Although those of us who work in the world of sport tend to think in seasons, it’s always good to pause for a moment and look back at 2016, which has been a year filled with new projects for RR Soccer Management Agency.
We opened new offices in Las Palmas and Seville, the culmination of many years of hard work, adding to our office in Madrid. There is no doubt that we have excellent professionals here at RR Soccer. Your talent, ambition and enthusiasm are the pillars of this agency.
Continuing with this line of expansion, we signed a collaboration agreement with Magnus Sports, the company founded by Marc Anthony, to work together on image rights for our athletes in the American market.
Also, I don’t want to forget about women’s football, which has such potential for growth in our country. We joined Ana Rossell’s company, AR10, in an agreement to foster the growth and professionalization of a sport that is attracting more and more followers both in our country and around the world. As I said on the day we signed the agreement, we believe firmly in women’s football and we’re delighted to offer players all our services and contribute in helping the sport get the recognition and professional treatment it deserves.
Even though we’re only at the halfway point of the season, it has been a year full of success for our athletes. Sergio and Marcelo have written another page in the history books of Real Madrid by winning the Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup. They were also included in the FIFPro World XI 2015. Several of our players are playing in the Segunda División. I’d also like to make special mention of the young footballers and coaches represented by RR Soccer who work every day, at all levels, to achieve their dreams.
We also appreciate the work of our partners and collaborators: Julio Senn, Víctor Alfaro, Pedro Chueca, Dr. Antonio Escribano and Francisco Escobar. Thanks to all of you and your teams, our athletes have access to a range of services that are difficult to match.
I would also like to thank the media. They also help us get our message across and give visibility to all our activities and those of our athletes. They are, without doubt, essential travel companions in the world of sport. You all know that our doors are always open for you here.
I would like to wish you all a happy and prosperous 2017. May this season be, at least, as good as the last. I hope and wish that each and every one of you enjoy good health and that, looking back in 12 months, we can say that it’s been a year to remember.
President, RR-Soccer Management Agency
