MEET OUR PLAYERS & COACHES
At 124 Not Out Sports Agency, we sign the best cricketers on and off the field. Branding and talent goes hand in hand for us. Once a cricketer is strategically branded, then the word “retirement” is not a dirty word or something to fear. This is what we mean by taking your career to the next level. Cricketers should never have to worry about retirement or about being treated with the respect they deserve. We handle every aspect of your career. This includes branding, booking, financial planning and wealth building, contract negotiations and reviews, to name a few.
MEET OUR TEAM
Our team members have all had international experience in cricket, cricket administration, branding and marketing, entrepreneurship and life coaching. We have all been advisors to athletes, in one capacity or another. We just decided it was time to take our players to another level and change the game on and off the field.
