December 18 – New launch player transfers app Soccer Mandate has announced a strategic partnership with China’s Sport 8 International.
Soccer Mandate is a business-to-business app aimed at the professional market of clubs and agents providing information on football transfers.
Through the app clubs will be able to identify the official agent or mandated intermediary of/for each player – often an issue in transfer dealings where agents are notorious for trying to do deals on players that aren’t their own.
Licensed Agents will be verified and must show a player contract and player passport details to confirm their exclusive rights to that player to be able to be monitored as the verified agent of the player.
If an agent attempts to input inaccurate information or attempts to add another agent’s player own player to his/her list, Soccer Mandate will immediately request proof of rights.
Sport 8 International is focussed on sports business, education, coaching and sports technology applications in China. It was founded by Sino-America Internet entrepreneur Bai Qiang (pictured left), captain of Dutch National Football Team Wesley Sneijder, and China’s most famous sports commentator Huang Jianxiang.
Alexander Jarvis (pictured right), incoming CEO of Soccer Mandate, said: “My key objective at Soccer Mandate is to bring transparency to the global football market which is a key issue in the business and to expand the business in China.”
