Secure Your Future and Retire A Millionaire

Taking Footballers From Pitch To Prosperity With Done-For-You Property Investment & Management Services

Life After Football Can Be Tough

As a pro football player, you’ve got all the perks of the job – a great income, a luxury lifestyle and the freedom to travel and do whatever you want…not to mention the glory of the game.

However, unlike most people, you don’t retire at 65. Instead, you’ve got 8-10 years at BEST before you’re done with football.

Without a solid plan in place to help you manage your wealth, you can easily fall into debt and financial distress.

Worse, unless you can figure out how to make your money work for you, you may have to downgrade your home and lifestyle and settle for a job you hate just to make ends meet.

Securing your financial future shouldn’t be so hard!

The good news is property investing is one of the best ways to secure your future and ensure you retire a millionaire.

It’s the perfect ‘invisible’ income stream that lets you build wealth for your future while protecting you and your family from financial distress.

We work with footballers just like you to...

Retire wealthy with true financial security

Have peace of mind for the future

Build a nest egg for your family

Never worry about finances ever again

Why Property Investing?

Finding the perfect career after playing the field as a professional footballer can be really challenging and confusing.

When I retired at the age of 27 due to a knee injury, I didn’t have any additional skills I could fall back on.

My biggest worry was that I’d end up in a dead-end job, struggling to make ends meet and worse, having to downgrade my lifestyle substantially.

Sadly, it’s an all-too-common problem among football players who often end up in financial ruin and endless personal problems if they don’t have a career path they can confidently get into.

Property investing is one of the best ways to secure your income without having to sacrifice your lifestyle or end up in a job you hate.

Even better, with our complete, done-for-you service, you can focus on levelling up your game while we handle everything from start to finish.

Planning for retirement is crucial for footballers to ensure financial stability and a smooth transition into their post-playing careers. Here are five steps to follow⬇️

1. **Start Early with Financial Education and Planning:**
 Learn financial basics! Budgeting, saving, and investing will help you make informed decisions with your earnings.💸

2. **Create Income Streams:**
 Invest wisely in property, stocks, or a business. Diversify to mitigate risks but focus enough to make a real impact.💰

3. **Develop Skills and Plan for a Second Career:**
 Pursue education and training. Online courses, degrees, or vocational training can prepare you for a new career or business venture.💡

4. **Plan for Health and Insurance:**
 Regular check-ups, proper nutrition, and mental health support are vital, especially during the transition from football to the real world.💪

5. **Build a Support Network:**
 Seek mentorship and counseling for guidance on career transitions. Maintain relationships with former teammates, coaches, and industry professionals for support and opportunities.🤝
1. I was in a fortunate position to be able to buy my own home at 19 and my first investment property at 21 in Bristol city centre whilst playing for Bristol City FC. Both of these assets are still part of my portfolio now. 📈

2. I pursued an investment strategy of purchasing multiple properties 🏘️

3. A route I considered was becoming a Financial Advisor. After passing the first exam, I decided running my own business would be more gratifying and would allow me to give more real value to my players 🤝

4. Being forced to retire from professional football at 27 due to injury has resulted in  daily rehabilitation of my damaged body to try and live a normal pain free life. 😢

5. After not receiving the support I felt I deserved post-football, I have now created a service to support my community of footballers. ⚽️

The latest addition to the portfolio…but this project is a little different to the rest…introducing our little baby girl Inaya! 👶🩷

Born April 8th 2024 at 05:14am 📆

After a mental 8 days Mum and baby are finally home safe and sound 🥰

Well…here comes the chaos! But amidst it all, we’re determined to be the guiding lights for our little one. Let the crazy beautiful journey begin! ✨
Here’s a Case Study for a Players Project! ⚽️🏘️

This was project 13 🔢

We bought this 3 bed property 3.5 years ago for £127,000. 💸

It was renovated for £25,000 (renovations were a lot cheaper in 2019!!) and it’s been let continuously to the same family ever since! 🙂

