A Word From Craig Moore

Former Glasgow Rangers, Newcastle United, Borussia Mönchengladbach player, Australia National Team Captain and Brisbane Roar Sports Director.

“I’ve been playing and operating at some of the highest levels of football for 30 odd years and I thought I knew everything there was to know, but it looks like there was more to learn.

The in-depth education and training that John & Phil offer at the JV Academy is unrivalled in its class and has taught me a great amount about the agent’s side of the game and even the football industry as a whole.

I couldn’t recommend this process more for people who want to realise their dream of working in football – if it can teach me a thing or two, I’d love to see what it can teach someone new to the game.”

Kieran Brown Testimonial


John & Phil have over 45 years’ combined experience working as football agents. During their time, they have seen the sport undertake a remarkable change. They have handled the transfers and commercial deals of some of the world’s most popular players including Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos and Christian Karembeu, dealing with clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Valencia, Monaco, Celtic, Rangers and Boca Juniors among many more.

Since the door has opened for anyone to potentially become a football intermediary they wanted to take this opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with the aim of educating people about how this remarkable industry really works and what is required to make a success of it.

All whilst doing their bit to ensure that this new influx into the industry of fresh talent is properly trained and prepared to operate in the industry in an honest and professional manner.
