernise the football regulatory framework. A crucial element in that regard are football agents and, in this context, FIFA launches today the Executive Programme in Football Agency.

The football agency industry has become relevant since FIFA first introduced regulations back in the 90s requiring the use of highly qualified professionals, able to adequately represent and protect the interests of their clients in the transfer market.

This new initiative is the first educational program for football agents in FIFA’s century plus history and highlights the importance that FIFA attaches to the education of football stakeholders, thus enhancing the professionalism and effectiveness of the football industry.

The programme is also born following the proposals from different agent associations from all around the world, which recently asked FIFA to launch educational programmes in this field.

The FIFA Executive Programme in Football Agency offers a practical and personalised learning approach based on solid theory, combined with research and practical sessions taught by highly reputable specialists.

The programme will run from May until November 2022 and combines online and on-site sessions, with the closing module at the FIFA HQ in Zurich.

Information about applications, which are open until 31 March 2022, can be found at You can find further details about the 1st edition of the FIFA Executive Programme in Football Agency in the official brochure or
