To achieve its goals, Epic Sports has recruited highly experienced collaborators in the football world such as Jordi Lardìn in Spain (Ex-La Liga player and former Espanyol sporting director), Armand Doorn (knowledgeable Dutch agent and intermediary), Alain Behi and Mehdi El Meezi (Experts in the French transfer market), Fulvio Marrucco (lawyer and agent for thirty years in Italy).

Together with him, his brother Artur Futre is a bona fide link in Lisbon and not only, thanks to his long career as an agent and talent scout.
Epic Sports also has Sport Eleven Consultancy as a partner, a company that for over ten years has been involved in identifying and nurturing the best talents in the French football scene.
In addition, Epic Sports is currently involved in the construction of a soccer academy in Gambia (West Africa) – “Live Your Dreams” – thanks to which will enable that hundreds of children every year can eat, go to school and play football.
The Africa Project goes beyond our presence in Gambia, so much so that in the last year our scouting network has identified several young talents between Senegal, Mali and Angola: including, Nicolas Jackson, a Senegalese attacking midfielder, who is currently the starring for the U19s of Villarreal FC (Spain) where he recently signed a six-year contract.
