Brands / Companies

A subscription for brands/companies/agencies costs €35 (+VAT if applicable) a month or €360 (+VAT if applicable) a year.

The final cost for an opportunity is the budget that you set for the opportunity, plus any relevant bank processing charges.

When a client and star agree to work together, Sport Endorse requires a 50% deposit to confirm the booking. Booking deposits are non-refundable if you cancel after booking a star. If a star cancels and Sport Endorse is unable to find a suitable replacement, we will refund the full amount you have paid us.

If you book within 14 days of your event, we will require the full payment within 7 days and prior to the event to confirm the booking. If the sports star does not turn up to the event, Sport Endorse will provide a full refund.

Marketing agencies and approved clients may qualify for customised payment terms. Contact us to discuss.

We offer flexible payment options by Corporate Credit Card, via Stripe. Stripe is an Irish-American financial services company specialising in online payment processing, similar to Paypal. Payments can also be made by bank transfer. In both cases the platform will automatically generate an invoice. You may also choose to part-pay the athlete with some of your products or services.

Yes, this can be done in the description of the opportunity or it can be discussed directly with the talent via the messenger within the platform. Please note also some talent may have some restrictions of their own due to sponsorship arrangements.

Currently no, but this ability is in the development road map for a future release.

However, when creating an opportunity you can target athletes based on various different factors such as their sport, gender, age and country.

You can also ‘favourite’ Talent to keep track of what profiles you think might be suitable for your needs.

By joining Sport Endorse you will have access to over 3000 athletes, all of whom will be able to help you promote your brand using their large followings, increasing your brand’s public exposure which leads to more sales.

The only fee you will have to pay us is an initial subscription fee of €360 annually. Otherwise, all payments are made with the athlete.

This answer helps brands to decide which application they want to move forward with and thus which athlete to respond to.

Firstly, great news on getting good interest for your campaign. There are many ways to evaluate the incoming applications, some of the preferred criteria to consider include:

high engagement so you know which athletes have followers that engage with their post

a strong pitch that was personalized to your campaign and shows the athlete’s enthusiasm to work together

 value for money i.e. looking at athletes who are working within your budget despite being valued at a much higher rate

location, do you prefer to work with someone more local or someone who is in one of your target markets

We also try to help by letting you know which athletes are active on Sport Endorse, and show you their rating if they have one from previous deals.

Include as much information as you want, and feel free to supplement this with videos (upload directly or link in from YouTube), and links to articles. You should also connect up your social media accounts if you have them as some brands take your number of followers into consideration.
