We are a football agency rooted in cold Finland. We represent many successful athletes and provide a range of strategic marketing and consulting services to corporate clients and sport clubs all over the world.
Boll Brands was founded in 2012 from a desire to do things differently. Our team members themselves have fought their way through dusty sand pitches to become professional athletes. We saw the cruelness of the world of sports with our own eyes. We tasted the bitterness of defeats, injuries, career endings. But we also won championships, met fantastic people, shared the joy of sport.
After our careers we wondered what was missing during our times as professionals. The things that are still missing – the things we can, and want to, affect through the use of our experience, knowledge, creativity and wide contact network, to make the lives of athletes, brands and sports clubs all over the world easier.
But that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as glorious. It’s never mattered if it’s been the goal at the Kop end at Anfield or if it’s been your parents’ garage door, the dreams have always been the same – the desire to do better next time, and to do it exponentially rather than linearly. It’s not about instant economical profits for ourselves. It’s about to help an athlete reach his or her full potential, and even exceed that.
But none of it is worth anything if we can’t look back at it with our heads held high – whether it’s begrudgingly accepting defeat or wildly celebrating a win. We play hard when need to, but always by respecting the rules, principles and people around us. It’s something you learn when you’ve stood on either side enough times.
Yet in the end, what matters is the same today as it’s always been: getting the result. We won’t be remembered for the possession we kept or the chances we created, the nutmegs and the rainbow flicks. Points on the board or bust.
