ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

KSM Group is a sports agency, which was rebranded in the year 2019. Our roots date back to 2012, when we started as Kokkuta Management and we managed the careers of handball, volleyball, basketball and football players. Over the 7 years of existence Kokkuta Management managed to guide a lot of athletes and made over 100 transactions including signed contracts and trials. Over the period we as agents gained a lot of experience and knowledge of the industry and we felt that we need to change in order to match needs of athletes and clubs and make another step in our development. We decided to rebrand as we had grown to a bigger agency boasting of several agents and scouts. We decided to go forward with two sports - football and handball. 

The first 7 years was really educational period as we saw a lot of different athletes and club structures. As we as an agency are fully dedicated to our work and we work with passion then we only want to work with similar characters. The sports world has developed a lot over the last decade and we feel that the only way to reach the top is to fully dedicate yourself to your craft and only then is it possible to take the maximum of your potential. With the new brand KSM Group we only want to tie ourselves with athletes, who also feel that passion towards their craft and are willing to sacrifice themselves to reach the top of their respectable sport.
