USM and ISMG unite to create agency giant
by Jonathan Rest

The consolidation of the football agency business is continuing apace, with two of the largest independent agencies, Unique Sports Management and International Sports Management, to merge.

We are delighted to welcome ISMG to the Unique family and believe this joint vision will allow us to maximise our European network at a time when interest in UK based players from across the continent continues to grow. This alliance allows us to cement our place as the leading agency across the UK and German market.
Will Salthouse
Co-CEO, Unique Sports Group

The UK's USM and Germany's ISMG have joined forces to form Unique Sports Group, which will have a combined client market value of over £650m, making it one of the top five global football agencies.

 

England and Manchester City star Phil Foden has just signed up to Unique Sports Group, while other top players represented by the firm include fellow England internationals Reece James and Callum Wilson, German internationals Matthias Ginter and Kevin Volland and Turkey's Hakan Calhanoglu.

 

In total, around 300 players will be represented by Unique Sports Group, which will operate from five offices: London and Manchester in England; Munich and Karlsruhe in Germany; and Curitiba, in Brazil.

 

The new agency will be led by joint CEOs Will Salthouse (USM) and Gordon Stipic-Wipfler (ISMG).
