ESPORTIF INTERNATIONAL


Esportif International is a global company that specialises in the management of world class rugby talent and the provision of advisory services to professional rugby clubs and national unions.

GLOBAL OUTLOOK

Esportif has a presence in all of rugby’s key territories - enabling us to think global while acting local.

PHILOSOPHICAL HEARTBEAT

Esportif strives to maximise the talent and earnings of our clients and in doing so, assist them in realising their career and life ambitions.

BEHAVIOURAL COMPASS

Innovation, integrity and ambition are core values that drive our daily behaviours.

TALENT MANAGEMENT


Esportif’s approach to talent management allows us to attract and retain the world’s best emerging and established rugby talent.

PLAYERS

Esportif represents players across the full talent spectrum, from junior players to fully-fledged internationals.


  • Esportif’s primary function is to source and negotiate the terms of playing contracts on behalf of our clients. Esportif’s global reach and unrivalled market knowledge enables our player managers to identify and maximise these opportunities.
  • Esportif’s dedicated Commercial and Media division has developed trusted relationships with PR companies, media channels and key industry brands which has lead to our clients activating campaigns across multiple brands through a variety of platforms.

  • In the high pressured, emotionally charged world of professional sport, Esportif’s duty of care to mentor and guide clients is integral to our offering. Emphasis is placed on lifestyle balance, further education or skill acquisition in chosen fields of interest and players are encouraged to access governing body and player association initiatives to prepare for their post rugby career.

COACHES

Esportif has a dedicated division within the company solely attuned to representing coaches.


  • Representing coaching staff is a unique proposition, requiring a different skill set, knowledge base and level of experience to that of player management.
  • With unrivalled access to primary decision makers developed over more than 15 years representing Directors of Rugby, Head Coaches and other key performance staff, Esportif is regarded as the global leader in the management of coaches.
  • Esportif plays an active role in career development; facilitating peer-to-peer coach exchange opportunities via its global network, co-ordinating exclusive coaching conferences and pursuing other career professional development opportunities for its clients.

LEGENDS

Esportif represents the commercial interests of legends of the game beyond their playing days.


  • Esportif Legends refers to those clients who have achieved the highest accolades in rugby across the globe and are now looking to maximise their potential off the pitch, having called time on their professional rugby careers.

  • Esportif’s dedicated commercial team can advise and identify the best-suited opportunities for this elite group of former players, helping to build tailored commercial profiles.
  • Utilising Esportif’s extensive network of industry contacts, the commercial team works hard to connect former players with opportunities that are a fit for both parties - in media and PR, as well as with globally recognised brands and sponsors inside and outside of rugby.

COMMERCIAL AND MEDIA


Esportif has a dedicated commercial team working across all territories who are highly skilled in sourcing and securing off field commercial opportunities for our clients.
We have developed longstanding trusted relationships with key industry stakeholders, brands, agencies and media outlets enabling us to maximise our client’s commercial potential.
