Football Careers & FirstPoint USA Combine to Launch New Recruitment Partnership
Football Careers has joined forces with FirstPoint USA, the world’s leading sports scholarship agency, to celebrate the new year with an exciting new partnership.
Launched ahead of this week’s United Soccer Coaches Convention in Philadelphia, which both organisations will be attending, the partnership has been created to enhance each party’s service offering and boost the recruitment of talent on both sides.
Founded in 2001 by star athlete Andrew Kean, FirstPoint USA is recognised as the world’s leading sports scholarship and university admissions service, supporting over 60,000 prospective student-athletes each year from across 182 countries. The company is certified by the NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA and the AIRC to create academic and sporting opportunities for international student-athletes: it is the only agency in the world to hold such certification.
Andrew Kean, founder and CEO of FirstPoint USA, welcomed the new partnership:
“We are delighted to team up with Football Careers and look forward to working with Piero and his colleagues to enhance our service offering. A number of strong synergies exist between the two organisations and the partnership will allow us to tap into each other’s network and expertise to grow our respective businesses.
“FirstPoint USA are committed to providing a first-class service to clients and their families beyond their time at university in the United States, and Football Careers can help us develop our client offering for those looking to develop their careers within sport.”
Piero Carrino, Managing Director at Football Careers, added:
“The partnership with FirstPoint USA is one we are very excited about as we look to grow our business both domestically and in the US. They bring a fantastic network of colleges, universities and coaches in America, and we are keen to support FirstPoint’s graduate clients with their first steps into employment through our CV building services and global job board platform.
“Both companies are leaders in our respective fields and the partnership is a great fit with wide-ranging mutual benefits.”
Both Firstpoint USA and Football Careers will be in attendance at the United Soccer Coaches Convention taking place in Philadelphia from 11 – 15 January, the world’s leading soccer coaching event.
