The GSF Difference.
GSF agents are different – we like to create lasting relationships with young athletes and their families, as this always forms the basis of loyalty, trust and integrity and has been the foundation of the success of the directors to date in their careers.
GSF’s vision is to be the market leader and ‘go-to’ company in the sports agency field by consistently exceeding the expectations of our clients while remaining true to our principles of loyalty and family values.

Bucking the trend
As a client of GSF, you will not be passed to a player manager or client manager. When you sign with an agent, you do so because you have made a choice on the person, not the company. When you sign with a GSF agent, he or she will always be your first point of contact.
The team at GSF offers you a full management service, a one-stop shop. Contract negotiations, media profiling, education and careers advice, brand development, wealth management, investment and insurance advice, legal services, image rights, sports psychology and property portfolio management are all under the GSF umbrella.
