Agents (or intermediaries) currently form an integral part of the game – whether they are beneficial or not is a debate to be had. However, by virtue of the type of services provided by them, often, intermediaries are required to work for/represent the interests of players who have not yet attained the age of maturity.

Whether due to negligence or a lack of understanding of the rules, a significant and consistent number of breaches relate to regulations which apply to working with minors. Working with minors gives rise to important safeguarding issues, and intermediaries who breach regulations of this nature will almost definitely face a ban and/or a fine.

This article considers best practices and how to avoid the pitfalls as an intermediary when working with minors.

  • Requirements to represent a minor
  • Entering into a representation contract with a minor
  • Remuneration of an intermediary representing a minor
  • Obligations, duties and sanctions
