If needed, our extensive sport consultancy provides the player also with video analysis, conducted in cooperation with sports institutes specialized in speed training and sprinting.

Health is everything! Like any sport, also football has many risks. A professional football player must be in excellent physical condition in his profession, where he is subjected to high level of stress and risks of injury. For this reason, we work with leading sports physicians and provide our players with performance diagnostics.

In order to provide our players with the optimal support in their personality development, we work together with reputable mental coaches and sports psychologists who consult our players on a regular basis. This is of special significance to our youngest players, who thereby have the opportunity to recognize the value of personality development and mental welfare already at young age.

After transferring into a country that may well also become player’s new homeland, it is of importance for the player to acquire the basics of the local language. This eases the player’s integration, has a positive effect on his wellbeing and also helps him to get the most out of each training session. Our numerous contacts to language schools and teachers enables us to offer the player a high-quality language course, fully tailored to his needs and training schedules. Our courses also aim to provide the player with the basic knowledge about the culture and institutions of the host society.

In cooperation with our marketing partners, we develop personalised marketing concepts for our players, connect them with appropriate companies of sports industry and escort them throughout the negotiation process until the signing of the PR/advertising contract. Through our experience and networks, we are well positioned in every aspect of marketing and strive for concluding long-term contracts with partners that are most suitable for our clients.

Discreetly in the background but with the necessary intensity, we take care of our player’s public relations and media relations. We have close relations with sport journalists in various media. In the modern professional football, a detailed consulting in all issues concerning public appearance is indispensable for a player. Professional football and the mass media need each other. Millions of TV viewers, radio listeners and newspaper readers worldwide follow intensively the football scene on and off the pitch.

Due to global mediatization, the players need to have good media literacy skills and understanding of the role of all public appearances for their career. Only one wrong word or a thoughtless gesture at the wrong time can have fatal effects for the image and market value of the player or even the entire club. Therefore, it is of great importance for the players to continuously train their communication skills and public appearance, in order to deliver a professional and positive image to the public.

Against this background, we provide our players with media training at their request – fully individualized to correspond to their needs. Together with our partner Hauptstadt-IT, we also create and administer internet homepage for our players and support them in all social media –related issues.

On request, Glückskind Sport Management provides the player with an extensive network of auditors and tax consultants, who are experienced in the field of sport management.