By buying in a great postcode, it’s now worth over £200,000. 📈

Building equity of £50,000 AND generating consistent rental income are key components of a successful investment strategy. 💡

This is one of 7 projects this Premiership player has completed with us. 🏘️

Planning for the long term and making smart investment decisions lead to financial security and a comfortable retirement! 🏖️

If you’re interested in building up a portfolio of assets, get in touch now to book an Intensive 👨‍💻
We’ve picked up a lot of new projects recently through the effort we have been putting in behind the scenes. There are:
✔️ New systems and processes being implemented 
✔️ Virtual Assistants that are based in the Philippines hired to do some of the manual legwork 
✔️ Maintaining our relationships with existing agents, solicitors and builders who all drip feed us property deals 🏚️

We’ve never failed to complete on a project that we’ve offered on! However we do get plenty of offers rejected 🙅🏻 The follow up is so important and that’s where we pick up the vast majority of our deals…6/12/18 months after our original offer! 😲 Who said this game was easy?! 🤷‍♂️

There’s no such thing as an overnight success… 
I first invested in Property in 2009 whilst playing footy. Now 15 years later and over 5 years full-time in the Property Business enables our Players to piggyback off our years of experience, our local knowledge and contacts. They get to build their Property Portfolio whilst focusing on their main game: Playing football ⚽️

The Greater Manchester market isn’t showing any signs of slowing down and there appear to be more opportunities this year. If you’re looking for a Bespoke Property Plan that’s tailored to you, drop me a message and let’s get a PPG Intensive booked! 📊
Absolutely amazing experience!! ⚽️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏟️
Thursday night’s game was incredible! To feel that atmosphere and see friends get one step closer to one of their dream achievements was very inspirational! 🙌
Felt like we had the best tickets in the house too! Thank you @_meps 🙂
These are the perks of the job! I was very lucky to be part of a 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 squad vs Bulgaria here in 2010. It’s been 14 years since I’ve been back! I was only on the bench…and bloody lucky to be there! 😅
I did make my Euro qualifier debut off the bench a week later vs Switzerland…but giving away a penalty in the last goal of a 4-1 defeat was not the international debut I dreamed of 😂
Regardless, getting my international cap was the proudest moment of my short career and I didn’t reach anything close to the levels that those lads on Thursday were performing. Genuinely was so inspiring to see them achieving their dreams on that stage! 🏟️
I’ll stick to the world of property now instead 🏘️ and build portfolios to support as many of the guys as I can, for life after footy…all whilst cheering from sidelines 👏🤝
Now just one more huge effort!! Best of luck chaps!! @_meps @kieffermoore @adavies40

Want to know how we made £80,000 profit on a Flip Project without doing a refurb?💰

Come check out the story behind our record breaking Auction sale! 👨‍⚖️

This property was sourced via one of our Direct to Vendor letter campaigns. 📬

2020: The owner contacted us about his own home. 📞

A 2 year lease option was negotiated with the vendor. 🤝

Mar 2021: We Exchanged with a 10% deposit. 🤝

This allowed us to go to planning to convert the building into 5 apartments. Planning took over a year to get approval. And the vendor needed months of time to move on to their next home. 🏡

Feb 2023: After raising the funds from one of our regular private investors, we completed on the property at a purchase price of £150,000. 💰

After going to tender, the refurb costs had now skyrocketed, making the project, in our opinion, unviable to us due to the time, effort and risk we would need to take on. 
Particularly due to the volume of refurb projects that we continually have on at one time. 🏘️

Aug 2023: A cash offer was accepted from a private buyer. A 6 week completion timeline was stipulated, however this kept getting pushed back again and again. Finally a hard deadline of 1st Feb 2024 was given to the buyer, which was not met. ❌

Feb 2024: We decided to put it in auction where it achieved a total of 85 bids! 🤯 It went absolutely mental with 75 bids in the last 25mins! It sold for £270,000! 📈

The REALITY is, it’s taken us 4 years to earn our profit!! 🕰️

Would you like to see an in depth video, where I’ll breakdown the numbers for you? 📈🔢
