The right contact with real agents: Why Botafogo has joined TransferRoom
by Jack Hyom

Brazilian giants become members of world football’s digital marketplace to work with Trusted Agents and get direct access to 650+ clubs’ needs in the transfer market.

It allows us to have the right contacts in the club, to have the right contact with the agents, the real agents of the player. It facilitates us to trust and make the right connection

Connecting with verified agents

 

Busy Sporting Directors at high-profile clubs like Brazil’s Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas get inundated with pitches and requests from intermediaries trying to earn high commissions and agents not verified as the player’s representative. 

It makes it difficult to pinpoint the correct contact and relevant pitches for players with the profile and salary expectations that are the right fit for the club. And there historically hasn’t been one efficient method of sharing club requirements with a wide pool of verified agents at the same time. 

Searching for transparency, trust and direct contact with club decision makers and verified agents, Botafogo has turned to TransferRoom. 

As members they not only gain access to executives at clubs in more than 100 leagues worldwide, but also hundreds of TransferRoom Trusted Agencies, verified as the real representatives of all their players on the platform. 

“It's one of the most important things in the platform, because it allows us to have the right contacts in the club, to have the right contact with the agents, the real agents of the player. It facilitates us to trust and make the right connection,” Botafogo Sporting Director Andre Mazzuco says in the video below.

 



“It's good, just to increase our range, have closer connections with big clubs and with great markets, even the ones that are growing right now.”

The Brasileiro Série A club’s arrival on the platform is part of their mission to improve their recruitment and scouting operations, and they join a growing community of Brazilian clubs now using TransferRoom to become more efficient and targeted in their transfer business, with SC Internacional and Flamengo among the success stories.

Access to real-time player availability and club requirements ensures Botafogo’s recruitment team can pitch players to target buyers’ needs and identify the teams who have the profile and salary expectations of new signings they are searching for. 

Explaining Botafogo’s transfer market challenges, Macuzzo explains: “We have lots of clubs fighting for the same goals and we have too many players spread over the world to target. 

“We are improving our parameters and our standard in finding players to fit our system. We can set the right player profile to bring into the team, and with this tool we can reach the clubs that can offer this kind of player for Botafogo, in conditions we are able to match.

“Even when you don't have a deal made, we have new connections and opportunities for the future of the club.”

“We've been using the Pitch feature. It's a good way to make connections and showcase our players, and even get some information from clubs and agents. It’s a good way to get approached by other clubs who have intent. When we see there is demand we can share information and showcase our players.”
