The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has revealed that they have officially received notification from FIFA regarding the acquisition of the agent license for Sierra Leoneans.

SLFA made this disclosure in a press release issued on Wednesday, 1 February 2023.

“To ensure a successful process for all applicants intending to apply under the Football Federation, SLFA is inviting interested members to a meeting on Monday, February 6, 2023, at the federation’s secretariat, 21 Battery Street Kingtom Freetown, at 2:pm,” SLFA stated.

Meanwhile, it’s a globally accepted standard that to become a football agent, the right body to approach is your local federation in your country.

Below are basic steps for intending applicants to acquire their licenses:

Step 1: – all football agents must be registered with FIFA and need to be registered with the football association in your country.

In case of dual nationality, you must register with the most recent nationality. Applicants must submit a written application for a player agent license to the relevant association.

Step. 2: Soccer Agent Exam

Once the application is successful and the association confirms that all requirements are met, the exam will be taken. Exams are usually held in March and September. The most basic knowledge of the test is about the rules of football (mainly about football transfers), civil law and the law of obligations.

Step 3: Insurance

Once you pass the exam and before issuing your license, the association must ensure you have professional liability insurance. This is insurance that will cover the risks that may occur due to the activities of the agent. It will also bear the losses that may be incurred when the agency activities are terminated.
