Athlete Career Management

Athlete Career Management (Comistar ACM) is an innovative concept for athletes designed to develope the career and manage the life outside of sports. Comistar has built the ACM concept in cooperation with active and retired athletes on top of their fields.

Athlete Career Management is suitable for seasoned professionals and for young athletes at the start of their careers.

Our service model is based on a dedicated manager and support staff of our global Comistar team. We’re helping clients with legal matters, branding, sponsorship deals, and finances.

Athlete’s careers are always limited by time, and we’re helping our clients to build a sustainable financial plan for life after professional sports career.

Any sports is competitive, and our goal is to enable our clients to fully concentrate on their career and development to have an edge – to be a bit stronger, a bit faster, and a bit sharper than rest.

Comistar has served businesses and entrepreneurs for years, and through that we’ve built a strong global network and experience. Smart athletes turn their careers into business, and they need similar support as entrepreneurs to be successful.

We help you to manage the business that is your career, build a scalable brand platform, and take care of the administrative burden. Your colleagues won’t understand how do you manage to do everything, and thats the power of proven concepts and systematic approach you’ll have with us.

Our Athlete Career Management concept is built on five main pillars:

1. On-demand support on daily needs and questions.
2. Deals – sponsorships and negotations with clubs.
3. Financial plan & investments.
4. Legal – all your contracts and agreements are reviewed by lawyers.
5. Career As A Business – marketing, business opportunities, image, etc.

Please get in touch with us via contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that we ask our clients to fill in an application to understand whether we are a good fit. As we always give 100% to our clients, we are only looking for athletes who are fully committed to their careers, and are ready to turn their careers into profitable businesses.
