On 24 February 2020, the Minister for Youth Policy and Sport On. Vincenzo Spadafora signed the Ministerial Decree on sports agents, amending the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 23 March 2018 and taking into account the resolution of the National Council of CONI no. 1649 of 29 October 2019, whose effects had been suspended by subsequent resolution of the President of CONI no. 05/05 of 15 January 2020.
The scope of this new Decree is to address the need to specifically establish the regulatory provisions relating to the recognition of professional qualifications obtained by sports agents in other EU and non-EU Member States, harmonizing and facilitating the recognition procedure, in order to allow these subjects to carry out their activities also in Italy.
In recent years, the role of sports agents has become increasingly important in the sporting sector, especially in football. It has therefore become more necessary and increasingly required a clear regulation of the activity of these professionals. What rules have been introduced into our system?
