Danish agency breaks new ground with Simonsen deal
by Jack Hyom

Access for agents to TransferRoom’s global network of clubs proved pivotal in Jeppe Simonsen’s switch from Denmark to Poland through People in Sport.

That gave us the possibility to pitch a player to clubs that we didn’t even know. I did not know the Sporting Director or Podbeskidzie before I pitched the player.

When SønderjyskE Fodbold full-back Jeppe Simonsen was seeking a new challenge earlier this year, his representatives, the People in Sport agency, would previously have been restricted to their existing network of clubs. 


But becoming a TransferRoom Trusted Agent has opened up a world of new possibilities for People in Sport and its players, with direct access to decision-makers at 650+ clubs across the globe helping them grow their global network and pitch talent beyond their home market. 

 

The agency can now promote its players quickly and at scale based on up-to-date market information and clubs’ demands, something that resulted in Simonsen, a Denmark-born Haiti international, earning a transfer to Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała in Poland’s second division - a club People in Sport had never worked with before.

 

With People in Sport given a licence by Simonsen to widen the search for his new club, the agency was able to use the Pitch feature on TransferRoom to reach new markets. And that resulted in an instant match with Podbeskidzie.

 

Simonsen has been a regular in the starting line-up since. 

 

 

 

 

Casper Grønn Spiele, a partner at People in Sport, explains: "We had a plan with the player [Simonsen]. He was not, honestly speaking, concrete about which country or club where he needed to be. 

 

"So for him, if he went to Poland or to Switzerland, it was not that important, so for that reason we did a bit of a wider range. 

 

"And that gave us the possibility to pitch a player to clubs that we didn’t even know. I did not know the Sporting Director or Podbeskidzie before I pitched the player."

 

He continues: "As an agent we know the salary level, and we know how, tax-wise, things were working in Poland, but we didn't have the network on that specific club. 

 

"So for that reason, specifically for one club, one player, it was a match, one-to-one."
