Frequently Asked Questions
Sponsors have a lot of lawyers behind them, who draft contracts and other legal documentation in a way that is favorable to them. Quite often, their interests can conflict with the interests of content creators. Consequently, in the worst-case scenario after signing a contract, a content creator can be trapped in an unfair deal from several perspectives: a content creator is not entitled to fair payment, they are limited in signing deals with other sponsors, and they are not allowed to manage their own personal brand properly.
The role of the agent is to look after the content creator’s best interests when negotiating a contract with a sponsor or when handling the player’s image rights. An agent represents the content creator, handles the paperwork, and looks after the legal aspects of the player’s professional esports career. In short, having an agent allows the player to focus on gaming, while your agent takes care of the business side of the deal.
At the SPIKE Esports Agency, we only represent gamers. We do not represent sponsors. In that way, there are no conflicts of interest between the interests of the content creators we represent and other stakeholders. In addition, we only get a percentage from any agreed deals between the content creators and sponsors, so it is also in our best interest to negotiate the best possible deal for each player we represent.
If you are an established content creator and would like to get out of or renegotiate an existing deal or sign a new contract with other sponsors, we can help you with that.
If you are entering the professional esports industry and would like to sign your first deal, we can negotiate the terms with the sponsor on your behalf.
When somebody offers you a document to sign, contact us for advice on what to do in order to avoid any legal traps.
No. In case we will be representing you in front of a sponsor, you as a content creator will have the final call if you would like to close the deal. We cannot and will not force you to sign anything and you are not required to pay us anything, except in the case of a successfully negotiated deal.
We represent and offer legal support services to influencers who have already gained significant support on social networks such as Twitch, Instagram, and YouTube.
Yes, our scope of operations is not limited to specific countries. Our agency can represent you in front of sponsors from any country.
