Player Management

Player Welfare

The Pitch Management recognises it's position as the link between the player and his club and maintains positive working relationships with all clubs. Players often require the objective advice of someone outside the club for many football and lifestyle decisions.

Contract Negotiation

Our extensive experience gives The Pitch Management a superior knowledge of the football market. Our process with contract negotiations is to involve all our expertise to find the best structured contract to suit that player, in terms of length, remuneration and any other clauses which may be applicable.

Financial Management

Our philosophy is that players need to learn to become competent in understanding their finances from the beginning. Basic budgeting and financial education is a key discussion point, along with assisting players to find the specialist accounting and tax advice.

Marketing & Media

Globally, football is established as the world's most popular team sport.
Football in Australia is an increasingly popular spectator sport in Australia, hence marketing and media opportunities for players are increasingly available.
