Sport Global Management & Pro-Active Living Sports Agency
Soccerex’s global cross-section of clients activates business opportunities across the world. As a result of last year’s convention over £500 million of business will be completed – much of which will be in South Africa, with over half of our international delegates indicating a desire to pursue partnerships or set up offices within South Africa.
Gael Mahe, CEO, Sport Global Management first attended a Soccerex 2006 in Dubai, his football agency firm are well established in Europe offering exceptional services to clients including the French Football Federation, Konami, Coca-Cola and a wide range of international football players. Through Account Manager introductions and industry focused networking breaks he met Rasthoem Simons, Managing Director of a South African based agency called Pro-Active Living Sports Agency. South Africa is one of the key growth markets in our global economy and since it has been awarded the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the commercial opportunities available in this vibrant country have been well documented.
“Soccerex has been a good experience for our company and we will continue to support it for many years to come. In 2006 in Dubai we met a South African based agency managed by Rasthoem Simons and by Soccerex 2007 in South Africa we came to an agreement and Sport Global Management South Africa was born.”
Gael Mahe, CEO, Sport Global Management International
The South African branch of this global sports agency is based in Cape Town. The company focuses on Player and Coaches Management as well as marketing and promoting Southern African National Teams and Clubs abroad. This rapidly expanding company have secured training camp locations for International teams in South Africa and Botswana which will be in high demand ahead of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009, AFCON 2010 and FIFA World Cup 2010.
“We have already concluded a few deals and we reiterate that this was all possible due to the amazing networking capabilities of Soccerex.”
Gael Mahe, CEO of Sport Global Management International
Since our move to South Africa this is just one of the many examples of successful business ventures between African based clients and delegates that attend from Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Australasia.
